More name changes

The Times of India reports that Jabalpur is being renamed Jabalipuram, and that the MP government is "mulling renaming Bhopal to Bhojpal and Indore to Indur." Immense silliness.

And when they all get struck by the numerological bug sweeping through our pop culture, Bhojpal will become Bhojjpall and Indur will become Iinduur.

It is clearly the signboard makers' lobby that is getting these changes made. Who else benefits?
