Lassi is a thick, yogurt based drink popular in the area and that name is favored by graduates from the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT). Meanwhile, another group from IIT Kharagpur sent an open letter to Google’s Sundar Pichai, saying that the country's support of Android deserves to be rewarded. This group would like to see another Indian sweet called Ladoo get the nod for Android 5.0.
Google was able to work out some special tie-in deals with KitKat related to the Android 4.4 naming, such as a special version of the candy bar containing a contest to win a Nexus 7 (2013). Is this the wave of the future? What food company could Google use for "L" that could also offer promotions like KitKat? How about Lipton Tea for Android 5.0. A little too Milquetoast for such an important build number?
Some in India are campaigning for Google to use regional sweet Ladoo as the name for the next Android build
