  1. No doubt the cartoons are very realistic in itselves, but the state of economy & rape case can’t be only laughed at like this. They are more serious, sacred conditions.
    The congress ideology of secularism & Hindutva of Shivsena has history. What ever the BJP may say their ideology starts at Nagpur & Ahemedabad reaches to WB with ShriRam . In reality its more dangerous to Secularism.
    So far as Maharashtra is concerned NCP has never differed with congress in ideological status, even if it seems to be when you look to the politics of Mr. Pawar for last 50 years
