Naam mein kya rakha hai bhai!

A couple of days earlier Shiv Sena's student's wing, Bharatiya Vidyarthi Sena (BVS), targeted establishments that still have Bombay in their names, including the city's prestigious school, Bombay Scottish, a Bombay Dyeing showroom and offices of The Times of India, whose city supplement is called Bombay Times.

Now, the list also includes Shiv Sena's demand to remove Bombay from Bombay Stock Exchange.
Every party wants some fancy issues rather than solving some existing serious ones. I dont want to take a political stance here, my views are completely objective. On one side Mr. Raj Thackeray and his followers try to be in limelight by targeting Amitabh Bachchan. And now Shiv Sena is trying to cook some irrelevant issue of Bombay versus Mumbai. How are the farmers of Maharashtra going to be benefited out of this ? Or is it going to solve the power problem of the state?

Bombay Dyeing is a corporate entity, a company registered under Company Act 1956. Now, why should a company change its name, just because of change in the name of the city, whose name matches with part of its name? Two years hence, politicians in UP or Bihar may not allow the company to open its stores there, just because it doesnt say "Patna Dyening" or "Lucknow Dyeing". It really sounds funny. I wonder what the advisors to the politicians do?
BSE has created a brand for itself over a period of time. Now it is a globally recognised name. What's the point in changing the names?

My serious suggestion: Politicians should focus on issues like primary education, good health and medical facilities, sufficient power, infrastructure, farmers and farmer loans problem and also check the crime in the state.

    these politicians have no other work than to waste our money and make an issue out of no-issue.
