Didi’s name change

October 22 2015

Dynamic chief minister of Bengal Mamata Banerjee, who advocates the slogan of “Ma, maati, manush” seems to be caught in the name quagmire. Mamata is in a hurry to change names, especially those of Kolkata’s roads, metro stations, flyovers and bridges. Thus, on the first navaratra, the people of Kolkata were surprised to see a full-page ad in all newspapers changing the name of the city’s longest flyover from “Parama” to just “Ma”. Clearly, Kolkata is going strong on the trend of daak (informal name you are addressed by) name and bhaalo (official) name.
