What’s in a Name?!? ‘Bengaluru’!?! The curious case (name) of ‘Bengaluru’ <- Bangalore


What’s in a name?!?
The curious case of ‘Bengaluru’ <- Bangalore.
While ‘Chennai’ and ‘Mumbai’ – formerly British-time names ‘Madras’ and ‘Bombay’ respectively, in fact state names. Bengaluru – late established – later than Madras and Bombay. Mysore / Mysuru used to be the state and so the capital. (change in names) were in vogue fast enough, Bangalore to Bengaluru has not been just yet…
