Raj Shrikant Thackeray (born 14 June 1968) is the founder and president of the right-wing Marathi ethnocentric regional political party, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena ("Maharashtra Reformation Army") in the state of Maharashtra, India. He is the nephew of Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray, and a cousin of the current Shiv Sena Executive President Uddhav Thackeray.

Early life:-

Raj was born on 14 June 1968 in a Marathi Kayastha (CKP) family to Shrikant Thackeray (younger brother of Bal Thackeray) and Kunda Thackeray (younger sister of Bal Thackeray's wife Meena Thackeray).Raj’s father Shrikant Thackeray was a musician, cartoonist and was also well versed in the language of Urdu. He studied in Balmohan Vidyamandir, Mumbai and graduated from the esteemed Sir Jamsetjee Jeejebhoy School of Art, Mumbai. As a child he learnt the Tabla, the Guitar and the Violin. He had a keen sense of music. He also loved drawing which later turned into a passion for drawing cartoons. He used to contribute cartoons to Marmik, their weekly magazine when he was in school. But somehow both music and drawing did not turn out to be his chosen career. He says, "The only RAAG that I understand is RAAG"

Political career:-

Raj started his political career with his Uncle Bal Thackeray. Bal Thackeray has been a huge influence on Raj’s life. Raj has been said to have modeled himself after him.In 1997, he started the Shiv Udyog Sena a youth wing for the Shiv Sena. With this he tried to strengthen his youth leader image. "He raised funds for the employment agency with, among other sources, concerts by Michael Jackson and Lata Mangeshkar and thus, simultaneously, propagated the new brand of the Sena's popular culture and its implications for a nascent generational change within the organization".But his association with the Sena ended in 2006. In January 2006 he resigned from the Sena alleging that it was being "run by petty clerks" because of which it had "fallen from its former glory". There has been quite a lot of speculation over the real reason why he left the party. The popular rumor being that he was being "sidelined" by Bal Thackeray’s son Uddhav. In the same year Raj announced his intention to start his own political party. Although separated from his mentor, Raj has always maintained that he does not want to have hostilities with his uncle who "was, is and always will be (his) mentor".

Political Views:-

Good Friends;
Real friends are those who care without hesitation,
who remember you without limitation,
who trustful without suspicion,
and who love even without communication.
..............
Fake friends;
Laugh/mad on you without real reasons,
never remember you unless they need/use you,
never around when you need them.
..............
So be careful how to choose your friends
and how to plan your future.
Good Luck.
