Mumbai Sapphire? No Thanks
The BBC's reference to the "Mumbai" Stock Exchange is as disagreeable as it is inaccurate. The rendition of Bombay as "Mumbai" is mercifully repudiated both by that city's High Court and by its Stock Exchange. For the forces behind that and other such innovations are seriously nasty. "Al-BBC", say the neocons. Not a bit of it, if this is anything to go by. Rather, the BBC, Voice of the RSS and the BJP.
