Eager to create a website and wanting to solve a perennial problem, I created howtopronouncemyname.com. With a goal to make people laugh and maybe learn how to pronounce my name, I kept an eye to having a diverse cast of people pronouncing my name and included a video with two people teaching and learning.
The website featured people pronouncing my name with their portraits in buttons. Once tapped, their portrait will go into full colour.
It also featured a video with Nick Angiers (on the right, below) teaching Mihir Vaidya how to pronounce my name. Nick has a Masters in Chinese Linguistics.
The backgrounds of each section featured many mispronunciations of my name, which viewers felt were a humorous touch.
