Gramted, this is the state government’s prerogative, but does this mean all other villages and towns in India bearing a similar gaon suffix will be grammed down our throats?
In this, only the bold part seems weird.
If anything, it’s the grams in India that should have been changed to gaons (as in Sevagram to Sevagaon), although many a lentil would have wondered what comes next. That would have been mean to the bean. Wouldn’t Greengram, Horsegram, and Bengalgram panic?
