Infantry Road renamed

Infantry Road has been renamed Bhagwan Mahaveer Road by the city authorities. It remains to be seen if the usage will actually change. Infantry Road is one of a set of roads whose name head back to the times when Bangalore was a British Cantonment. The other roads are Artillery Road, Brigade Road and Cavalry Road (now K. Kamaraj Road). The Residency Road and Richmond Road were renamed Field Marshal Cariappa Road and General Thimmaiah Road respectively but are rarely referred to by those names.
