Paluskar has sung the original version of 'Raghupati Raghav Rajaram' & arranged 'Vande Mataram' India's national song. He is also credited with ensuring that #music & musicians secured the respect that they deserved.

This thread is based on the writings of social reformer & journalist Prabodhankar Keshav Sitaram Thackeray. Prabodhankar, the father of late #ShivSena supremo #BalThackeray wrote about Paluskar on 17 October 1942. Image

@queenpatriot_45 Watch Ranveer Singh perfectly capture the victorious spirit of Peshwa #warrior Bajirao in this high-octane traditional song 'Malhari' from the #Film 'Bajirao Mastani'.

Peshwa means #PrimeMinister. This is the origin of the #Trump meme.

@queenpatriot_45 The #Trump guy is Bajirao I, #PrimeMinister of the #Maratha Confederacy in #India.
He compared #Mughal's to a tree:

Let us strike the trunk of the withering tree & the branches will fall off themselves. Listen to my counsel & I shall plant Maratha's flag on the walls of Attock
@queenpatriot_45 Those of you familiar with how #Trump helped Rudy Giuliani as an #Undercover agent to take down the #NewYork #Mafia Families, from the bottom up, will recognize the significance of this quote.
This is why the #Cabal leaders are in such a #Panic right now.

Mahadaji Shinde (1730 – 1794) was a Maratha general and Raja of Ujjain (later Gwalior). He was also the architect of Maratha revival in northern India after Panipat.
He was the youngest of five sons of Ranoji Shinde, founder of the Scindia dynasty. Mahadji came into prominence following the deaths of his older brothers in Maratha campaigns in northern India 1750-61.
Mahadji provided the muscle (and troops) for Peshwa Madhavrao I and his adviser Nana Fadnavis political ambitions.

#Hindu Funerary Monuments:
Ordinary Hindus are cremated after their #death except for the saints. According to religious traditions, they are buried, and their shrines are called #Samadhi. The term Samadhi in #Hinduism also refers to an elevated state of mental awareness. 1/ Pic - Rajesh Avhad
Death by Samadhi usually involves inhumation rather than cremation on a pyre. However, samadhi memorials may or may not contain the remains of the deceased. This ritual occurs in 3 stages- taking Samadhi, the burial of the body, and site construction. 2/
The belief is that body of a saint or guru should be preserved as a symbol of sacred power. In this context, the #Hindu memorial is similar to the #Buddhist stupa, where relics of Buddhist teachers are buried and worshipped. 3/

मराठ्यांना शत्रू कोण आणि मित्र कोण हे समजत नसेल तर अवघड आहे. अजूनही हे सरकार आरक्षणासाठी गंभीर आहे असं वाटत त्यांना. मराठ्यांचं हातचं आरक्षण हे बारामतीला गहाण पडलेल्या मराठा नेत्यांनीच घालवलं आहे. वैयक्तिक स्वार्थ हा समाजाच्या पुढे त्यांना जास्त महत्वाचा वाटतो.
ज्या व्यक्तीने शालिनीताईंना मराठा आरक्षण मागितल्यावर पक्षातून काढलं तो खरोखर मराठ्यांचं हित जपेल का? आयुष्य जाती जातीमध्ये भांडण लावून स्वतःचं भविष्य सुरक्षित केलं, सर्व काही हातात असताना काही नाही केलं तो व्यक्ती तुम्हाला झुलवू शकतो पण न्याय देऊ शकत नाही.
दुसरीकडे मुका मोर्चा म्हणून हिणवणारे मुख्यमंत्री पदी बसलेत म्हटल्यावर अपेक्षा कसली आहे. फडणवीसांनी शिव्या खाऊन देखील मराठा समाजाला साथ दिली पण जातीच्या द्वेषात अडकवून मराठा नेत्यांनी त्यांची बायको काढली तरीही फडणवीसांनी तोल ढळून न देता सर्वाना सोबत घेऊन हायकोर्टात आरक्षण टिकवलं.

Since Dragon warriors or whatever are posing with some blades on a stick, I thought I would share some Indian boys with knives. These boys know how to go chop-chop with it. When it flashes, heads roll. Literally. Let's begin with Glorious Gurkhas #IndianBlades #IndiaChinaFaceOff
And this Dao is from our 'Rhinos' boys of Assam Regiment. Comes in handy when patrolling in jungles or high altitudes. Cuts through the bushes or bushy-tailed princes really well. #RezangLa #IndiaChinaFaceOff #IndianBlades
Next in line are our Sikh boy. Best avoided when they charge with their 'Kirpans' with the name of Wahe Guru on their lips and breathing fire. I am sure you would recognize them, they spent quite some time in the Dragon country. #RezangLa #IndiaChinaFaceOff #IndianBlades #Galwan

The slant-history writing of #Leftist Historians has portrayed many #Hindu Kings and Generals in a negative manner.

