NEW DELHI: Deoband should be renamedDevbrad’, said the new MLA Brijesh Singh, who has won the Muslim-dominated seat in Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh for the BJP after a gap of nearly two decades. The city was known as Devbrad during the Mahabharata era and the Pandava brothers spent their one year in incognito exile here, Singh told ET. “But later the name was changed to Deoband, after the Darul Uloom Deoband school was set up here. Why should the town be known only by the school when its history related to the Mahabharata is age-old? I will press this issue in the state assembly,” he said. “It is not a Hindu-Muslim issue,” Singh said, citing three villages around Deoband as historical proof. “My own village, Jadodajat, is part of Rankhandi village. The ‘ran’ (war) of Mahabharta started from here. From Hastinapur near Meerut to Kurukshetra, Pandavas travelled for war through my village.

Apart from just looking a little odd, the livery was a strange juxtaposition against what is at its core a highly polluting exercise. Jordan 197 - 1997 Image 4 of 7 Image 4 of 7 The iconic yellow livery associated with Eddie Jordan’s F1 team was always a striking contrast to the rest of the F1 paddock. However in the days of its sponsorship from Tobacco company Benson and Hedges, Jordan’s designers introduced a couple strange additions to the cars. In 1997 the 197 car inherited a snakes head on the nose cone, with fangs dropping down onto the front wings. Perhaps taking inspiration from the painted spitfires during the war, Jordan often used the animal in question to rename its sponsors for the races in which tobacco advertising was banned droppingBenson Hedges’ for ‘Bitten Hisses’. Groundbreaking F1 liveries McLaren MP4-21 - 2006 Image 5 of 7 Image 5 of 7 In the last years of the V10 Formula One era, teams were pushing the cars to their aerodynamic limits, but the extreme bodywork additions didnt dissuade McLaren from introducing a new chrome livery to really make the car pop on the track.

Boaty McBoatface isn't just a silly name the Internet thought up last year during a public campaign to rename a British ship anymore. Now, it's also a yellow submarine that is tasked with finding out what kind of effect global warming is having on oceans. The unmanned sub is part of a fleet that will start its mission this Friday in Antarctica before continuing on to the Southern Ocean, according to the National Environment Research Council. The research group said it chose the name following last year's viral campaign it launched to get the public's help in naming a $300-million research ship. More than 124,000 people voted for Boaty McBoatFace , but they ultimately decided to name it RRS Sir David Attenborough after the British naturalist and broadcaster. The popularity of Boaty could not be ignored, and so one of the National Oceanography Centres Autosub Long Range autonomous vehicles now proudly carries the name, NERC wrote on a page dedicated to the new submarine .

California, the state where Reagan served two terms as governor roughly a half-century ago, is still trying to pass a law creating a state holiday in his honor. In San Francisco, an inverse honor was even attempted: a proposition was put on the ballot to rename a sewage plant after President George W. Bush, who was wildly unpopular in the area. That effort failed in 2008. The situation is different in Illinois, a heavily Democratic state where Obama, the state’s adopted son, remains popular. It seems likely he’ll get a highway named after him — the only real question is what stretch will bear his name. And Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner has said he would support a day commemorating Obama — though he would not agree to a state holiday that involved a day off from government work. Pat Brady, a former state GOP chairman, said most people in his party — at least in Illinois — wouldn't argue with recognizing Obama.
