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!

Syncretic effect of MNS?
3M spotted this taxi in Mumbai that sports praises to a Muslim saint and the war cry of 'Marathi Sub-nationalism' in one breath... the syncretic approach of Raj Thackeray seems to be working. Can't even think of such an signage in the 1990s when his uncle was all powerful!