One such General was Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj’s #PeshwaBajirao Ballal - one of the finest cavalry generals in the history of India.

(1/17) Image
The 2015 #Bollywood movie #BajiraoMastani too portrayed him as a ‘mentally unstable lover’.

Is Bajirao only limited to Mastani? Definitely not. So, who was Mastani? Mastani was the daughter of King Chhatrasal of #Bundelkhand.

The name of Bundelkhand is also found in..

(2/17) Image
...the Puranas, Dasharna Desh, a region famous for its gem mines.

Mastani was very beautiful. She is described as such, but there is no mention of the red color of the neck while eating Paan, as often rumoured by several people. She came into Peshwa’s life after 1729.

#LokmanyaBalGangadharTilak - the ‘Maker of Modern #India’ and the ‘Father of India’s Revolution’

Tributes to a nationalist, teacher, social reformer, author and one of the first leaders of the Indian Independence Movement on his death centenary.

(1/9) Image
#LokmanyaTilak made everyone aware of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s idea of #Swarajya (self-rule).

He started grand public celebrations of ‘Ganeshotsav’ and ‘Shiv Jayanti’ in order to unite the masses.

#LokmanyaTilak ignited patriotic consciousness among the masses...

...during one of the most difficult periods in the freedom struggle.

His trisutri or three-point programme for national awakening – Swaraj, Swadeshi and Nationalist Education – lit the fire of self-pride and activism in a nation that was despairing and directionless.

तलवारींचे प्रकार!!! एकूण तलवारींचे प्रकार किती आहेत असे पेजवरील एका मित्राने मेसेज पाठवला आहे. तर, तलवारींचे प्रकार हा पुन्हा विवादास्पद विषय असून वेगवेगलर तज्ञ, अभ्यासक आणि संग्रहालय संकलक यांच्यात मतांतरे आहेत.

#मराठी #मराठा #इतिहासमहाराष्ट्राचा #इतिहास #History #india
आपापल्या परीने तलवारींचे प्रकार, उपप्रकार आणि देश-परिस्थिती-घडण या प्रमाणे त्यात कमी-अधिक संख्या दिसून येते. मुळात, तलवारींचे प्रकार किती अशी वर्गवारी करणे यापेक्षा तलवारींची कार्यशैली काय यावरून मुख्य प्रकार ठरवून,
मग त्यातील वेगवेगळ्या घडण याप्रमाणे उपप्रकार किंवा variant ठरवावेत असे आमचे मत आहे. जगातील प्रमुख तज्ञ किंवा संकलक हे ही अशीच वर्गवारी करतात. नाहीतर, या विषयाला निश्चित स्वरूप आणि पूर्णत्व यावयाचे नाही. विषय मोठा आहे, तरी आपण आज तलवारींचे कार्यशैली बध्द मुख्य प्रकार पाहू:

Many a times I hear statements like “#Shivaji has nothing to do with Mumbai”... so is he really from a far away place? @mumbaiheritage #ShivajiMaharaj #ShivJayanti 1/n
#BelieveItOrNot #Shivneri Fort, his birthplace is less than 100 kms from #Mumbai as the crow flies! 2/n
Raigad, his capital and the site of his cremation, is also less than 100kms from #Mumbai!

Why Should We Need to rewrite History of #India, #BhimaKoregaon is false pride.
(1) Though the battle was between British troops & #Maratha under Peshwa, the soldiers of British troops were not only #mahars but also Rajputs, Marathas, Jews & Peshwa's Troops were Arabs ImageImageImageImage
#BhimaKoregaon_शौर्यदिवस is a false pride
Among 500 British troops, only 49 were from #Mahars among them almost 27 died. The retreat of Peshwa is not due to the bravery of British troops but his own fear of approaching British troops. Image
Even #Ambedkar himself has written the account of #BhimaKoregaon where he mentioned among the dead British Soldiers; 22 were Mahars or Parwaris, 16 were Marathas, 8 were Rajputs, two were Muslims,& two were probably Indian Jews
#BhimaKoregaon202 is false

The demand for #MarathaReservation dates back to the 1980s. #MarathaUnFound
The 1st major agitations were initiated in 97 by organisations like #MarathaMahasangh & the #MarathaSevaSangh. According to the Maratha Seva Sangh, the #Marathas are essentially #Kunbis, a nomenclature given to agrarian communities that include Gujarat’s #Patidars #MarathaUnFound
Mandal Commission report of 1990, the National Commission for Backward Classes report of 2000 & the 2008 State Backward Classes Commission report pointed out that the #Maratha can't be considered as educationally or socially backward #MarathaUnFound
