I've been in Bangalore all my life. But somehow, the incongruity of a thoroughfare being named -'Avenue Road' never struck me until I read this. Very,very strange.
The institution in which I study-'University Visweshvaraya College of Engineering' is
another good example. God knows why it was named so.
Has anybody noticed similar oddness in any of the vernacular names for roads/institutions. Or are these instances merely indicative of the inability of the colonised people to wield the English language with finesse?
