“We are Marathas, everything we see should be in Marathi and if it is not then we wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t keep that place in proper shape” That is what so called Shiv Sainiks think and do….and this is what happened yesterday in PuneÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
Shiv Sainiks attacked shops in Pune with shop names written in EnglishÃ¢â‚¬Â¦they wanted shops to have names in Marathi tooÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Now this is what again makes me think that “Is this what they call democracy?” These politicians are just giving dictatorship a false name of democracyÃ¢â‚¬Â¦where a single party passes some rule without asking or taking public suggestion and in the end they sayÃ¢â‚¬Â¦the rule is created for the well being of publicÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
The same kind of thing had happened in Mumbai alsoÃ¢â‚¬Â¦but I guess they did not get much success in itÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
The point here is not just about naming shops in Marathi but its about forcing people to use Marathi everywhereÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.the names of stations and famous places have become name of Maratha king ShivajiÃ¢â‚¬Â¦the statues have been replaced by Maratha king ShivajiÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.
Shopkeepers and theatre owners (Specially in Malls, big shop outlets and Multiplexes) are forced to keep Marathas Ã¢â‚¬Â¦and if they fail to do that then “we wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t let you run your shopÃ¢â‚¬Â¦we will attack on the shopÃ¢â‚¬Â¦damage the glasses of the shop” this had happened here in MulundÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Shiv Sainiks had attacked shops in Mulund for not having Marathas as majority of their staffÃ¢â‚¬Â¦so these kind of activities forced them to hire Marathas in the places where they do not belongÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.
I am not talking about the educated people hereÃ¢â‚¬Â¦I am talking about the ones who have no idea about the language “English” or word “Decency”..I have seen many guys in the theatre stalls more interested in talking to their colleagues rather than giving more attention to the customersÃ¢â‚¬Â¦I have seen many guys shouting like road side vendors rather than having some decencyÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
So what I am trying to say is…to keep themselves in MumbaiÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Shiv Sena should really get out of “We Maratha” world and face the realityÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.No one is against Marathi people but everyone should be given same importance because this Mumbai is lot more than “Marathas’ World”
