    Bangalore's name change is official now

    It is now official. With effect from November 1 2006, the word Bangalore will cease to exist in all official correspondence.

    The question though is if it be Bengaluru or Bengalooru? Is the use of 'u' the clincher? I think they should just call it TCFKAB, i.e. The City Formerly Known As Bangalore.

    The process will take some time. Will other places in Karnataka also be subject to this exercise? Is this decision as culturally significant as it is made out to be? Basically, do you care a f@(k? Sorry for the usage of the profanity, but I really think this is a ridiculous decision.

    Does this name change mean some other city in India can change its name to Bangalore and attract investment? Or does this name change mean Bangalore Bengaluru Bengalooru Bengalooroo TCFKAB will get investment worth trillions of dollars and be transformed into Singapore within the space of a decade?
