What's in a Name?

There was an interesting news report in DNA yesterday, according to which, "The Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) undertaking plans to have bus-stops in Mumbai named after you, at a stiff price, of course."

The right to name a particular bus stop will go to the highest bidder at an auction which will be held for the purpose.

This proposal, if passed, promises to open up some very interesting possibilities.

Local leaders in political parties will be eager to grab the rights to bus stops in their area- either to name them after themselves, or after their political bosses.

If a political party worker buys the rights to a particular bus stop, names it after a leader and then switches parties- then of course he will have to rename it!

This is a very interesting proposal.

There are some very interesting comments on the original post in Manju's blog. I'd suggest you head straight to view it. A click on the title of this post above will take you there.
