‘Only’ Bengal hit out of the park, Paschimbanga for a new name!?

All the frenzy regarding the flashy only Bengal campaign was hit by massive surprise as the name got changed to a very Bengali version of West Bengal, Paschimbanga Like many other Bengalis and citizens of the state, I am very unhappy with this change. Not only will this be poor substitute for the name ‘Bengal’, but it will also be difficult to pronounce for Indian non-Bengalis, leave alone foreigners. Also the purpose of it moving up the list in the names of states will get little boost by this.
