Mumbai is bad: How about Rahulbay, Nehrauli, Gandhistan?

Bombay was renamed Mumbai in 1996 by a non-Congres government. Thirteen years later, that decision is still being milked to death politically by some sections of the media with a barely concealed motive.

The same lot is also extremely troubled when Mayawati constructs dalit memorials but inexplicably loses its voice when the Congress proposes a Rs 350 crore Shivaji Memorial and names the Sea Link after Rajiv Gandhi. It also has nothing to say when full and half-page ads are put out in leading dailies on Rajiv Gandhi's birthday. What about the 450 government activities named after Nehru, Indira and Rajiv? Or the naming of numerous prime landmarks in Delhi after them?

If these guys have their way, Delhi will surely be renamed 'Nehrauli' and India 'Gandhistan'. Bombay? How about 'Rahulbay' after a few years?

Yes, that will definitely happen in a few years - and what Congress will say in reply is, 'What can we do, if somebody wants to honour our great leaders - atleast they are not doing it themselves'!

You are right. That will be the explanation. And these champions of Bombay will be standing in line applauding...

@ BK Chowla- it will settle down after the election results. However the hatred born of this type of politics always lingers on- unfortunately for India.

That is the tragedy...
