Check out How Gurgaon’s New Name Gurugram Sent the Internet into a Tizzy

On Tuesday evening, the Haryana government raised quite a few eyebrows with its announcement over Gurgaon’s new name. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, Gurgaon is now officially going to be called Gurugram. In related news, Mewat district is being renamed Nuh for reasons unknown.
