“Sena attacks BNHS for ‘Bombay’ in its name”

This made a big headline in today’s Times of India. Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) is a more than 120 years old institution that has undertaken pioneering wildlife conservation and research in the country, could not escape the outlandish movement for the Marathification of Mumbai being embarked on by the Shiv Sena and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS). I understand most of the people dislike such things but there are a many who stand in support of this xenophobia failing to understand what would this do to the image of brand Mumbai and later brand India in the broader perspective. After 1991 reforms India opened its gate to the world. The availability of skilled workforce encouraged foreign companies to set up research and development facilities in India across all the major sectors and we soon became the most preferred destination for outsourcing services. Indians trampled the conventions and excelled everywhere making our economy to grow and flourish and lifting up the middle class to different level. But now these Uttarakhand, Vidarbha, Telangana, Gorkhaland, Marathi and other regionalism issues are dilapidating shining India and growing India picture. In Indian Constitution, articles 19d and 19e give its citizens the right to move freely and reside anywhere in the country. But now 63 years after independence, India is in the hold of a dreary debate over this immutable fundamental right because of political parties like Shiv Sena and MNS. After ramshackle in MNC’s offices in Mumbai and Pune, MNS has demanded 80 per cent of the jobs in private companies in Maharashtra to be reserved for the Marathis creating further snag to the corporate. We are the growing economy and we have many more critical issues to address upon to sustain our growth rate, but much precious time is spent debating and attending above mentioned issues. If India is to actually perform its role on the world stage in the 21st century then it is the responsibility of citizens of this mighty democracy to play an active role in shaping the country’s priorities. And our priority should never be to promote hatred ness on the name of regionalism, caste and creed. Political parties like MNS and Shiv Sena are practically playing with the future of next generation Indians to fulfill their political greed. Their activities would inflame private organizations to root off base, if not instant then gradual, from the most preferred destination to somewhere else along with lacs of jobs and the victims could be you and I too.
