Sourav Ghosh Khan on Shivaji Maharaj
Sourav Ghosh in his 3-years old video performed at Tuning Fork, Mumbai, made witty remarks on Shivaji Maharaj. Talking about the background of the video, Sourav was talking about airports in Mumbai which are domestic and international and both of them happen to be named after Shivaji Maharaj. There also happens to be a station named after the great king.
Sourav Ghosh comment on Shivaji Maharaj
“Why both the airports named Chhatrapati Shivaji? If one was named Shivaji and another Napolean, then no one would miss his friends’ wedding. Keep any other name of the airport. Like one ‘Shivaji airport’ and another ‘Not Shivaji Airport’. Works! 3rd airport ‘Maybe Shivaji Airport’. You guys have also kept the railway station (CSMT) after his name. Shivaji was a great warrior but I did not know he was also a travel enthusiast. You know what Maharashtra govt. is now doing to solve this confusion is that they are naming the international airport ‘Maharaja Shivaji’. One Shivajoi and another Maharaja Shivaji airport. As if this will solve a confusion. I think more than passengers, even pilots would get confused”
