The Mumbai Dabbawala is as Mumbaikar as one can get. Wonder what he’d say about the MNS – ShivSena squabble over guardianship of the ‘Marathi Manoos’ identity?

    Hmmm.. Perfectly caught the essence of Maharashtra’s polity.
    I must add, this one-upmanship game played by the brothers isn’t limited to just Mumbai now. The younger bro wants to achieve ‘success’ all over M’tra.
    Great work..

    This is agreat gift that we are acquainted with the facts of state in our so secular and democratic svereign country BHARAT and look at these mean activities of parochialism with disdain.A wonderful illustration to ever moving BHARAT for seeing all such fessiperous tendencies in a very comical way.Regional politics can stiffle all sorts of positive activities and can fail our country.Use every sort of skill to defeat their motives.
