I asked the question Mnemonic for the planets in Indian English about back in 2020. The question has been closed as opinion-based after less than 2 years. However, I need to ask something about this "elegant mother" and Indians. So, how can I edit my question?
I'm not sure you can rescue it.English isn't algebra. There likely is no rationale for why IndE speakers use X while BrE/AmE speakers use Y beyond "a series of accidents of history. To hazard a guess, at the time IndE branched off, proper, from BrE, the BrE phrase (at the time) might have been "elegant", but I believe that's a close to a definitive answer (aka my guess) as you can get.– Dan BronMar 1, 2022 at 18:54
Reframe as a phrase-origin question
I don't know what type of answer you were expecting, but the answer you got (and accepted) explained the origin of that particular wording. Tracing the origin of a phrase is answered by facts (citations) and reveals as much as can be known about why things happened.
