Let's rename Sansar to "SansaVr" and say the V is silent if the media asks. How about it, Linden Lab?

Curious - Since the very first second I heard that name long time ago - It immediately sounded Indian, even without knowing what it meant

If this encourages a whole lot of people from India to try it out - I'd possibly be MORE interested in moving there over SL.

SL is kind of caught in a weird Baby-Boomer-Mid-30s angle... all the things and cultural references are very 1980s and white.

I'd love to see something that was more worldly relevant.

Carlos: Linden Lab original staff were very fond of referencing indian gods for their server grids. The Hindus deeply explored the concept of avatars (embodiments of divinity) and Maya (the concept of illusion, not the software that creates 3d illusions xD ), so why wouldn't a world built into realness mainly on illusory things not pay homage to that concept with choosing names from Indian pantheon?
