C.P. Surendran is a loser


In a totally vacuous op-ed in ToI, he argues that since "India's future is in English", change of city names (such as from Bangalore to Bengaluru) is terrible. The language is so ballistic that you can imagine him disturbed and angry. So disturbed and angry, in fact, that he lets this sentence slip into his argument:

Today's young do not give a damn what their city is called.

Oops!

    Thanks, Acharya, for the link. Surendran seems to have gone completely berserk in this one.
