#AhilyabaiHolkar reign was one of the most well-administered reigns in India, where festivals, charity drives, etc. were a norm & there was no sign of tyranny

One of the major developments of her was the unprecedented rise of Indore- from a small village to a prosperous city

In the times when most of the kingdoms in the then Bharatvarsha were reliant on trade & agriculture, #AhilyabaiHolkar promoted weaving & textiles in Maheshwar

The Maheshwari saris sold even now, are known for their patterns which mimic the power & vistas of river Narmada

In latter days from Brahma came,
To rule our land, a noble dame,
Kind was her heart and bright her fame,
Ahilya was her honoured name,” - Joanna Baillie in honour of one of the greatest Maratha woman rulers, Ahilyabai.
Ahilyabai Holkar was born in the village of Chondi in Jamkhed, Ahmednagar in 1725. She was fondly referred to as Rajmata. She was the Holkar Queen of the Malwa kingdom. Her father, Mankoji Rao Shinde, was the Patil (chief) of the village.
Her father home schooled her. She was married to Khanderao Holkar in 1733 at the age of 8. Her husband was killed in the battle of Kumbher in 1754, leaving her a widow at 21. Her only son, Male Rao Holkar ascended the throne under her regency. He too died on 5th April, 1767.

Coming from #AntiHindu #BreakingIndia forces isn’t surprising!
All scaremongers singing ‘save Hindu-heritage’ must’ve been investing in shops/lodges on encroached Mandirs making fast bucks from firangs!
#KashiVishwanathCorridor truth covered personally👇🏻
@thewire_in @BJP4India Gathered over days of walking around in #Varanasi , visiting the shamelessly encroached Mandir sites & speaking to people, here are some facts all #Hindus must know!
@thewire_in @BJP4India दीवारों से घिरे हुए मंदिर,जिन्हें फ़िरंगी चरसी नशेड़ियों से डॉलर एनठने के लिए लॉज, माँसाहारी होटलों में तब्दील कर दिया गया
ऐसे सैकड़ों निर्माणों का विरोध ६५ वर्ष #कांग्रेस सरकार ने क्यूँ नहीं किया,
प्राचीन मंदिरों का विनाश करने वाले कौन हैं
इनके विरोधमें क्यूँ कोई आवाज़ नहीं उठी?

Today is the Jayanti of Ahilyabai Holkar, rated as one of the greatest queens of history, on par with Catherine of Russia, Elizabeth I of England. One of the wisest rulers of India, and a remarkable woman of whom we can be justly proud of.
Ahilyabai Holkar belongs to a league of great Indian women in history, like Rani of Jhansi, the Gond queen Rani Durgavati who took on Akbar, Kittur Chenamma, Rudramadevi and many more who demonstrated true Nari Shakti.
Ahilyabai Holkar, the daughter in law of Malhar Rao Holkar, the founder of the Holkar kingdom. Widowed at a young age, took over as queen, she takes her place in history among other great queens.
