    Good Interview with Jimmybhai…. I know him personally since 8 yrs now and he said exactly the same things in the interview which he always says to the Shiv Sainiks in Rajkot. He has slowly but surely transformed the otherwise violent image of Shivsena in Maharashtra into a people-friendly organization in Rajkot. People trust him and Shivsena both and this also contributes in ” Trikon Baug ka Raja ” being a major success over the years.
    Overall a nice interview by Devangbhai.

    1. Kamleshbhai, I’m indeed glad to have read your such detailed observation. Thanks a tone for being a vigilant reader of SpeakBindas.

        Ya, you are welcome… Nice to know that someone in Rajkot is doing efficiently the reporting work in English Journalism. Previously, I thought Rajkot didnt have a single English language Journalist of its own.

        1. Oh! I can’t take such a credit all alone. There must be journalists actively working in the field of English language journalism in Rajkot. But it’s also true that the exposure of people working in English journalism is not much, as the people of Rajkot are more used to reading news in Gujarati language, and which is quite obvious 🙂
