Talk:Kolkata/to do

Name

After the recent round of voting which lasted for two months, I have moved the Calcutta page to Kolkata. Due to a known software bug, I had to manually merge the contents of the talk page. Results of the voting: Kolkata: 40 Calcutta: 30

Building and organisation nomenclature

Was Calcutta High Court renamed to Kolkata High Court after the city's English name was changed? There was a recent edit that changed Calcutta High Court to Kolkata High Court but I don't believe this has been done yet officially. Could somebody shed light on this?

Its Calcutta High Court. Change of name does not necessarily means that institutions change their name.  =Nichalp (talk • contribs)= 08:50, May 10, 2005 (UTC)
That's what I had thought. I have changed back one instance in the article. -- Urnonav 06:56, 16 May 2005 (UTC)


The use of "bastardization" in this article is very POV. A more proper term that is NPOV is simply "transliteration". The British colonials/invaders weren't purposely respelling the Bengali language terms and changing them... they simply were trying to render them in English language phonology. Major difference, and the article reads much more NPOV to drop the allegatory tone of using "bastardization". If someone were "bastardizing" the term Bangla, then the result would have been something like Bae-Ni Ga-Lah or Ibn Gola or Ubi-England... One could perhaps argue that calico was a bastardization of Kolkata, but they'd be reading too much into what is simply an understandable linguistic change when two languages with very different phonological schemes come into contact. sturmde 9 Jun 2005

Main page needs summaries of separate articles

We need a brief on sections like history on the man page inspite of moving the history section into a separate page.
