Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Marg

Now this calls for a reality check survey which i conducted on this name -where is Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Marg?.Answers were as expected more than 70%of the people were unaware of it's existence in south bombay and some expressions were like -what?,where?,when?rhetorically almost everything except the answer.

Early in the morning with birds flying fearless in the sky i stopped to cross the road opposite Savitri Bai Phule girls hostel ,due to my cautious nature i stopped till the signal wasn't red for the vehicles to hault and for me to walk safe like a queen on the road.I once again came across the board notifying the NSCB Marg i thought for a moment and moved ahead thinking it was the lane name which connects to the charni road bridge to Thakur Dwaar.

After a month in a general talk with a history scholar i co-incidentally asked about it and i was astonished to know that Marine Drive on papers is called as The Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Marg.But the name is limited only on paper as it's usage causually is NIL.The fact is ,not even 0.5% people use this name to adress marine Drive.
