Why do places have names? Can places be referred to without names? Who names territories? What kind of knowledge do names contain? How durable are place names? What are the processes that have shaped the names on the canvas of India? What changes have place names seen in India? What value should be given to place names? Based on a study of the names of India's states and union territories, this research explores the above questions.
