My grandmother missed the Raj. Such wonderful memories. Such wonderful servants.

No one is going to take away her memories - because that's what they were - memories - and that's where they should stay. We've moved on.

If you change the name, you don't remove the childhood memories.
I don't lose sleep over the fact that a childhood 'Marathon' chocolate bar in the U.K. changed it's name to 'Snickers'. It's still the same chocolate bar.
The memories are in the taste, not the name. Kids don't care about the name - unless it has other connotations of course...
Tom,

Perhaps you've moved on but many Swiss haven't and they don't understand the debate about this. I've had this discussion with many locals and most look at it as a storm in a teacup.
