Chhatees ka aakda

"Thackeray lives in kachra suburb", screams a Mid-Day headline today. The article is about a BMC survey that has found Bandra (East) to be the dirtiest place in Mumbai.

Sure Bal Thackeray lives in Bandra (East). As do thousands of others. So, what's the point of the headline?

Is it that he is a leader of the Shiv Sena, which rules BMC along with the BJP? I can already imagine the headliine if Bandra (East) was the cleanest suburb while the rest of the city rotted.

I seem to have caught the Mid-Day bug about Hindi headlines.
