People in Meghalaya have a special craze for interesting and controversial names, and the state elections are proof enough.
The 345 contestants include Frankenstein Momin, Billykid Sangma, Field Marshal Mawphniang and Romeo Rani. Some of them like Kenedy Marak, Kennedy Cornelius Khyriem and Jhim Carter Sangma, hope for the electoral success of their namesake American presidents.
And then, hold your breath, there is Hitler !
This father of three has won three elections to the assembly with no controversy over being his in (famous) name. His father had developed enough fascination with Great Britain's enemy to name him Adolf Lu Hitler. His name has not stopped him from travelling all over the world, including to the USA and Germany.
