Technically, this post shouldn't be part of the "Indian English?" series. But, it does have some interesting spellings of places in India, so I decided it should be included.
For example, "Cannanure" is usually "Cannanore". Now it's "Kannur", the way we say it in the local language. Same with "Coimbature", which is usually "Coimbatore", now "Kovai". Don't know if it's always been that way in the local language, though.
The biggest blunder seems to be "Mombay". Huh?
