Let’s know.

Which country gave the name, how is the naming done

Bangladesh has given the name of this storm. The Meteorological Department explained that tropical cyclones are given a name to avoid any confusion by weather forecasters. In 2004, a consensus was reached on a formula for naming storms for the Indian Ocean region. The 8 countries that fall in this region are Bangladesh, India, Maldives, Myanmar, Oman, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Thailand. These countries all gave a set of names. Biparjoy means very happy.

How is the name selected
Before naming a storm, it is seen that it should not be offensive and controversial. Should be easy to pronounce and easy to remember. To keep the name, the name of the cyclonic storm arising in the Indian Ocean is not kept more than 8 letters. At first there was no way to name a storm. Later scientists made a standard procedure for this. India’s IMD is one of the six meteorological centers that give names to cyclones. These weather stations only give names to cyclones, but names are taken in such a way that no one’s sentiments are hurt and these names are never repeated.
