The horse galloped down the street, its hooves hitting the rough surface asphalt, the clip-clop sounds ringing loud and clear, echoing all over the barren countryside. In no time, the four legged black beauty reached its destination___a massive sky kissing golden lion shaped palace that glistened brightly under the glare of the morning sun.
A man, clad in regal robes, traditional kingly headgear studded with dazzling diamonds and myriad precious stones alighted from the horse amidst cries of “Long Live Our King”.
Soon, a swarm of courtiers led their prince through the palace doors towards a twenty feet high lion shaped throne.
And then amidst the chanting of sacred hymns and verses, the man was anointed the new king.
Cries of “HAIL OUR NEW EMPEROR” , “GLORY TO OUR SUPREME LORD”, AND “LONG LIVE OUR MASTER”echoed all over in ear splitting deafening roars.”
“Dad, I am sorry to wake you up but there has been a hiccup”.
Udhav Thakeray lifted his head from under the sheets, and rubbed his eyes.
“What is it, son” You look concerned?”
Aditya twiddled his thumbs, and replied in low voice, “Dad, we have lost the throne. Fadnavis Uncle has joined hands with Ajit Pawar and formed a government in Maharshtra.”
“Nooooo….” cried out Udhav before screaming out like a man possessed ,”the bastard has shattered all my dreams”
