Grand launch of the grandson of Balasaheb Thackeray!

The stage is set for a grand launch of Balasaheb Thackeray's grandson Aditya Thackeray at the Dussera rally at Shivaji Park. Aditya was in news recently for removing Rohington Mistry's Booker-nominated novel 'Such A Short Journey' from the syllabus. This was seen as a build-up to Aditya's launch in the politics!
Personally I'm surprised at the hurried entry of Aditya into politics. Couple of years back I was in touch with Aditya through chats & mails, I found him to be a sensible, intelligent and down to earth youngster. He was crazy about cricket, poetry and photography, but never talked much of politics. He wanted to make a career in either cricket or photography. But sadly politics has swallowed many talented people from Thackeray family, from cartoonists Balasaheb/Raj to photographer Uddhav Thackeray.

And watch out for Aditya! He can provide a new image for Shiv Sena!
(may be not by burning and banning books)
