State funeral for Bal Thackeray, calm city lines up

Bal Thackeray

Thackeray's servant Thapa stood along with Uddhav and Raj, Sena patriarch's estranged son Jaidev and grandsons. Raj, who had walked out of Shiv Sena after Thackeray anointed Uddhav his successor in 2004, broke down when the pyre was lit.

Suffering from respiratory and pancreatic problems, Thackeray passed away on Saturday, losing a four-day battle for life.
