'Station names irrelevant, better services crucial'

The names of railway stations in Mumbai have always had a unique identity. 

The recent controversy that resulted in the proposed Oshiwara station getting named as Ram Mandir station has spawned speculation that several other stations in the city could be in for a change in nomenclature.

Mumbai Live tracked down citizens to get their views on the issue. Would they really want Elphinstone Road to be renamed as Prabhadevi? And should the monorail station at Dadar east be turned into Vitthal Mandir station?

Mumbaikars shared their views and opinions on these and more. Do names make the city? Or what's in a name, as Shakespeare would ask?
