I think Bzschombay will be a great name. the 'zsch' will be silent. Plus it gives the feel of an east european city.

*thinking of changing his nick to Bzig-G*

The reason is I satrted a thread Bombayites and it was changed to Mumbaites, I thought it was a sensetive issue for some.

I feel the spirit of Bombay cannot match the spirit of Mumbai, if you get my drift.

If people

If people can readily accept Chennai and Kolkatta which were the traditional names then whats the big deal to call Bombay by its original name Mumbai?

All the major news outlets in the world and even governments now accept it as Mumbai.

When Peking was renamed the world accepted it...

So what's wrong in calling Bombay as Mumbai??

This question has reached eCharcha very very late

My problem is that the Shiv Sena had changed the name to prove its point that Bombay is a part Maharashtra and for only Maharastrians (no offence) and not a part of India.

Belive me, Bombay changed completely after the bomb blasts and in many ways I miss the old Bombay and do not like the new changed Mumbai.
