After Gurugram, Calls To Change The Name Of Shimla Because Of Religious Connect

Published on 15 April, 2016 at 7:51 pm By

So Gurgaon is now Gurugram. Of course, social media broke into peals of laughter when the Haryana government announced this. But those who love changing names, it appears, don’t give a damn.

So now we have this report which claims that the VHP wants the Himachal Pradesh government to change the name of Simla to…ahem…Shyamla.

The report claims that VHP’s organising secretary Manoj Kumar has asked HP Governor Acharya Devvrat to discuss the matter with the Congress-led government in the state.

Why this change?

While the Haryana government went deep into Mahabharata and found Dronacharya’s connection to Gurgaon Gurugram, Shimla is believed to have been named after a presiding deity ‘Shyamala Devi’ – an incarnation of Goddess Kali.

But the city became what it is today because of the British. They made this place their summer capital, and everything in this city – the lanes and buildings – still carry a strong link to the time of the Raj.
