IT HAPPENS ONLY IN INDIA
Yes, William Shakespeare has been proved wrong. (What’s in a name?)
There is a lot in a name...in fact it is only in a name...read for yourself.
On this 15th Aug, PM announced;
A new scheme for slum dwellers-Rajiv Gandhi Awas Yojna.
A new solar mission named after Jawaharlal Nehru.
Prabhu Chawla, recently, wrote an article correctly stating ,something on the lines, that the first timer to the capital -Delhi will land at Indira Gandhi airport and while driving down town he will pass through Jawaharlal Nehru Marg via Jawaharlal Nehru University, Nehru Stadium, Nehru Yuva Kendra, Nehru Place, Nehru Enclave, Nehru Nagar, Nehru Park, and then turn left towards Indira Chowk via Indira Colony, Indira Enclave, Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium, Indira Kala Kendra, Indira Gandhi Centre for Arts, ,Indira Gandhi Open University ,Indira Gandhi Tennis Stadium then turn right towards Rajiv Chowk, via Rajiv Colony, Rajiv Gandhi Bhawan, and finally to Rajiv Gandhi Road before reaching his destination for Rajiv Gandhi awards function.(my apologies as I am aware only of these names, if I missed any, please forgive me)
These are some of the renamed places in Delhi only. May be, if, one was to compile a list on all India basis--------we may need a directory as big as the MTNL has.
I am not mentioning the various FILMS-SPORTS-BRAVERY-ETC, awards named after MANNIYA Rajiv Gandhiji.
I am also not mentioning a number of national programmes named after, Jawahar Lal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi.
Those who said ‘What is in a name”, please raise your hands. (Since we are not capable of raising our voice)
let us CHANGE INDIA for INDIA OF TOMORROW.
