Re: my laptop got stolen...

So the Metro Stations have actually got people to use these names.

It was Mani Shankar's bright idea to name Connaught Circus as Indira Chowk and Connaught Place as Rajiv Chowk (Son enclosed inside Mother) way back in early 90s. One of the objections raised was "How can you call circular places as Chowks?"

In my one year stay in Dillika in later half of 90s, no one ever used these names. They were just found on some sign boards (more still showed Connaught place)
