Renaming does not make sense
John F Williams | 16 Nov 2011

The bright idea of renaming is not logical !

WHAT'S THE big idea in renaming a state? It has become a common trend for a state to change its name. Fail to understand the specific / technical reason thereof.

Indian Airlines changed over to Indian in quite understood since some one at the Ministry/ Airlines level had a personal interest in the form of a favour  of getting Contract for Printing the Tickets, Boarding Cards, Letter heads/ Visiting Cards, etc, painting of Hoardings, ladders, Aircrafts, etc., at All India level involving crores and crore, but ….it still known / called as Indian Airlines by everyone in talk.

In what way  renaming of  Calcutta  to Kolkata, Bangalore to Bangaluru and Orissa to Odisha, ….benefical. Not understood. Which Class is benefited with this change? Is it  with certain administrative or political back ground? Can any Hon’ble Reader enlighten  on the subject, please!
