Other mammoth like ungli-ready cities of India have changed their name to their "original" names when they had perfectly normal names like Bombay, Madras, Calcutta and Bangalore.
No, the ungli-readies had to go with ridiculous pronunciations of those names and rename them Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkotta and Bengarurururururuluru or something.

Delhi is confident enough to let people call it what they want and logical enough to know that people who speak different languages will pronounce words differently.

Usage

South Indian Madrasi - Now that we have changed our name to Chennai they will stop calling us Madrasi! high five!!

Sassibarrapaa - Bengalarurururluruluru sounds so much more normal than Bangalore, right?

Dilli guy - Fucking idiots.
