Yes, bengaluru sounds very authentic :D !!!

The above comment disgusts me, Not only am I a kannadiga but a proud Indian and a Newzealander. Your narrow mind is a projection of what India needs to move away from.

We need unity, here in India and for our world and we should be thinking of ways to overcome our worst performances.

Madras Rocks !!! and any other city in our awesome EARTH

local politicians dont have better things to do for the people residing in their cities, rather than give their a city a useless personal touch by changing the name...................... bombay calcutta , bangalore sounds alright yet these local idiots changed the name

"Bengaluru"
this is a good move,
all cities, states, country should rename according to their language,.INDIA as BHARATH also..,
Atleast by pronouncing their name properly we need to salute everyone's culture, tradition.

fools, both the f***ing kanadigas and tamilians, wasting time in a renaming spree. People dance to these short sighted politicians have no other job but to incite mass to become more narrow minded about their so called "Language" and State.

TO hell with these idiotic and ir-relevent attitudes of 21st century.
