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…
(to put more facts and observation)
