Public celebrations of #Navratri in #Maharashtra began in 1926 & are linked to reformers Prabodhankar Keshav Sitaram Thackeray, Dr #BabasahebAmbedkar & Rao Bahadur S.K. Bole. This was a form of counter-culture against #Ganeshutsav, which was then dominated by #Brahmins
Incidentally, #Ganeshutsav was popularised by #LokmanyaTilak in the backdrop of the Hindu-Muslim riots in 1893-94. It soon replaced #Muharram, which was then the most popular festival in the Bombay Presidency, with massive participation from Hindus
The #Ganeshutsav at #Dadar in #Mumbai, saw donations being collected from people across castes. However, the organising committee was dominated by Brahmins, who kept other groups away from it. The singers and religious orators were also Brahmins. In short, they ran the show.

The 1st terror attack in #Mumbai happened on 14 September 1946. The fallout of these unfortunate events also have a link with two iconic figures in #Maharashtra-Acharya Pralhad Keshav Atre and Prabodhankar Thackeray, father of #ShivSena chief Bal Thackeray #history #MumbaiPolice
1946: India was on the boil due to communal tensions & the impending partition of the sub-continent. Mumbai too had seen communal riots take place, allegedly sparked off by the Muslim League.
14 September 1946: Two men who were travelling in a taxi from Bhuleshwar to Dhobi Talao opened fire from a sten gun at Kalbadevi. They killed seven people and injured 20. They had hired a taxi driven by Nariman Basta near Byculla station.

Thread: Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is a symbol of resistance towards tyrannical regimes. He was a rallying point for nationalists after the partition of Bengal in 1905. The 'Shivaji Utsav' tradition struck roots in Bengal in 1902

#ShivajiMaharaj #LokmanyaTilak #history
because of Sakharam Ganesh Deuskar. He was a Maharashtrian settled in Bengal. Deuskar taught in a school at Deoghar & was part of a revolutionary group set up by Rajnarayan Basu, the intellectual & grandfather of Aurobindo & Barindra Ghosh
Deuskar was the first to write about #ChhatrapatiShivajiMaharaj & Peshwa Bajirao-I in Bengali, detailing their bravery & exploits. His 'Shivajir Mahatva' was republished as 'Shivajir Diksha' in 1904.

Efforts being put in by @resqct and @MahaForest @MilishSharma #DhananjayWaybhase in Gadchiroli to monitor this incredible wild #Elephant herd in #Maharashtra to prevent human-elephant conflict @NehaPanchamia @ranjeetnature @DJIGlobal @SageEarth (1/4)
Using UAV Thermal Drone imaging to monitor elephants is safe for the #elephants and the humans involved, as it can be done from a distance. It is quite silent and observes the elephants post dark from a height of 100 ft without disturbing them. (2/4) Image
While sincere efforts are being put to prevent human-elephant conflict, the herd often ventures out of the forest patch post dark and causes a fair amount of damage to the crops of local farmers and homes of the villagers. (3/4) ImageImage

While #GaneshUtsav is celebrated across #Maharashtra & India, few know that the genesis of these public celebrations lie in the communal conflict that happened in the late 19th century.
#LokmanyaTilak #Ganapati #Muharram #Hindu #Muslim #Pune #Mumbai #GaneshChaturthi #Tilak
In August 1893, there was a massive communal riot around the Hanuman Temple at Pydhonie in #Mumbai. The #Marathi textile mill workers entered the fray, and the violence intensified. The army was summoned, but more riots were reported from places like Raver and Yeola.
As @BharGo8 notes: Before industrialisation, #Mumbai was a #Hindu minority city. The demographics changed due to the influx of the Marathi workers from the Konkan after the launch of the textile mills. The 1893 riots (not those in 1992-93) changed the social fabric of #Mumbai

@RituRathaur @nitin_gadkari & @ChouhanShivraj dropped from #ParliamentaryBoard.

@myogiadityanath & @himantabiswa not inducted.

#Sonowal inducted & #Fadnavis in #CEC.

Both Board/CEC packed with #Modi Coterie & past their prime leaders.

Harbinger of things to come.

@RituRathaur @nitin_gadkari @ChouhanShivraj @myogiadityanath @himantabiswa #Modi mounted his coup in 2012 against D4 by forcing his way into #ParliamentaryBoard & then becoming Campaign Committee Chief.

10 yrs on, he is guarding against any such counter move by his possible challengers who are getting more popular than him by the day.

Their move now.
@RituRathaur @nitin_gadkari @ChouhanShivraj @myogiadityanath @himantabiswa This is also a dirty move to replace @nitin_gadkari, the best minister in #Modi cabinet with #Fadnavis as the party's face in #Maharashtra.

