Update: The level of insanity and stupidity people exhibit is beyond my imagination levels. After reading the following post, a ton of people have began bashing me as ‘Anti-Maharashtrian’ who thinks Mumbai ‘should not’ belong to Maharashtra. I feel sorry for your intelligence and propose you take negative IQ test.
Following post only intends to show how the big corporates divide Mumbai & Maharashtra. I, for God’s sake, know that Mumbai IS A PART OF Maharashtra. Stop posting idiotic comments.
I’m quite sure you’ll have noticed the following screenshot but never bothered about it. Since Maharastrians chose to remain ‘outsiders’ to the world of business, they’ve almost no or say close to zero say in the matters that matter. While Mumbai is very much a part of Maharashtra, the telecom network operators don’t seem to believe so. This is what I found on AirTel’s website and then found the same on all network operators – Mumbai isn’t considered a part of Maharashtra:-
I personally get pissed off that the rest of Maharashtra isn’t even worth considering. Even the Marathi TV channels seem to be focused on ‘Mumbai’ than other cities in Maharashtra.
Just wondering, if Maharashtrians do not have a command over Mumbai, why not declare it as a separate state altogether? Why should it be called the ‘Capital’ of Maharashtra?
