Welcome To Mumbai Road !!!!

Mumbai man with 14 wives

Air India may be cash-strapped, but one of its engineers in Mumbai had 14 wives. Though all the 14 wives lived in different localities, none of them knew of Waghmare's multiple roles. In times of recession and job loss, one may find it difficult to run a family, but Tushar Waghmare Bapat, 40, managed to have 14 wives. You may wonder how he did this. In the first fortnight of the month he would spend money on his wives and in the next his wives would take care of him, as most of them were employed. He used to stay for three days with one wife and then leave saying he is going on a tour. But his multiple-life did not run far. The Mumbai police arrested Waghmare when one of his wives found out the real story. Air India promptly sacked Waghmare.

His modus operandi was the internet. He registered his profile with a marriage portal. His profile read thus: Divorced in 2006, looking out for working Brahmin women. Divorcees or widows no bar. Three of the wives were architects or engineers, and the others homemakers, police said. He however, looked after them well, till his salary ran out. After that, the wives looked after him. Waghmare was caught when one of his wives said she was going on a tour. He promptly told her that she need not hurry to return. Getting suspicious, the lady did not go on tour and a day later returned only to find another lady in her house.

Waghmare had checked in with another wife.

The furious lady went to the police and filed a complaint and he was arrested on Aug 18.

Waghmare is now cooling his heels behind bars and has neither his wives nor friends to bail him out. Interestingly nobody turned up to bail out the much married man.

Ten locations in Mumbai, India

The Story:

On the evening of November 26, 2008, television programming all over the world was interrupted with the breaking news that Mumbai (Bombay, when under British rule) was virtually under siege. Mumbai is one of India’s—and the world’s—largest cities, with a population of 18 million. Commentators inside the city observed that all activity but that of the police and other authorities had come to a halt by the day after the attack.

Ten to twelve locations were identified as targets by eyewitness observers, all located in the wealthy areas of town. They included the Taj Mahal Hotel, the Oberoi /Trident Hotel, a Chabad House (an orthodox Jewish organization), one or two hospitals, a train station—the , Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, the Leopold Cafe and a domestic airport and a police station.

The Taj Mahal hotel was emptied fairly rapidly by the police and the army, but the Oberoi hotel was still believed to have 200 people inside, as well as an unknown number of attackers, on the 27th.

In several of the locations, attackers opened fire. In the hotels they took hostages, seeking out foreigners and especially British and American citizens. Grenades were set off in other areas. The Taj Hotel was hosting a parliamentary conference and a number of visiting dignitaries were ensnared in the violence, but none were harmed.

The reports of the numbers of killed and injured varied in the midst of the attack. As of November 27, 2008, most reports indicated that about 100 victims were killed, and at least 200 injured. These included members of the police and security forces.

The identity of the attackers was not immediately known. They were described in first hand accounts as young me wearing jeans and tee-shirts.
