Hindi word is codename for Obama's UK visit
The choice of the word "chalaque" for Obama's trip has raised eyebrows.
London: Guess what's the codename Scotland Yard has chosen for US President Barack Obama's state visit to Britain later this month? It's "chalaque", a Hindi word that means sharp and crafty.
An article in the Daily Telegraph said that the Scotland Yard randomly selects codenames and the choice of the word "chalaque" for Obama's trip has raised eyebrows.
Obama will be in Britain May 24-26.
The word "chalaque" is used to describe someone who is cheeky, sharp, crafty and too clever for his or her own good, the media report said.
It's not the only codename that has come into focus. The US Secret Service had chosen "Rawhide" for Ronald Reagan's period in the White House.
