Quiet, private 52nd birthday for UddhavJuly 27th, 2012 - 6:55 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, July 27 (IANS) Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray, who turned 52 Friday, spent his birthday quietly at his residence with the family, a party official said here.
Recuperating after an angioplasty performed on him last Friday, Uddhav did not celebrate his birthday.
Moreover, his father Bal Thackeray is also currently in Lilavati Hospital, adding to the sombre mood in the party which normally celebrates its top leaders’ birthdays with great fanfare.
Besides, the party official pointed out that Maharashtra is suffering a drought-like situation in many parts and it would not be proper to celebrate the birthday at such a juncture.
However, this did not deter his admirers and well-wishers from putting up posters and banners in several parts of the city, suburbs and other major cities in the state, greeting Uddhav on his birthday and wishing him speedy recovery.
Outside his residence ‘Matoshri’ in Bandra east, it was quiet and peaceful without the usual crowds of party activists thronging there to wish him.
