Balasaheb Thackeray : The Tiger is No More.

Shiv Sena Supremo Balasaheb Thackeray Passes Away : Maharashtra Loses Its Iconic Leader,End Of An Era in Maharashtra, The Tiger has Gone Silent.

The Final Wave

(From The Editor )The Iconic and Charismatic Shiv Sena Supremo Balasaheb Thackeray passed away today afternoon at 3:30 pm at his residence Matoshree,with this, today Maharashtra lost its most Iconic Leader, a leader who not only made an Impact  in Maharashtra’s Politics but also at the National Level.

Balasaheb Thackeray also known as SAHEB by the Shiv Sainiks was a very Candid and Nationalist Leader, Though Balasaheb would be known as a a rebellious leader as a person he was the most strongest promoter of Nationalism atleast among those who knew him closely a fantastic read.Shiv Sena was a Party which gave nightmares to every single Political Party with their style of functioning, he influenced every individual whom he met, whether friends foes or the Common Man, his charisma was known to those who met him.

I remember meeting Balasaheb during my College days at a Star Studded Night organized by Shiv Sena at the Andheri Sports Complex, though we were from the NSUI Panel the rival of ABVP in University Elections, when I met Balasaheb his Charisma left me astonished as a teen,for me the person known as Bal Thackeray was like a demon, but that 2 minute meeting with him when I met him along with fellow College Students changed my views about him as a person, though Balasaheb Thackeray was known as the most dreaded Politician many who knew him or had met him would recall him as the most focused person, a person who chose his words during his speech  and targeted many a religions he was way above it personally.

Though Balasaheb Thackeray may be known as a Shiv Sena Supremo who was known or though felt as a urban Phenomenon only in Mumbai and Maharashtra for the Marathi Manoos, his legacy was more than a SARKAR, a Cartoonist who changed how people looked down at Maharashtrian’s, when I say Maharashtrian it meant every individual who stays in Maharashtra, is a Marathi a Maharashtrian. Though Bala Thackeray created stirs when Shiv Sena went behind Gujarathis or South Indians , Muslims or even North Indians, but the overall feeling is every individual knew that in Maharashtra there was only one leader who could make a change and Shiv Sena did that when they won the first Majority in Maharashtra, he had a Labor Minister who was a Muslim, he had close friends who were Muslims, he had North Indians in Shiv Sena as Leaders, he was a Cosmopolitan Leader.

Today Balasaheb Thackeray is no more, but he will remembered and missed as a leader who was larger than Life and a Phenomenon .

Rest in Peace Balasaheb, your Legacy,Persona and courage will always be missed by Mumbaikars, Maharashtrians and Indians who understood you as a Person and Not a Politician.Its the end of an Era.
