Android 'Lassi'

Students from IIT, Kharagpur, were in Ludhiana on Saturday to garner support to name next Google's Android operating system as 'Lassi'.

The organising team of Kshitij, the IIT's annual fest, visited Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College (GNDEC).
“Google is known to name Android versions on desserts. It named its last version Kit Kat,” said Ritesh Saraogi, a team member, hoping that their campaign would make Google name the next Android version behind India's much-loved dairy drink.

“At GNDEC, we created awareness about our Lassi campaign and got a good response. We also organised a wokshop at Lovely Professional University, Jalandhar,” said Saraogi, an MSc economics student at Kharagpur IIT.

There are 50 students from the technology institute who are touring the length and breadth of the country for the campaign. “It has been announced that the name of the next version of Android will start from the letter L. So, we want Google to name the next version 'Lassi'.”

In India, the average annual growth of Android is 57.7% a year, claims the Kharagpur IIT team.

“India is among the top contributors to Android's growth," Saraogi claimed.

Gurpreet Singh, a student of GNDEC, said the campaign was informative.

“It would be fun to have an Android version named 'Lassi'. As for me, I never knew that Android's previous versions had been named after desserts,” he said.

The IIT team has already written an open letter to Sundar Pichai, senior vice-president at Google who oversees Android, Chrome and Google Apps.

Pichai is an alumnus of Kharagpur IIT. The team also promoted Kshitij, the IIT's techno-management fest, which will be held from January 31 to February 3.

What's in a name?

Google has a liking for food when it comes to naming the version of its mobile operating system Android, as is evident:

Honeycomb Ice Cream Sandwich
Jelly Bean
Kit Kat
Lassi ?
