3M finds it funny that a person who pronounces his own surname as सरदेसाय instead of सरदेसाई speaks about "preserving cultural identity of Maharashtrians". His usage of words describing himself as a "Goan Maharashtrian" almost gives an impression that he is apologetic about his roots. His anglicised Marathi introduction to the Tendulkar-Gavaskar interview that he "read out" on IBN-Lokmat (a Marathi news channel) almost sounded ShobhaaDesque!

Rajdeep's open letter to Raj
It is interesting to read Rajdeep Sardesai's open letter to Raj Thackeray.
I agree with him about need for constructive instead of destructive measures from Raj. But Rajdeep seems to totally miss out on the root cause of Marathi Manoos's anger. We have to realise that Raj is just riding the wave which others have failed to spot.
