Tigers do, dogs do ... Mumbai micturated

Uddhav Thackeray says Shah Rukh Khan must retract his statement or it will have consequences. Shah Rukh Khan says there is nothing that he said which he can retract. Shah Rukh has not called Thackerays slappy headed sugar tits yet so what exactly should he apologise for. Shiv Sena's Saamna newspaper misuses the right to expression by calling people names, yet believes Shah Rukh doesn't have the same right to speak his mind. While all this goes on, governments at both the Centre and the state wait and watch and at best seek legal counsel.

Uddhav Thackeray says Rahul Gandhi must retract his statement about Mumbai belonging to all Indians, else he would not be allowed into Mumbai in future, clearly marking his territory.
In jungles, tigers are known to mark their territory by leaving their smell by excreting or . In , dogs can be seen lifting a hind leg against walls, car tyres and electic poles to do the same. Laws of the jungle, you know! Thackerays do not go out of Mumbai, not even to parts of Maharashtra. They remain inside their Dadar stronghold and bark at folks living in Bandra. They beat up Biharis and UP wallas. I hardly remember Bal Thackeray travelling to any other part of India. If my memory serves me right, he has visited Delhi only once in past many years. And we are told the world is small place. That we live in a freaking global village. In a country where boundaries have disappeared because of needs of economy and better means of travel, a family is redrawing boundaries. And we need their permission!

The Congress in its zeal to see the Sena divided allows both the young Thackerays to fight and prove who can do maximum damage to Maximum City. It's a turf war between two cousins that may cost India its founding principles. The basic idea of India is that people who speak different languages can live together in harmony. That unity in diversity is under attack by two cousins and we can do nothing about it. It's not Congress's shame. It must ashame all of us.
That a bunch of hoodlums can slur Shah Rukh Khan because he, a Muslim, dared inviting Pakistani players is a national shame. That a political party with an increasingly minor following can bar citizens from other parts of the country from seeking in employment in Mumbai must reflect upon all of us. That a family decides which feature film can be shown in theatres has been a burden that we all must bear.

We keep blasting Australia for racist attacks on Indians Down Under. We have no blasted ability to stop the same right here, on our soil. The attacks are not on Shah Rukh Khan or so-called north Indians. It's an attack on India and is potentially far more dangerous that the non-state actors from Pakistan inflict upon us. Pakistani terrorists kill Indians, Thackerays try to kill India, the very idea of India.

why is everything the senile sea does news? the senile sena have nothing to party to run and have a lot of time in their hands, and hence look for opportunites to stay in the limelight. as the joke goes.. the party should change its emblem to a condom (a different “coat” - rubber this time) because it more accurately reflects it’s political stance.
A condom allows for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks, and gives you a sense of security while you’re actually being screwed."

need i say more???

The sooner we understand, the better - SRK and SS had an advertising deal! News, news!
They made a killing in the first three days with the super-crappy MNIK, and now, I learn bookings for the film have dipped by more than know this happens, isn't it, when a film gets a piece of genuine, word-of-mouth publicity? :) Yeah man, serves them right!
