Friends, particularly Indian nationals, help me please: is #DeveloperDayBengalaru a better tag than #DeveloperDayBangalore? Is it more respectful to use the former? Not sure of the cultural baggage of the anglicized version of the city name.

One thought on “Cultural Sensitivity Help”

  1. Depends on if one’s conservative (not necessarily politically). I’d go with Bengaluru, because it’s their name, they get to choose how to say and spell it.
