Now, this is all these IDIOTS of politicians can end up doing!! Nothing constructive except jingoism!
For heaven’s sake Bangalore is a brand! No corporate house in its right mind plays with its No. 1 brands.. except these dimwit Indian politicians!
If Bombay could become Mumbai, Madras Chennai and Calcutta Kolkata, could the country’s IT hub Bangalore lag behind? Bangalore in Anglicised form will be known as Bengaluru as pronounced in Kannada.
Karnataka Chief Minister N Dharam Singh told reporters here today that he had asked the chief secretary to take steps for renaming Bangalore.
He said that Kannadigas were calling it as Bengaluru but taking an Anglicised form and it became Bangalore. Singh recalled that a suggestion to call the city as Bengaluru had emanated at a meeting of prominent Kannada litterateurs he had called recently to seek their views on celebrating the golden jubilee of the formation of Karnataka.
He also said he would make a plea to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to take steps to accord the status of a classical language to Kannada.
