Hello

The capital city of a state called Kerala in India is Thiruvananthapuram. This
used to be called as Trivandrum earlier. I see that both these names are listed
and both has a sizable number of members. To a travelller, it might look as two
different cities and he might miss out on people who can help him. It will be
good if we can have these two unified as "Thiruvananthapuram / Trivandrum" as i
see a lot of websites and guide books still using both the names. Both these
names are used by the locals and the local government bodies :(

Thanks
Joe

thanks a lot for the info. very appreciated.  next May, i'm planning to visit
india and wishing to visit Trivandrum too. I find that there is direct budget
flight from Kuala Lumpur to Trivandrum. seems so good to me. But, i also want to
visit Kolkata for some reasons. I need your advice for this plan. is it too far
to go overland from Trivandrum to Kolkata? i really want to "feel" india as
local people feel by using public transportation like train or bus. looking
forward to hearing from you.

thank a lot.
