    Stupid name.!! Instead it should have been called 'Mahasohon'

    Navin Monday, 13 May 2013 07:18 AM

    Storms are named by the World Meteorological Organization based on pre-submitted lists of names. Since the is a storm in the Indian Ocean, it is possible that the name was submitted by the Indians, because after all, Mahasen is an Indian name. Sri Lankans cannot claim ownership of a word simply because it belonged to one of our kings, and not everything needs to be an insult to Sri Lanka when it is used in a global context. Our people need to grow up.

    Who gave this great name for this kind of destructive thing

    Sethunga Arachchi Monday, 13 May 2013 08:40 AM

    Sri Lanka is a member of the World Meteorological Organization and it has rights to check the provisional list. Sri Lankan authorities should ask its diplomatic mission in Geneva to keep an eye on this list before any name is used in order to avoid the use of names on which we are keen to label such destructive cyclones.
