Naukuchiatal OR Naukuchiyatal???

Someone rightly said, "words have meaning and names have power". Naukuchiyatal is probably the right spelling of Naukuchiatal if you literally want to spell it in English. But we all know how cool a language Englis(h) is...Always reminds us of Amitabh Bachchan in "Namak Halal" :-) Aha...our very own Amitabh from Sherwood College in Nainital. Sorry, I am little slow and couldnt figure out his influence on Naukuchi(y)atal ;-) No offences, Amit ji. God bless you for taking the language for a ride :)

Coming back to the the spelling controversy (just created by me)... I believe Naukuchiatal is the right way to spell it. However, some people like me will take domain name with a "y" and then create all the fuss. Come one guys, give it to me... After all we need some "chaat masala" (Indians afterall) to keep this blog rolling.
Name does have power but google keywords are far more powerful today. While doing a search on this place, please search with Naukuchiatal and NOT Naukuchiyatal for you ll not get related or best results if you search with the latter. Hope it helps...:)
