Jai Maharashtra

Just something nice I found:

Maharashtra provides the best IT education in the country.

Jai Maharashtra.


  1. Hi, I don't know your name, but thanks for putting up this blog. Following your link to Bachi Karkaria's article in the Times, I have written a note on her article and left it at their site. I am certain that they won't print it. Here's the draft:

    TIMES OF INDIA should win a prize for jingoism. And Bachi Karkaria should move to Bihar. I gather it's a much safer place. The Marathis are so primitive! And of course, she will find many 'angels' in Patna. I think, Ms. Karakaria, do think about shifting your base to Patna. And don't worry Ms. Karkaria, none of the avenging angels of Maharashtra will ever follow you there. Why, there is still a chance that Kannadigas will stream into Maharashtra, but thank God, they don't have to worry about Maharashtrians doing the same because they won't even allow Marathi Theatre buses into Belgaum! Ms. Karkaria, In Patna life will be peaceful. You'll be able to talk in your Parsi-Hindi accent and nobody will poke fun at you. As you have said, it is a land of angels. You have tried to tame the Maharashtrian devils for a long time, but they just don't listen, do they? I am a Maharashtrian who was in a minority in an Andheri Building filled with people from North India, and I was still able to terrorise them. You are witty Ms. Karkaria. I am now sure that Bal Thackeray was responsible for Bosnia and Czechoslavakia too, and the word Bal-kanisation! Not just witty, Ms. Karkaria, you are wise. And hence, it is beneath your dignity to stay among the primitive tribe of Maharashtrians, so what if they were given their state by the constitution? So what if lakhs of migrants from Bihar and UP live in unauthorised slums, use unauthorised means to get the taxi and rickshaw permits and live on unauthorised electricity? And then Raj Thackeray makes a point of the Railway Board examinations being advertised in only the Zone A (I am sure Ms. Karkaria that you know all about it) newspapers. Who the hell do the Maharashtrian think they are? Can they even read? Why should the Railway Minister coming from the Land of the Buddha give an advertisement in the Maharashtra who has produced no such enlightened being? Oh, these Maharashtrians will go ranting about Tilak who started Kesari and Acharya Atre who started Maratha and incidentally was the devilish mind who said that the Marathi speaking people should have a state of their own! The cheek of the man! The marathi speaking people never had a right of a State of their own, did they Ms. Karkaria? You call Rahul Raj, an avenging angel, Ms. Karkaria. You are truly blessed! Oh and these Mumbai Police! Maharashtrian fools of course! They shot the poor fellow! Of course as you know that Maharashtrian population in Mumbai is on a decline, so they thought that his fellow passengers and bystanders were mostly non-maharashtrians. But why did they have to worry about that? Wasn't Rahul Raj an angel with the interest of Biharis at heart? He wouldn't have hurt a fly! Just killed Raj Thackeray! And who needs Raj Thackeray anyway? That would get Mumbai one Maharashtrian less. How well you know us Maharashtrians, Ms. Karkaria. For 50 years, we welcomed everybody to make a home for themselves in our State just because we wanted to show the who the Boss was right? Ms. Karkaria, I don't know why they call you Bachi, it sounds like Bacchi. And you have made such a mature comment in your article. I admit that my little pun on your name is nothing in front of your highly intelligent, mature and responsible pun on Bal Thackeray and 'bal-kanisation'. But then I am just an ordinary Maharashtrian, Ms. Karkaria. When you do settle in Bihar, please let me know. I shall come there to seek job opportunities there with some of my Maharashtrian friends. And then you could teach me a thing or two about punning responsibly and intelligently. I see that you are stuck in a land of the devils when you actually are longing to go to the land of the angels where young men like Rahul Raj will protect you with Z security. I know, Ms. Karkaria that you have really been instrumental in shaping Maharashtra with your enlightened articles, teaching us how angels look like, but I think we don't deserve you. Go, Ms. Karkaria, we won't stop you.

  2. Hahaha, that was hilarious Kaushal. Khupach masta! Hya dikhavyacha "secularists" va "nationalists" na hyach bhashet uttar dile pahije. Jai Maharashtra!
