Renaming the famous stretch after Naushad Ali hasn't gone down well with
MUMBAI: A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet. For the
Bard, yes, but not for the residents of Carter Road, who are peeved that
the famous stretch has been renamed after the late composer Naushad Ali,
its most well-known resident.
Residents are angry that the plan to rename Carter Road as Sangeet
Samrat Naushad Ali Road was mooted by corporator Kavita Rodricks without
consulting them. The change of name came into effect on Monday, May
5--the death anniversary of the legendary musician--after Rodricks'
proposal was passed by a BMC standing committee.
