Dadar Station name may change to “Chaityabhoomi”. Would you like it?


Hello Respected Readers, I hope you are aware that some politics talk is going on to change the name of Dadar to “Chaityabhoomi”.

Just few days back in May, even Mr. Raj Thackeray from MNS also stated that he is also against this.

Don’t you think this may create huge problems for various companies, organization and everyone to change their Companies Addresses, Banners, Prints and everything. This may create a big problem for everyone. I just wondering, in this modern world where everyone wants to do micro things. So changing the name from Dadar Station to Chaityabhoomi, how far it is good for the community.

I would also like to post here some of the Comments on this Topic from one of Big Portals.

  1. if victoria station name was changed as chatrapati shivaji terminals kurla was renamed tilak terminals. sion station was changed shiv then why you people are aganist rename of dadar station as chaittybhoomi. there is no historical reference of dadar name. the meaning of dadar is stair case not any other. the great liberator of oppressed bahujan people Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar lived at dadar hindu colony and his last ceremony performed at dadar chopatty. crore of his follower gathered at chaittybhoomi on 6th december every year to pay tribute him. so dadar is popular venue for chaittybhoomi . and it is reconized over the world by the name of dr babasaheb ambedkar. if the people are aganist the renaming of dadar station the it is due to castist motive

    • श्री. दिनेश कांबळे,
      माझ्यासारखीच आपली देखील मातृभाषा मराठीच असणार हे गृहीत धरून मी हे पत्र मराठी भाषेत लिहावयास घेतले आहे. मला आशा आहे की ह्याला तुमचा आक्षेप नसावा.

      मी जन्मत: दादर मध्ये राहिले आहे. व वडिलांची जात म्हटली तर मी जातीने भंडारी आहे.
      माझ्या आईचे वडील हे बाबासाहेब आंबेडकर ह्यांचे जवळचे सहकारी होते. व सिद्धार्थ कॉलेजची स्थापना करण्यात त्यांचे फार मोठे योगदान होते.
      मला बाबासाहेब आंबेडकरांच्या कार्याविषयी अभिमान आहे. अत्यंत प्रतिकूल परिस्थितीतून बाहेर पडून त्यांनी जे कार्य केले ते मला अचंबित करते. त्यांचा आदर्श ठेवून जर प्रत्येक नागरिकाने प्रयत्न केला तर माझ्या भारताचे चित्र किती सुरेख होईल…असे मला वाटते.

      दादरची रहिवासी म्हणून मला जे दु:ख होते ते त्याच्या नावाकडे बघून नव्हे तर तेथील अस्वच्छता बघून.
      मला सांगा आपले दादर स्वच्छ ठेवण्यासाठी आपण आपली शक्ती व वेळ का वापरू नये ?
      आपण, आपल्यातील प्रत्येकजण, आपले पुढारी ह्यासाठी का नाही काही प्रयत्न करीत ?
      त्यातून काहीतरी विधायक काम नाही का होणार ?

      हा माझा विचार आहे…आणि मला आशा आहे की त्यातील भावना तुमच्यापर्यंत नक्की पोचतील…

  2. Dear Dinesh,

    I truly respect your and all Indians honor towards Dr, Babasaheb Ambedkar. The great work he had done for the benefits and welfare of India and whole world.

    Changing the name would not be bad if it is just in interest of Tribute to him but problem is when this becomes the topic of Political issues and they use it for their sake of interest and benefits to their parties. So if we really want to some good changes we should all stand and demand for the same. Anna Hazare is live example for this.

    Lets stand and work for the welfare of India.

  3. hey indiavalley!

    I am just confused with this. Can you plz explain what makes you think that this is a ” Topic of Political Issues” . Actually if you analyse the topic..you will Probably understand that by merely opposing the name change process ,you guys are making it as a “Topic of Political issues “.
    I simply dont understand how people get so much time to get into unnecessary debates. Is it really necessary to oppose it???? i mean arent u messing it up…its plain simple if u let it go!!!Afterall this is not the first time when a station’s name is being changed .

    hey Anagha!!!

    English is an International language ..so lets talk in english!!!
    I just think your train was derailed . The topic is not ” clean Dadar” here.
    and i respect you for considering the unhygenic condition of the station…but sweety that is condition of the whole country!!

    • Dear Pranali,

      First of all let me appreciate you as well because of your keen interest in this Blog Post. If you read my post properly, even I have also not fully opposed for this. We also like Dadar name as it is. I am Staying in Mumbai since last 45 years so we know the Love and Likes for Dadar. The whole idea for writing the post was on the basis of some Political talks going on earlier to change the name. I believe that this is not going to happens for at least next 15 to 20 years. I have conveyed my feelings through the Blog. I agree with you that this is not a “Topic of Political Issues” and we have to let it go. Indian government often change the name of many station nowadays and its all taken care for the welfare of the masses. So looking at all we should work for the community and help the community thats what I believe.

      Thanks
