The #ShivSena was launched on 19 June 1966 by #BalThackeray. Its initial targets were #SouthIndians. The genesis of the Sena had its roots in a similar anti-South Indian campaign by his father #PrabodhankarThackeray in 1922 Thread:

You must've heard on Poster War
b/w BJP & REAL ShivSena
under .@mieknathshinde Ji.

The Poster war gave Ammunition to Media to speculate rift b/w
@Dev_Fadnavis Ji & Eknath Shinde Ji! Even supporters of both were worried/confused.

Some insight!
It all started after @ZeeNews publishing Opinion Poll showing NDA winning 165-185 seats in #Maharashtra if Elections are held today. Both BJP & SS should've been happy. Instead, things heated up after Shiv Sena putting banner saying“राष्ट्रा मध्ये मोदी, महाराष्ट्रात शिंदे"!

2/11 Image
Same opinion poll by @ZeeNews showed People's choice as CM to be .@mieknathshinde Ji with 26.1%
& .@Dev_Fadnavis Ji at 23.2%.

After this, SS put banner indirectly claiming legacy on CM Chair for Eknath Shinde Ji.

#Maharashtra BJP leaders obviously raised objection to it.

“The 80s were a very interesting period for bikes in India. I saw people discarding old #models and buying new bikes very fast. I wondered what happened to those old #bikes, and that’s when I hit upon the idea of collecting them", says Vinit Kenjal, the man behind the museum. Image
#Vinit also points out that vintage bikes evoke a sense of nostalgia in visitors. “From dropping children to school and taking your beloved on long rides to giving lifts to strangers, there are several emotions associated with scooters.
I want to give the older generation an opportunity to relive those moments again,” he adds.

Many people even labeled us bhangar wali, plastic wali, bottle wali (junk dealers),” says Namita Kapale, who, along with Kalyani Bharmbe, has built an eco-friendly house using 16,000 plastic water bottles.
Finding a meaningful use for excess #plastic waste, the duo# constructed the house in #SambhajiNagar near Daulatabad. They used cow dung, soil, plastic bottles, and 12-13 tonnes of non-recyclable plastic to build the house on a nearly 4,000 square feet field.

No Information as such today....
Just genuine suggestions out of concern!

I'm nobody to give advice or suggestion to any Senior Politician or Leader! But still opening up my mind!

Let me come to subject.... BMC Elections!!

I'm sure that #Maharashtra NDA Govt will not repeat mistake of #Karnataka BJP Govt of not sensing Public Mood by delaying Local Body Polls. I think notification for Local Body Polls after Monsoon will be issued anytime in August. I would just like to point certain facts.

This is Golden & maybe, Last chance for BJP to get Richest Municipal Corporation of Asia under control for 1st time. But some acts need to be pulled together.
🔸NDA Govt in Maharashtra MUST ensure Potholes Free Roads & No Water-logging in Mumbai in coming monsoon.

Indians across faiths follow syncretic traditions. Recently, Tryambakeshwar, a jyotirlinga of Lord Shiva near #Nashik in #Maharashtra, hit the headlines after it was alleged that some Muslims tried to forcibly enter the shrine
Later, it was clarified that the men were following a decades-old tradition, where the devotees of the Sufi saint Hazrat Syed Ghulab Shahavali Baba stand outside the temple and blow the smoke from the loban (frankincense) into it as a mark of respect

2 February 1971. The neighbours of Darabshah Sethna (82), a resident of Jehangir Mansion, near Metro Cinema at Dhobi Talao in #Mumbai were intrigued. The main door of his 5th floor was locked, which was unprecedented as the family never went out together.

Manwath is a taluka in #Maharashtra's #Parbhani district. It is located around 500-km from #Mumbai. This obscure place was rocked by a series of 10 gruesome ritualistic murders in the 1970s. These killings were the result of #superstition.
#thread #truecrime #police #history ImageImageImage
Five girls who were about ten years old, an year-old child and four women in their mid-thirties were murdered between 14 November 1972 and 4 January, 1974. These murders had a similar modus operandi and pattern. They were committed at night. These incidents shocked #Maharashtra
The time and location of the crime,use of women as victims, nature of injuries caused to them, pvt parts of some of the victims being cut to extract blood, the absence of motive for the killings, the attempt to dodge the police and the extreme brutality made the case macabre

The #food scene in #Mumbai is actually very boring. #Pune is very vibrant in comparison with several choices on offer. One is actually spoilt for choice…
when it comes to #Marathi food l, there is Surves Pure non-veg at F C road, the various restaurants like Nagpur hotel and Shambhavi in Sadashiv Peth, mutton bhakri joints at Khed Shivapur, Milan and Aware Khanaval at Kumthekar Road,
Kothrud and Paud road have restaurants serving niche cuisine from parts of #Maharashtra like North Maharashtra. I could go on and on… perhaps because of high real estate prices and rentals, #Mumbai does not see too many of these budget, affordable places.

This is what happened at #Trimbakeshwar temple on 13th May 2023, attempts are being deliberately made to hurt #Hindu sentiments and create a situation ! Why? To create a riots situation in #Maharashtra 🤔
What is state Government doing? No national media covered this ! Why?……
Impact of putting out this video and news
FIR has been registered by Nashik police in the matter of the illegal gathering of a crowd at the main gate of the Trimbakeshwar temple. Deputy CM @Dev_Fadnavis has also ordered to constitute an SIT led by an ADG-level officer to probe……
The #TrimbakeshwarJyotirling trust had put out a letter and video stating facts about the incident why live in denial still is the question to be asked.

If this would have been a ritual. Would the temple trust send out a letter to the police ? And put out a video?…

#Thread on Maharashtra Day:

Sometime in the early 2000’s a young Maharashtrian musician realised that Marathi songs were not being played on the FM stations, as they were not commercially viable.

He decided to address this situation by making a landmark Marathi song.
He took a unique approach. He decided to make that the sole focus of his life.Over the next 18 months, he did not take up any project.

The other decision he took was that it would be done with the best singers, in the best recording studio and with the most talented musicians.
He also planned to do a mass funding for this mainly to create an awareness movement and able to do the best he can.

A friend of his came home and he ran this idea past her. She immediately gave him a ₹500 note and was one of his strongest advocates throughout the project.

Heartbreaking news coming in from Karjat, #Ahmednagar, #Maharashtra where a 17-year-old girl was raped by Ajju Sheikh and Raju Sheikh, when she was alone at her home. The accused entered her home asking for water and then brutally assaulted her. Image
The victim confirmed that she knew the accused and agreed to offer them water. But then they took advantage of the situation and raped her. This heinous crime has shocked the entire community and left everyone in utter disbelief.
The accused have been booked under various sections of the IPC and POCSO, but they are still absconding. It is a matter of great concern that the police have not made any arrests yet.
