What's in a Name?

There are lots of words for 'naked' in Bengali, especially if you're a little boy and still surrounded by some remnants of baby talk -- langto, nanto, nanto-bhanto, nano, nangu etc.

So I suppose I oughtn't think it was deliberate when Rahul's grandfather asked him to identify a car on the road and he promptly answered, "Langto!"
