    "I am Rahul" or "My name is Rahul" would be a little more idiomatic, I think (at least from my US perspective). "This is Rahul" might be used on the phone in the context of identifying one's voice.

    If you said "This is Rahul", I'd probably ask "where?".
    Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.

    "I am Rahul."

    "My name is Rahul."

    If you wanted to be really formal you can say something like, "Please allow me to introduce myself. Rahul ________ (shake hands)"


    Like Seymour said, "This is Rahul" is really something you'd only say when answering a telephone.

    "Hi, I'm Rahul." (less formal)

    "Hello, my name is Rahul." (more formal)


    We don't indicate location - like "before you"/"in front of you", unless you were to say, "Hi, I'm Rahul, and I'm standing before you today (to talk about my life, etc.)...". It seems very obvious you're in front of the group, so there's no need to state that unless you are explaining why you're in front of them.

    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.
