(014) Why Not Bharat?

Rating: 2.8

Maharashtrians renamed
Bombay to 'Mumbai'
Tamilians renamed
Madras to 'Chennai'
Keralites renamed
Cochin to 'Kochi'
Bangalies renamed
Calcutta to 'Kolkata'
Kannadigas renamed
Bangalore to 'Bengaluru'

Sad, Nobody wants
INDIA to be renamed to
Pseudo-face of
Democracy and
Unity in diversity!

The 'preamble' of our constitution includes both names; INDIA & BHARAT. But we mostly use the word India and in thagt way u are very correct. We people should change. sathya narayana

Bharath maybe is yet To regain the courage Of the Boy king who Grew among lions And having become Slaves selling souls Even now ater Freedom Materialistic mercinaries We remain miming The show of fading cultures Running behind money Capitalism under screen Of democrcy we still Debate on pros and cons When all was written down Long before when Manu ruled Humanity prevailed and Bharathiay youth played In glee on Indies shores.
