Overview: Bal Thackeray and the Rise of the Shiv Sena

One of the most powerful political outfits in Maharashtra, today, is the Shiv Sena. Its leader was a dynamic individual called Bal Thackeray who transformed from a modest cartoonist at one of India's leading newspapers into a force to reckon with. How did he gain control over the financial capital of India in Mumbai?

Bal Thackeray & The Rise of The Shiv Sena written by Vaibhav Purandhare tells the complete story of Bal Thackeray, his rise to political prominence and the end of an era after his death in November 2012. The book tells us how Bal Thackeray's sons-of-the-soil movement shook the city of Mumbai in the 1960s. It studies Bal Thackeray as a person and analyses his collusive political personality. It highlights the fight between his son Uddhav Thackeray and his nephew Raj Thackeray who eventually split from the Shiv Sena to form his own political unit. The book also talks about Shiv Sena's efforts towards providing Marathi people with employment rights. It gives a detailed account of how the Marathi Manoos managed to win over the hearts of millions of his followers and strike fear in the minds of his enemies. However, the book is not biased towards the political outfit as it also sheds light on their attacks on South Indians and the Communists. The reader also gets to know how the Shiv Sena established their predominance over the country's multi-crore film industry. Bal Thackeray & The Rise of The Shiv Sena also explains how the organization aroused Pakistan's curiosity through their long standing alliance with Bharatiya Janata Party.

The author, Vaibhav Purandhare, is a renowned journalist who began his journalistic career with Blitz, a political magazine in 1993. He has since worked with many of India's leading newspapers such as the Indian Express, Mid Day, Mumbai Mirror, The Asian Age, and DNA. He grew up in the city of Mumbai in the 1980s and 90s witnessing the rise of Bal Thackeray and the Shiv Sena. Perhaps this would explain the reason behind his accurate analysis of the political heavyweight known as Bal Thackeray. Bal Thackeray & The Rise of The Shiv Sena is available for online shopping with the ISBN-10 number of 8174369589 and ISBN-13 number of 978-8174369581.
