Raj thackeray has tried to dominate the seen of Indian politics for quite long now. He has done something, which was unimaginable in the wildest of my dreams. Dividing people by region has been his political formula and me being a resident of Delhi is particularly hurt by his incorrect methods.
This time it was the beting up of students from Bihar and UP who had come to give a Railway exam in Mumbai. MNS (Maharashtriya Nav Nirman Sena) supporters beat them up and they were forced to run away. When I think of this incident only one phrase comes to my mind, “What the fuck!”
It wasn’t a long time back when I came to know of this kind of politics happening in Mahrashtra. There is a bigger such scandal happening unknown to many. One of friends shared his experience of a viva, while he was in his second year, doing engineering from pune. Just as the viva began, the examiner asked him one question, “Maratha Sanga” . He replied no, I am not a Mahrashtriyan, I am from Haryana. That was the end of his viva. He knew for sure that he would not be getting good marks in this paper. He was later shocked to learn that he had failed in the test. Imagine a person clearing theiry exam and failing in practicals. It was considered impossible in my university unless you were caught cheating.
Raj’s demand for more jobs on Jet Airways for the Maharashtriyan people were again a reminder of that. To be honest, why does god ever produce such creatures who are hell bent on dividing people on the basis of demography and religion. Secondly why don’t the Maharshtriyans protest. Wouldn’t they feel bad a man literally begging on their behalf. What would shivaji Rao think when he’d see his people potrayed as incompetent bastards resorting to killing and terrorizing people for their vested interests. Sad totally sad.
Such instances some times make me feel that why was I born in such a country. It also makes me realize a fact that the maximum heroes are Indian, just because a lotus is only found in a dirty pond.
