Everything comes from Maharashtra!

3M loves to highlight the "Marathi Touch" in the most unexpected places in this world by giving examples like Castles in London and "South Indian" Sambhar to a quaint Bengali Palace and the Malaysian Railways




Anil, my ex-boss would always tease me that I sound like the “Everything comes from India” guy in the British serial 'Goodness Gracious Me'… luckily found the entire compilation of this guy’s scenes on YouTube… enjoy!!!

SPECIAL NOTE FOR ANIL - Please do not forget that 7 out of 16 "Makers of Modern India" are Marathi ;-)

जास्तीची Majority - Ads that "fight" communalism

In the last few months, 3M came across a few ads created to fight communalism... do watch all of them carefully to find out what is in common!


Did u see a trend? No?
Hint: Find out who is the "Wrongdoer" in each of the ads - Barber, Neighbourhood Uncle & the Grandfather (Tauji)
No? All are "Majority"!
Would love to see an Indian ad that shows vice versa!

Raj Thackeray's Girgaon Sabha 11 April 2014
