Google India Renames Mumbai to Bombay [Hey Shiv Sena?]

Google is redefining India’s geography – earlier gifted Arunachal Pradesh to China, PoK to Pakistan and has now renamed Mumbai to Bombay. The difference is spotted only on mobile version of Google products, i.e. maps and latitude.


Interestingly, this has been happening for the last 2 weeks – pretty much confirms that Shiv Sena activists aren’t searching for locations on Google services.
