    To be honest , it sounds as if the non marathis are ganging up against marathis if they call other cities as Kolkata and Chennai etc instead of Calcutta and Madras , and just call Mumbai as Bombay . It is more acceptable if people call all cities by their former names . But calling only Mumbai as Bombay while calling other cities by their changed names definitely sucks . This I am saying as a Marathi .

    The feeling that non Marathas are ganging up against Marathas is what exactly the bbc idiots wants.

    Btw who reads independent and how many columns are articles this guy writes, this is a joke.
