B(e) for Mumbai...& Maharashtra...

एक छन्निच्या एक घाव तरी
बसू द्या रे माझा दगडा वरी
आज इमारत जुनाट झाली
मरतील जीव अकारण खाली
म्हणुनी आदि या
पाडून टाका देऊन धक्का ...

What's in a name? That which we call Mumbai by any other name would still be as intoxicating...

Let's focus on the real issues, gentlemen. Like power shortages, farmer suicides, naxalism, infrastructure, water management, terrorism, congestion, slum rehabilitation...

Or suffer the consequences. You can fool all of the people some of the time or some of the people all of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.

Wake up, Raj...

  1. Note:

    English translation of the paragraph from the poem "Paatharvat":

    Let there be atleast one blow from my chisel
    To make a dent on the stone
    This structure has now become old & flimsy
    Innocent people may die underneath
    Come forward, every one
    So that we may push it and make it fall
