Web Extra: First Person COMMENTS
A person can't be reduced to just one memory. There are many dimensions and layers that reveal over a period of time. Bal Thackeray, to me, is an aggregate of many such memories.

Read with great interest the narration by Mr. Bhatt. What is puzzling and equally disturbing that even people with name, fame and intellect (at least this is what was the perception in case of Mr. Bhatt) in the society succumb to the pressures from unconstituitional authorities. The take home message was might is right and despite all the unlawful activities the person (i.e. Mr. Thackrey) has somehow a honorable side to his legacy which is beyond my comprehension. In all instances in the story, Mr. Thackrey was the decision maker without any accountability to any legal authority and law was a helpless mute spectator. Bottomline "my way or the high way".....great way for making progress. In summary, if this is the plight of famous people, the plight of common man is beyond comprehension who go through this kind of ritual everyday. Mr. Bhatt, it would have been a better service to the reader if you did not narrate this...at least we would have lived in the world where ignorance is bliss.

Bollywood to me represents room temp IQ.
This is why Mahesh Bhatt, can be considered an Intellectual over there.
