In a recent interview , Sena Supremo Bal Thackeray had made an open offer to rebel nephew , Raj Thackeray also the Supremo of MNS (another Sena, split out of Shiv Sena) to take a first step ahead and he is open to accept Raj back in Shiv Sena. The doors of Shiv Sena are always open for Raj provided he initiates.
Answering this Raj opened his heart out saying he could walk 100 steps for his uncle Bal Thackeray whom he claimed still respects very much and also declared his grudge against the functioning of Uddhav Thackeray , the son of the Shiv Sena Supremo and other Sena leaders! He explained about his services in Shiv Sena were only limited to addressing rallies prior to elections while key jobs were handled by others.
Well, this is not a hidden fact that Uddhav and Raj never got along with each other and hence it was Raj who had to take a call, either to be in the Shiv Sena and keep doing as being told or leave politics . However, he had other things in mind and hence floated his own party. The Unique Selling Point of the new party remained the same as the Sena’s where love for state of Maharashtra and Marathis were highlighted. The only difference was Shiv Sena with the advent of time since birth had become a little diplomatic as they had tied – up with national level parties while the new Sena , being a new – born baby and desperate to make its presence felt , has been aggressive towards portraying as a party just for Marathis.
Raj Thackeray has been following the footsteps of his uncle exactly , so far hence more than other opponent political parties , it’s the MNS which is becoming a bigger challenge for Shiv Sena as both share the common vote-bank of Marathi Manus.
Shiv Sena Supremo Bal Thackeray hinted about his open arms for nephew Raj Thackeray back in Shiv Sena provided Raj initiates the move. Also the Sena Supremo admitted that Marathi Manus votes are getting distributed between MNS and Shiv Sena because their split.
Well, it does not seem Raj Thackeray will ever get back to Sena.In fact he has already walked few steps ahead successfully with MNS, now being considered a strong political party throughout Maharashtra, within few years. However, the fact for now remains that the new baby born out of the Sena is making the Sena weak by eating up considerable number of Marathi Manus Votes of the Sena. In the process , its the NCP and Congress which are becoming stronger.
Politics on the basis of religion , caste and state is getting weaker in urban cities of India, thanks to the minimum level of literacy in these areas however a great part of India is still rural and easily gets influenced by all the political parties who under the blanket of well-wishers of particular religion ,caste or state , keep the flame of divide and rule alive throughout the nation.

Rave Party on Cocunut Island(St.Mary’s Island), Karnataka?
The recent party organised by the Udupi district administration and the Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation (KSTDC) to promote global tourism, has embarrassed the ruling BJP and the state. The Udupi district which is a stronghold of the BJP and a well-known pilgrimage centre for the Sri Krishna temple and the St.Mary’s Island, 6kms from Maple Beach. The beach where the ‘Spring Zouk 2012’ was organized by KSTDC in association with district administration and 3W concepts is considered to have been named by Vasco Da Gama, St. Mary Island, offering thanks to her for his accomplishments. The island comprising of 4 small islands is considered sacred by the minorities in the area and is also called coconut island.
Around 600 couples, mostly international tourists, attended the party and one of them was taped in camera while having sex in public. Reports indicate they were not the only one performing this act in public.Liquor and allegedly drugs were also available in the party. It was claimed as a proper rave party with hundreds of tents erected for the guests and booze and drugs in abundance.
Chief Minister D. V. Sadananda Gowda, on 6th of February 2012, ordered a probe into the matter and assured strict actions after the opposition party Congress, conducted a protest-march in Udipi last Sunday, blaming the government’s denial and inaction on the matter. They claimed religious sentiments of Christians were hurt with the island witnessing rave party. Gowda initially defended the three-day ‘international festival’. But he had to order a probe after a mobile phone clippings of at least one couple having sex during the party, reached local TV channels. The government and administration claims that the clipping may not be real as state cops were appointed there on duty while the party was taking place and no such incident was reported.
Well, BJP with RSS and Bajrang Dal being its allies has thrashed Indian couples in the past ,be it Valentine’s Day and many other occasions, claiming to protect the Hindu culture. The same organizations and their people eloped while such incidents took place in BJP ruled state. Does it not matter to the self-proclaiming saviours of Hindu culture to protest this incident, taking place in religiously important district for Hindus, if not the island?
Haunting Dreams prior to Elections
Satish Chandra Mishra , the BSP(Bahujan Samaj Party) National General Secretary in his public speeches, has been heard, taunting at Rahul Gandhi that BSP symbol ‘Elephant’ haunts Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in his dreams.
With the trending support for Samajwadi Partyin Uttar Pradesh, led by Mulayam Singh Yadav, it might not be wrong to think if SP symbol, ‘Cycle’ may be haunting BSP supremo and Satish Mishra .
Uttar Pradesh has been witnessing series of non-stop rallies and public – meetings from all parties acussing opponents and praising their respective parties. It is the Uttar Pradesh public which would decide fate of the parties. Hopfully, they select the right political party as it would effect the fate of nation as well.

Entry of Muscle Power is no news in Indian politics. Deadlier is the entry of Underworld-The Corporate Anti-Social Group. It is not one man but a group of well-organized, filthy rich and socially influential people who wish to replace politicians(whom they might be bribing) to take direct control.
It is pity that India does not have any lawful and constitutional mechanism yet to stop such intrusions into politics of the country.
