An Android version named 'Nankhatai'? Why not? Well, Google CEO Sundar Pichai thinks it is not a bad idea. After naming its Android versions lollipop, kit-kat, ice-cream sandwich and jellybean, Google might name the future generation of Androids after the names of Indian desserts, says Mr. Pichai.
In a free-wheeling conversation with students at Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) in Delhi University on Thursday, Mr. Pichai said the tech giant might conduct an online poll while naming its future androids. “And if all Indians vote, I think we can make [an Indian name] it happen,” he said.

The 43-year-old Chennai-born tech executive, who is on a two-day visit to India, attended an interactive session, #AskSundar, organised by the college in association with Google.
During the session, Mr. Pichai answered questions by students from various schools and colleges, gathered at the indoor sports stadium of SRCC college, which was packed to capacity.
The session was moderated by cricket commentator, Harsha Bhogle, who called the India-born executive the 'Rahul Dravid of the tech industry'. During the conversation with Mr. Bhogle, the tech executive also expressed his love for cricket.
He said that he wanted to be a cricketer in his childhood and admired legends like Sunil Gavaskar.
“I did dream of being a cricketer like so many Indians. I used to be a huge fan of [Sunil] Gavaskar when he was playing and later, Sachin [Tendulkar] when he played. I always had a dream,” he said.
Apart from talking about expansion plans of Google and the education system in India, Mr. Pichai also spoke about his personal interests. When someone asked him what he would have been if not the Google CEO, he said that he would still build software.
“Things that I am excited about are computer science, engineering, coding and self-driven cars,” said the self-proclaimed tech geek, who claims to own 20-30 smartphones.
