Pooja is a pretty common Indian girl name. I’m sure if you’re Indian (or even if you’re not), you probably know or are friends with someone with that name.

Pooja also means prayers and is a word that you may constantly hear growing up in an Indian household. If you’re not the pious sort, which most of the new generation aren’t – the following statements are probably some you’ve heard plenty of times:

Aaj pooja hai. Ghar jaldi pehuch jaana! Ghumne mat chale jaana‘ (There are prayers today. Get home early! Don’t make other plans. )

Akhri baar kab pooja ki thi tumne? Bilkul nasthik ho gaye ho!‘ (When’s the last time you prayed? You’ve become an atheist!)

We use this play on the word in our latest scenario between Mataji and Puttar…
