In the month of February, for a period of almost 10 days, Maharashtra, and especially Mumbai, was living with the Sword of Damocles hanging over its mighty head. It was an irony that the Sword was wielded by one of its self-proclaimed ‘Son of the Soil’, one Mr. Raj Thackeray. And once again the reason being the age-old ‘Sons of the Soil vs. The Outsiders’ issue; the Outsiders this time being North Indians.
It transported me back to a day and age when the mighty Hitler had called for an ethnic cleansing of ‘The Fatherland’ Germany, by asking his Nazis to destroy and exterminate the Jews in Germany. To call for a ban or an excommunication on a certain section of society based on their regional ancestry, caste, culture or creed reeks of an uncivilized & barbarian mentality. A mentality in which there is no place for the ideals of brotherhood, humanity, & justice and which views the world in an almost animalistic fear because you feel that even your neighbor possesses the same mentality.

Love can be for so many things, though the common and rather famous ones are the ones for the opposite sexes. Though nowadays, love for the same sexes is also heating up. But love can take various forms – for mother, for father, for friends, for siblings, for gadgets, for movies, for bikes, for cars, for cities…
I’m in love with this city – Bombay. If you ever are in Bombay, or come to Bombay, do yourself a favour. Go to South Bombay. Which comprises Colaba, Napaen Sea Road, Malabar Hill, Marine Drive, Fort, Chowpatty, Bhulabhai Desai Road, Grant Road, Muhammad Ali Road… There is a different world, and I mean world in the truest sense of the word, to see in every nook and corner of this small but magnificently vast city.
