Past and Present - Panorama Maharashtra, edited by Dr. Saryu Doshi,

Title:Past and Present - Panorama Maharashtra, edited by Dr. Saryu Doshi,
Author:Arunachalam, B.
Enumeration:Vol. 36-4/37-1, p. 15-22
Abstract:Maharashtra as an entity became a reality under the able leadership of Chhatrapati Shivaji. The Maratha territories expanded and contracted with the rise and fall of the Peshwas. Broadly, contemporary Maratha lands lie within a triangle bounded by Goa, Daman, and Gondia. The administrative evolution of the state of Maharashtra is the belated outcome of the linguistic reorganization of the states of India, effected on May 1, 1960, as a sequel to the spontaneous agitation for a Samyukta Maharashtra. The state was formed by bringing together all contiguous Marathi speaking areas, which previously belonged to 4 different administrative hegemonies. The following sections are discussed in detail in this article: The Land, Geology and Topography, The Climate, The Resources, The Economy, The People, Cultural Unity, and Maharashtra in India.
