nothing changes in this city rather worsens but renaming goes on.... playing in the hands of politicians
Lohar Chawl is a famous old name and a landmark. But one can go for a renaming . no issues. But as association asked for renaming did association ask for improved civic amenities, freeing traffic, more parking and so many daily irritants and did u get any of these. BMC elections r arriving and all dirty politicians r trying to woo voters on silly / non issues.
Demand actions on important issues and no need to hold function on renaming , nothing achieved.
Being a electrical market develop some rare fountain/ circle/ on the lines of Disney ( but on a small island as land is scarce there) so many more tourist / shoppers visit market and it becomes popular by achieving / contributing something and not by just renaming where nothing changes and politicians use this as there campaign platform.
I think most of the dealers had been to Singapore / China etc ( I had been to Singapore with other electrical market dealers in 1984 thru Orient fans) and must be knowing that we r 50 years behind all these countries. But we as fools only ask for renaming and get happy. I willl come to take photo of same chowk which will be full of Paan spits in a month .
