The Thane nocturnal killing is mind blowing and give a frenzy look to killing of wife, kids, sisters, parents, nephews and nieces with cleaver before hanging himself.

This quite unassuming youth allegedly slit the throats of 14 members of his family, with the youngest victim being his own three month daughter and the oldest his father at an age of 55. The cruel murders raised a feeling that it was an Alfred Hitchcock movie as series of killings took place. The front page news in the news dailies will cause ripples in the minds of youngster and divert their mind to commit such a heinous crime. It was like a ritual Qurbani and it was the talk of the town. The proponents of this theory possibly had a skewed understanding of the concept of Qurbani, which possibly led to the ritual killing.
A butcher’s blade was used in all these killing after poisoning the victims. But the buzz is that the devil was behind the midnight massacre. Youth today, tend to compare themselves with others and feel inferior when they do not match up to their peers. Only if they understood that by comparing them to others, they are being highly unfair to themselves because they are limiting their capability to that of their peers. The peculiar tendency of the model youngster shows frustration and the present generation should avoid cultivating the habit of hatred and taking revenge. He made them lie on the floor like the lambs in a slaughter house. Positive thinking is an optimistic state of mind, which sees the bright side of life. A positive frame of mind brings more harmony and happiness, improves relationships, and attracts success into your life. Thane youth lost his composure and paid heavy price for being complacent and made shocking exit.
