Michael Jackson, The King of Pop

Michael Jackson, The King of Pop
His death brings back the memories of his tryst with the Celluloid city - MUMBAI ,13 years ago, when he mesmerized thousands of Mumbaikars with his performance at jam packed concert. The event was organised by Shiv Udyog Sena, an outfit floated by then Shiv Sena leader Raj Thackeray with the objective of providing jobs to 27 lakh youth in Maharashtra. During his short stay here, life in Mumbai centred around MJ and his stories.
The Message he left for and on India (1996)
India, all my life I have longed to see your face. I met you and your people and fell in love with you. Now my heart is filled with sorrow and despair for I have to leave, but I promise I shall return to love you and caress you again. Your kindness has overwhelmed me, your spiritual awareness has moved me, and your children have truly touched my heart. They are the face of God. I truly love and adore you India. Forever, continue to love, heal and educate the children, the future shines on them. You are my special love, India. Forever, may God always bless you.
Comments by Bal Thakre on Michael Jackson (1996)
"Jackson is a great artist, and we must accept him as an artist. His movements are terrific. Not many people can dance that way. You will end up breaking your bones.And, well what is culture? He represents certain values in America, which India should not have any qualms in accepting. We would like to accept that part of America that is represented by Jackson.
