Jelly Bean vs Jalebi: If Android Was Made In Pakistan

Jelly Bean vs Jalebi: If Android Was Made In Pakistan

As most of you already know, one of the most popular operating systems for mobile phones and tablets is Android, as developed by Google. It has the largest installed base of all operating systems of any kind. Android has been the best selling OS on tablets since 2013, and on smartphones it is dominant by any metric.

But that isn’t what this article is about. The thing that most people know about is the name of different Android updates. Kitkat, Jelly Bean, Lollipop, Marshmallow, etc. They are basically names of desserts in alphabetical order. However, these are the names that the goras at Google came up with. And since we desis are up and coming front-runners in the tech industry, we should get a say too! You must wonder what they would be like if us desis were in charge of naming them? Let’s find out!

If you aren’t a fan of fruit chaat, I won’t be surprised if your parents disown you. Unless they don’t know, in which case I suggest that you keep it that way.

G

What they call it:

Android G is Gingerbread.

Gulab Jamun are the most sacred of all forms of mithai. Just picking them up and watching the sheera drip off them is enough to give you a mouthgasm.

Android H is Honeycomb.

Any time a Pakistani thinks of going out for breakfast, only one thing comes to mind. Halwa. Puri. A feast fit for kings regardless of how wealthy you are.

Because come on. We desis love our ice-cream. Nothing quite beats two scoops of peshawari ice-cream in a cup!

J

Android J is Jelly Bean.

What we’d call it:

This dessert is the best of them all. There’s nothing that can even compare to freshly made jalebi and the way it makes your fingers all covered with that amazing sheera as you break a piece off.

K

What they call it:

Android K is Kit-Kat.

On a hot day when you’re practically melting, nothing quite beats the heat like an ice cold kulfi that hits the spot so well it gives you a foodgasm!

Laddu

This mithai is specifically used on special occasions like an engagement, the birth of a child, etc. One must exercise caution while eating laddus though, because eating too many will result in you looking like one.

M

What they call it:

Android M is Marshmallow.

What we’d call it:

Meetha Paan

As evidence by the stains we see on sidewalks all over the country, paan is loved by the masses more than they love anything else. And why have regular paan when you can have meetha paan instead?

Since we’ve yet to see a desi picked name, let’s hope OS update Android N will be something more diverse!
