The Town of Boiled Beans

Another indian city’s name bites the dust.

India — world’s 2ndlargest economy in the future, changes the name of yet another of its cities again. Say bye to the global capital of Bangalore and hi to Bengalaru or “town of boiled beans”.

From Madras to Chennai, Bombay to Mumbai, Calbutta to Kolkata, we should be braced for a tsunami of name changes from this country.
