Google results for Mohtarma BhuttoGoogle has picked up benazirbhutto.org’s condolence page in less than an hour after her death. I was trying to find the meaning of a word used as a prefix to her name – “Mohtarma” used repeatedly by a London spokesman on Sky News. He sounded as if he was saying “Mutarma Bannerjee Bhutto” which made no sense, so I had to look it up. While doing so, I noticed that Google has picked up her condolence book in less than an hour as the second main result for the phrase “mohtarma bhutto”. I am still none the wiser about the word as it is not used in India to my knowledge, but it would be a respectful prefix.