Fadnavis with missionaries' darling social butterfly wife makes a powerful combo to appeal to the Woke Chatteratti, Glamoratti & the Church

This is the #Malegaon fort in #Maharashtra. It witnessed not one but two different instances of Indian Muslims’ resistance against British

In 1818, during third Anglo-Maratha war, Muslim soldiers of Maratha army defiantly held the fort; even as Chatrapati & Peshwa surrendered
30 soldiers died & many more were injured during siege of the fort. It took the British 36 guns, 8,000 shells & 35,500 pounds of gunpowder to finally take over the fort

Almost a 100 years later, in 1921, the bugle of revolution was again sounded in Malegaon
The people of Malegaon had responded to Khilafat & Non-Cooperation movement of 1920 with enthusiasm. They’d boycotted British institutions, set up their own courts & picketed liquor shops. The British provoked violence in order to clamp down against revolutionary activities.

फाइनली ईडी ने संजय राउत को गिरफ्तार कर लिया...संजय उसी दिन से उनकी आंखों में खटक रहे थे जब जब सदन में सीना ठोक कर कहा था कि जिस स्कूल में तुम पढ़ते हो उसके हम हेडमास्टर हैं..संजय राउत की गिरफ्तारी तो बीजेपी की साख का सवाल थी....वो तो होनी ही थी....

बाकी आज संजय राउत का स्टाइल
अच्छा लगा...ईडी छापेमारी के बीच शिवसेना नेता संजय राउत की तरफ से ट्वीट कर लिखा गया है कि झूठी कार्रवाई..झूठा सबूत, मैं शिवसेना नहीं छोड़ूंगा..मैं मर भी जाऊं तो समर्पण नहीं करूंगा..जय महाराष्ट्र.. महाराष्ट्र और शिवसेना की लड़ाई जारी रहेगी..

इन सबके बीच मेरा विश्लेषण ये है कि अब
गोदी मीडिया को चिंतित हो जाना चाहिए...चापलूसी में अपनी ईडी अब गोदी मीडिया को पछाड़ रही है.... अंजना,रुबिका,अमीश,अरनब के लिए ये स्थिति चिंताजनक है....

Anyone visiting old Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra is likely to know about the Panchganga Temple, the temple where the waters of five rivers - Koyna, Krishna, Veena, Savitri and Gayatri come together. But right behind the parking for the Panchaganga temple, there is a
small well marked trail which takes you to another temple well worth exploring the Krishnabai temple.

The path takes you through the woodland to a clearing at the side of a hill, and what has to be one of the more dramatic temple settings.

The temple is dedicated to Shiva,
and consists of an arcades court which was possibly open originally but later roofed over, with a high stone wall at the rear.

Here is the supposed source of the Krishna river, with direct parallels with the nearby Panchaganga Temple in having that water pass through a stone

हे खटमल @AparBharat म्हणतात की
"मुंबई-अहमदाबाद हा जास्त प्रॉफिट मिळवून देणारा रुट आहे."

आयुष्यात त्या route ला कधी फिरला नाही आणि हे घरी बसून शेटपेक्षा जास्त फेकतात.😂


हा थ्रेड तुझ्यासाठी आहे वाच👇
#Thread सत्य
प्रथम ह्या route संदर्भात थोडक्यात माहिती घेवू आणि शेवटी काही प्रश्न विचारू, बघुया किती प्रामाणिक उत्तर देतो.

मुंबई अहमदाबाद route
दोन्ही शहरांमधील अंतर ४५२ Km असून ह्या route मध्ये ६० weekly express आणि १५ daily express धावतात.
एका RTI अहवालानुसार, ह्या ट्रेन route ची occupancy ५०-६०% आहे आणि ४०-५०% ट्रेन खालीच(blank) जातात म्हणजे ४०% रेल्वेला नुकसान होते आणि हे नुकसान(लॉस) महिन्याला १०-१५ कोटी आहेत.
आणि हा खटमल म्हणतो हा route profitable 😂

अरे चवल्या, जास्त profitable route मुंबई-गोवा आहे.

There is one misfortune of being born to powerful and charismatic men, the constant comparison. #UddhavThackeray has always been known as the son of #BalasahebThackeray, the founder of #ShivSena — even when he held the numero uno post in the state of Maharashtra. Image
In his younger days, #UddhavThackeray was known more for his photography skills, which led him to branch off into an advertising business – proving that he inherited his father’s artistic skills. Balasaheb was a well-known cartoonist in his younger days. Image
