Renamed "Trump Village" loses its charm after 10 days


The residents of the Manora Village which is situated in Mewat district of Haryana claim that their village is losing its identity due to another village with the same near Hodal, in the same district about 30 kilometres away.

However, nobody questioned the sudden change in the name of the village, which came just a few days before Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the US on June 25-26, which saw a lot of bonhomie between the Indian PM and the US President. A new signboard was put up declaring "Welcome to Trump Village".

As of now, the name of the village is Trump.

The change, however, was shortlived.

Perhaps appropriately given the nature of Trump's controversial administration, the signboard was removed because it was found that the rules for changing a village name had not been followed.

"Permission was not sought before changing the name. As per the rulebook, this can not be done", says Mani Ram Sharma, Deputy Commissioner, Nuh. The residents of the village wish to continue with the same name as it gives them a new and unique identity. "Till about a month ago, we would go to the fields to relieve ourselves", he says.

But that changed, with the change in name. Marora was apparently "baptised" as Trump village during a function hosted by the NGO, Sulabh International Social Service Organisation.

For now, the village has returned to its old name. The report also states that Sulabh International has written to chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar seeking approval for the name change. Mani Ram Sharma, the Deputy Commissioner of Nuh told Indian Express (IE) that his department did not receive a written permission regarding the name change and it can not be done directly as per law. But if the Collector says so, he must be right...

"If every businessman and NRI decides to adopt a village in India, we can see a turnaround". The villagers have some new development goals now. "I hope we start getting regular electricity supply". Currently, they get eight hours a day. The young population of the village is happy seeing the name change as this will make their hometown appear on Google Maps. Meanwhile, Abdul Hai, a Class 10 student, is ready with his homework.

In June, Marora, a nondescript village in Haryana, got a lot of media attention after it was rechristened as Trump village, after Donald Trump, the President of the United States.
