    Post Daily RC Passage for the date 21-Apr-15

    Summary: Bombay, the home to people of all creeds, convictions and languages began to change swiftly and blatantly after the name-change. Mumbai lost its pluralist power due to growing power of marathi manoos. Migrants felt Hostility from marathi manoos and those who stood up against them were either igmored or silenced by threats. Gov. too is passing laws against these migrants for instance ban on beef which is part of daily diet and cheapest form of protein for them .Also gov. oredered for a screening of marathi movie at prime time. "Dadagiri" called by shobha de was interpreted as 'Insult to marathi sentiments' and was threatened. Many people who love mumbai and made it their home are increasingly narrowing the its culture and social outlook. Mummbai is on the verge lossing the image which bombay had i.e. one of the greatest city in the World'.

    Central Idea: Bombay once known for its elastic accomodation of divergence and dissent has become increasingly intolerant of any form of heterodoxy. People who love mumbai are narrowing its culture and Social outlook. Bombay has changed with its name to Mumbai.

    Summary: The passage shows the changing attitude of the residents, making Mumbai lose its diversity. Some of the examples in support of this are: imposing ban on all forms of beef which affects the minorities for whom its the cheapest form of protein; forcing the multiplelex to screen only Marathi movies during the peak hours. Thanks to the political groups i.e. Shiv Sena and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena who impose their narrow cultural and social outlook in the name of uplifting the Marathi culture making Mumbai lose its diversity and spirit of vibrancy.

    Central Idea: Mumabi is losing its spirit of vibrancy and diversity due to the narrow minded cultural and social outlook of the political groups prevailing in the city.
