After solving the city’s infrastructure problems, Bangalore’s city managers have decided to return it to its days of pre-colonial glory. Following in the footsteps of Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata, they have decided to change the name of the city back to the ‘original,’ which is nothing but the name of the city in Kannada. So, move over Bangalore, come on in Bengaluru!
I wonder what Bangaloreans will now call themselves. As for those who have been bangalored, hereafter, they’ll be referred to as having been bengalurued. Aargh!
A bit of info on the name Bengaluru is here.
