The late Balasa­heb Thack­er­ayJi was a dy­namic politi­cian. He was very close to Shiva and had only good things to say about him.

Shiva re­called that when he had first done a hair­cut for the late Balasa­heb Thack­er­ayji, the renowned politi­cian was ex­tremely im­pressed by Shiva and ex­pressed his grat­i­tude by giv­ing him an ‘on point’ com­pli­ment - “It is look­ing very nice”. And hence Shiva’s jour­ney in the Thack­eray house­hold started - he was the Thack­eray fam­ily hair­styl­ist for seven years. In fact Shiva had been to Matoshree just a few days be­fore Balasa­heb’s demise to trim his hair and beard. Shiva said, “I wor­shipped Sa­heb. I went to cut his hair and beard eight days be­fore. And he told me qui­etly, ‘I am un­well. It’s not like be­fore; I am re­ally un­well.’ He had a cer­tain sad­ness about him. I touched his feet as I usu­ally do and I prayed. He was a fighter. Little did I know, it would be our last con­ver­sa­tion”.
