“Too much sanity may be madness.”
– Miguel de Cervantes
Yours truly has no work for the day n he feels scared about it….let me tell you its not so great feeling as its used to be….considering the turbulance IT industry is going through in India.
Well that gave me a chance to write this post on Mr. Raj thakre ….its been long time i wanted to write about the men ….
Well i dont remember exactly when i first saw him but wenever it was i knew he got the potential to make it BIG and he is the really successor of Mr. Bal Keshav thakre…and in some way or other i am proved right.He made it big but by easiest way possible or should i say the cheapest one….
Cut to :
Two years back Mr.Raj launched his party called Maharashtra Navnirman Sena(MNS) …by name it self it was obvious that they dont want to move beyond maharashtra..so there agenda was to focus on mahrashtras navnirman(progress) … i remember him giving atmost prefence to progress ,he talked about development and there was nothing called marathi manoos in his speech …he wanted development..and i was delighted bcoz i knew he had it in him and was on right track but destiny had something different in store for him or say for all of us….his party won very few seats in next Municipal Corporations inspite of great expectations…and development idea straight went to the dust-bin.
Back to :
March 2008, Well i saw Mr in some diffrent mood he was talking about how poorely marathi manoos are treated in there own state they dont have job because alleged bhaiyas(migrrants from UP and Bihari) took away there job ..but he didnt say a word about the miggrants like : gujjus nad marawaris (mind you i belong to the same community) who also have prominent presence in Mumbai and Maharashtra; I am not sure why he didnt pick us..may be bcoz marwaris and gujju are supposedly on wealthier side..
Violance…in the name of public outcry….and it changed lods of thing…….
MNS became a front page party overnight,And our wonderful media supported the good cause by fuelling the fire,by running N number of stories with lowest level of information.
Wat make me SAD :
Well its sad that a good guy went a wrong path.I known many marathi people and they dont see anything wrong in people coming from north indian states or any other part of india …There have been people in past who talked about dividing people on cast, religion,race and wat not….but who cares they dont bother me…wat really hurts me is i see a change in perception of people they have forced themselves to feel the pinch….there is huge under current running ….and that two among educated people …you go to orkut or on net there are people who are supporting MNS stand just for the sack of it and they dont no about the party and i wonder if they care..it just they suddenly found a icon to look upto.I know atleats 3 people in my company who are MNS supporter but they dont no other much about it.
Whats his stand :
1. Give jobs to marathi people in public sector ,reservation in private sector jobs,latest is : give mhada flats only for marathi people .
-Well Mr. thackrey we are citizen of india and every indian has the right to move from one place to any other place india…y ur afraid of the compitition???..let it be whoever is the best will get selected…If you ask for the transperncy in the system then its fair.
And wat about the marathi people who are residing out of maharashtra wil you give them job security and house at you kohinoor mill property…that would be gesture men…seriously.
2.People should respect and learn the local language.
– People should respect the local language….it sound perfect …for that matter we should respect every language…..but LEARN it..u gotta be kidding…if my company transfer me for 2 years to karnataka do you think i will be able to learn kannada…not possible….u can learn bits or pieces but learning the language sounds like CRAP to mee…..
3.Change All shop sign board to marathi…change ‘BOMBAY’ to ‘MUMBAI’
-Nagres character in SR says…“hum hi badal gaye to pata kaise chalega ki khuch badala hai”(If we also change then how young gen will know that something has changed)….wat you want??… Bombay Exhibition Center to be called Mumbai Exhibition Center..infact they have already done that…but i wonder Bombay Scottish still has the same TAG …his son studies there…. ;)
-Bcoz no one knows wat is the next agenda that MNS have….i wonder even raj know abt it…
I am not giving refences to Mumbai attack or this post will go on n on….I wonder if my opinion count but i feel bad for MUMBAI …i have been here for past 24 years and i know its dying ….its dying bcoz thousands of new people coming from other parts of country and also from rest of maharashtra with a dream to make it BIG.Its a dream city …dont spoil it…I just wish in next election raj gets his answer from people of india….VOTE WISELY!!
till den… : )
PS : I want to know which “bhaiya” is still supplying milk to raj’s house…. :P
