Laila

Since idiocy is not the birthright of America, India puts its stake in the ground by naming its cyclone Laila. And every 'maramandai' media outlet repeats the word Laila like a parrot with news items like "Laila spreads her legs in Andhra" etc. Why not rename Andhra Pradesh as Majnu. The twain shall never meet again. We'll be rid of Laila forever

Since we've started naming weather related events with cine actress names, maybe we should also name bodily functions after cine actresses. Start naming slow silent and smelly 'farts but no shit' after Revathi and Suhasini. The thunderous ones will of-course be called Namitha Ghushboo etc. So people who get excited by these current affairs gimmicks will talk to each other, "remember my Namitha after Ramesh's kalyana saapadu.. That is how big cyclone Laila is".

The naming system is common across the region with each country coming up with a name, Laila apparently came from Pakistan. Some of the countries are Sri Lanka, Thailand, Burma

Exactly...Reddy-garu is right. The one which is named for the next hurricane is Bandu by Srilanka, which means 'friend'. Koduma sir...

'Storms of tropical storm strength are given names to allow the public to easily distinguish between systems when there are multiple systems in an individual basin at the same time.' Source - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tropical_cyclone_naming
