A lot has happened since 2006, when Pravin Mahajan allegedly killed his older brother Pramod. Pramod died after battling many hours in the hospital. Today, the man who killed is battling for life in a Thane hospital, since Pravin suffered a brain haemorrhage, & has slipped into a coma.
Reasons for Pramod’s killing are official & unofficial. Official being that there was some jealousy & animosity regarding the money that Pramod had amassed & not distributed among his brothers. The unofficial was alleged by cops & politicians was that the womanising of Pramod was such that he was said to have an affair with Pravin’s wife.
Now a lot will never be known. The third being (which I believe the most) that Pramod’s wife was fed up of his womanising ways, philandering and took the help of her brother-in-law to bump off the husband. Now we will never know what transpired. But according to police chargesheet Pravin went holding a gun to Worli police station & told the cops “arrest me, as I have killed my brother Pramod Mahajan.”
Pramod was a legend created by the Brahmins of the BJP & RSS. The Mahajans were abso middle class Brahmin teacher family from Ambejogai, Marathwada. This region is the most backward & drought stricken of the country & our state Maharashtra. The young lad Pramod who was a teacher was groomed for bigger political picture. People projected him as the future prime minister. I would shudder that this person was someone who would be our PM??
His personal life was a joke by now. Young girls, their mothers, journalists, politicians, wives of police officers, galore, he did not spare a thought of the consequences of his actions. The young Brahmin leaders of BJP actually looked upon this man, they thought his over active sex drive & life was actually a reflection of his success. Problem with nouveau rich class of India is that they think materialism, money are symbols of success. Quick money doesn’t necessarily mean it is true success. I believe it is short lived which in this case was true.
Pravin shot his brother allegedly. The reason I don’t believe this part is that there are gaps in facts & evidence. His sister-in-law Rekha was in the house, apparently cleaning & cooking – which I absolutely do NOT believe..they had a dozen domestic help. Plus a middle class Maharashtrian housewife doesn’t wear rubber gloves while cooking. Common sense being rubber gloves are NEVER worn over heat, gas range.
Plus Pravin always considered his vahini like a mother & gave her that status & support. He has written a lot about it in his book. Now according to the police she was busy in the kitchen wt rubber gloves on (gloves would burn into her skin whilst cooking I thought), when she heard gunshots & saw her husband die. According to the book, which Pravin wrote in his book, Pramod-Rekha’s marriage was over. He was busy screwing every second woman, or girl. I still feel the wife who is now the widow too has a role to play in this whole mess. Not as what many believed.
In fact a BJP person told me Pravin would be out on parole in a year, except it happened in 2 yrs. The minute Pravin was out on parole he spoke to DNA & I don’t know why he seemed cool, mentally at peace. The slain brother has ensured Pravin’s family would get monthly income…so I do not believe finance was the real reason to kill him. I also do not believe that Pravin’s wife Sarangi’s having an affair wt Pramod was the reason. Pravin had somehow not cared abt it…NO way…Pravin’s book actually indicates who & why.. Since the time I heard Pravin is battling for life, I don’t know why I strongly feel, we will NEVER ever learn the truth of what transpired that day, when Pramod died.
