In fact, an international body by the name of Regional Specialised Meteorological Centre, located right within the Indian Meteorological Department in Delhi, has the responsibility of christening all cyclones that hit India, Pakistan, Oman, Bangladesh, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Thailand in the North Indian Ocean region, every year
Hurricanes in the beginning of the century were deadly and notorious and were usually named after politicians. When objections were raised by those concerned, during the World War-II, Army and Navy meteorologists started naming tropical cyclones after their girlfriends and wives. This too led to severe criticism
