Mr. Raj Thackeray was in news. It was obvious he doesn’t like lock ups or jails. But what is surprising is his lawyer’s name who was in the limelight most the time, Mr. Akhilesh Chube. What a North Indian sounding name! Or probably when one’s *ss is truly in danger of being grilled, North, South, East or West Indians don’t matter. Vageesh Saraswat, the MNS vice-president is also from Aligarh, probably a north Indian town. Few weeks ago Mr. Raj Thackeray had organized a computer software course for Maharashtrian Youths. The head instructor was Saurabh Mishra.
But Manish Chauhan has written a pretty interesting account on this ongoing sub nationalism plaguing modern metrosexual Indians. His target is Shahrukh Khan. 🙂
Shahrukh Khan is in trouble. He calls himself a Delhi boy, which he duly is, but Bal Thackray insists now he is not because Mumbai has given him wealth and fame. Though at the same time, he also insists that Sonia Gandhi is still an Italian, a Videshi.
Shahrukh must be disoriented by now about his existence. Myself sailing on the same damn boat. Join the notorious club. Who knows, someone might club us all.
I repeat, Bal Thackray insists since it is Mumbai and Maharashtra which has given him wealth and fame so why does he harp about being a Delhi boy.
As if, as soon as he touched Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, or shall I say Bhusawal, almost magically, someone started giving him all his wealth – to make him rich, and concurrently, someone else (or the same guy perhaps) started calling his name on AIR, to make him famous.
Applying the theory of mathematical induction (though I never came across a bigger fraudulent theory), every one making money or name in Maharashtra started doing in the same manner. Well, not every body, though. Some of them were beaten black and blue right on landing at the Kalyan & Kurla station. However, rest get it for free, by almost doing nothing.
It may also be that all the movie audience of Shahrukh Khan is from Mumbai and Maharashtra only. Rest of India and world are not counted. It is already known that he dances at the ceremonies of Netas to earn quick bucks. So this settles it.
Mahindra and Mahindra, Telco, Bajaj sell all their vehicles only in Mumbai and rest of Maharashtra. So those workers who come here and work should also pay their homage and respect for their bread and butter, and to their very existence, only to Maharashtra.
Had there been no Maharashtra, who would have created these vehicles and much worse, who would have bought them, isn’t it ? Anyway it is not their work which is bringing them money. They are being paid only for the fact that they have entered Maharashtra.
It is God’s will that they were born to move into Maharashtra in future. Was this not tobe, may be God would have cancelled the order. That’s why, my dear Shahrukh, you ain’t no Delhi boy. You were desitined to come here, and that’s why you were concieved (or else it would have been someone else in your place). You are now Mee-Mumbai-Maharashtra boy.
Now let us all say in chorus – Jai Maharashtra!
