Removing subjective, unsourced comments.[edit]

This page has a lot of subjective comments that don't seem to be sourced:

  • Saying the Bombay was renamed to its original name, Mumbai, is controversial. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mumbai#City_name. There's not a consensus that the city's English name had been Mumbai prior to the late 20th century renaming. Since discussing that controversy is not relevant here, I'd propose changing the article to simply say that the city was renamed to Mumbai.
  • The discussion about Mumbaikars being rude is a little off topic. And, I'm not sure that I'd consider Reader's Digest authoritative enough to be a source for this sort of discussion. (It's not considered scholarly.) Further, the subjective comments about the Reader's Digest article appear to be original work, not sourced from anywhere. This page is not the appropriate place to discuss how different cultures view smiling, etc. I'd propose removing the whole paragraph.
