A blog that captures the happenings in Maharashtra and rest of the Marathi World (Bruhanmaharashtra) through the eyes of a 3M – Madhyamvargiya Marathi Manoos (Middleclass Marathi Man). Neither is it a view of the anglicized minority which has lost touch with its roots... nor does it speak for the Marathi masses who may lack the “worldview”. Just a somewhere-in-between viewpoint… but a firm viewpoint indeed!

Mr. Raj Thackeray… what is this? The Mumbai Monorail Dabba has “Mumbai Monorail” written in English! Considering Mumbai is the capital of Maharashtra it should be in Marathi… मुंबई मोनोरेल! Correct or not?
No… Baba… No… You cannot just write it in Devnagari Script… it has to be translated in Marathi… So what do you call 'Monorail' in Marathi? Hmmmm… एकेरी लोहमार्ग?
Now can MMRDA design a logo for मुंबई एकेरीलोहमार्ग?
