Vijay Manjrekar may have played a major role in making Shivaji Park a name synonymous with Mumbai's cricketing success, and with that, he also paved a path - literally, named after himself.

However, the Vijay Manjrekar Lane in Dadar has suddenly turned into Prampujya Jambhekar Maharaj Path - and no one knows when, how or why.

A report in Mid-Day even quotes local MNS corporator Sandip Deshpande as saying: "If there is need to change the name of a road or street, I have to move a proposal with the ward committee. I have not done it for this particular street."

Manjrekar scored 3208 Test runs for India in 55 matches, and the street near his family home at Portuguese Church was rightly named after the Mumbai legend, known to add to the city's ability to produce 'khadus' batsmen through the years.

Even when the Assistant Municipal Commissioner of the area Ramakant Biradar was asked about the name change, he said that no such decision was taken. 

What is more interesting is that there is already a street named Prampujya Jambhekar Maharaj Path, after the man who helped set up the popular Siddhivinayak Temple.

Vijay Manjrekar's son Sanjay didn't seem worried by the incident, saying that "the people who matter will respect and remember him (Vijay) anyway."
