प्रिय अमुचा एक महाराष्ट्र देश हा

Hutatma Smarak

बहु असोत सुंदर संपन्न की महा
प्रिय अमुचा एक महाराष्ट्र देश हा

गगनभेदि गिरिविण अणु नच जिथे उणे
आकांक्षांपुढति जिथे गगन ठेंगणे
अटकेवरि जेथील तिरंगी जल पिणे
तेथ अडे काय जलाशय नदाविणे ?
पौरुषासी अटक गमे जेथ दु:सहा

प्रासाद कशास जेथ हृदयमंदिरे
सदभावांचीच भव्य दिव्य आगरे
रत्नां वा मौक्तिकांहि मूल्य मुळी नुरे
रमणईची कूस जिथे नृमणिखनि ठरे
शुद्ध तिचे शीलहि उजळवि गृहा

नग्न खड्ग करि, उघडे बघुनि मावळे
चतुरंग चमूचेही शौर्य मावळे
दौडत चहुकडुनि जवे स्वार जेथले
भासति शतगुणित जरी असति एकले
यन्नामा परिसुनि रिपु शमितबल अहा

विक्रम वैराग्य एक जागि नांदती
जरिपटका भगवा झेंडाहि डोलती
धर्म-राजकारण समवेत चालती
शक्तियुक्ति एकवटुनि कार्य साधिती
पसरे यत्कीर्ति अशी विस्मया वहा

गीत मराठ्यांचे श्रवणी मुखी असो
स्फूर्ति दीप्ति धृतिहि जेथ अंतरी ठसो
वचनि लेखनीहि मराठी गिरा दिसो
सतत महाराष्ट्रधर्म मर्म मनि वसो
देह पडो तत्कारणि ही असे स्पृहा

- श्रीपाद कृष्ण कोल्हटकर

    1 May : Maharashtra Day
    ————————————————————————-
    ————————————————————————-
    Maharashtra Day, commonly known as Maharashtra Din in Marathi and Hindi, is a state holiday in Maharashtra, India commemorating the formation of the state of Maharashtra from the division of the Bombay State on 1 May 1960. Maharashtra Day is commonly associated with parades and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history and traditions of Maharashtra.
    The States Reorganisation Act, 1956 defined boundaries for the states within India on the basis of languages. The Bombay State that was formed as a consequence of this act, however, was composed of different areas where different languages were spoken; Marathi, Gujarati, Kutchi and Konkani. The Samyukta Maharashtra Samiti was at the forefront of the movement to divide the Bombay State into two states; one composed of areas where people primarily spoke Gujarati and Kutchhi and the other where people primarily spoke Marathi and Konkani.
    The state of Maharashtra and Gujarat were formed as a result of this movement according to the Bombay Reorganisation Act, 1960 enacted by the Parliament of India on 25 April 1960. The act came into effect on 1 May 1960.
    Observance
    Every year the Government of Maharashtra issues a notification declaring 1 May to be a public holiday to be celebrated as Maharashtra Day.
    Customs
    Every year a parade is held at Shivaji Park where the Governor of Maharashtra makes a speech.
    Liquor sales are prohibited on this day across Maharashtra.
