How Bal Thackeray and his Shiv Sena changed Mumbai forever
Saamna was the staple read in the family though they never had the good fortune to meet Thackeray
in person. In his younger days, Surve used to be sent by his mother to the baker's stall down the
street every morning for pau (bread) and eggs. Some evenings, when families in the building had
substantial orders, the man Surve called 'chacha' would come around, riding his bicycle with his box
of kharas (fluffy crackers), buns, biscuits and other goodies to deliver at their doorsteps. It is a
testimony to the level of indoctrination among children belonging to Maharashtrian families
supporting the Shiv Sena at the time that Surve soon found himself in a gang of youngsters actively
rioting on the streets.
