According to historical records, during the British rule, India was divided into about “600 princely states and provinces”. In the mid-1950s, a regional movement known as the Samyukta Maharashtra Andolan started agitations and protested demanding a separate Marathi-speaking state. The Bombay Reorganization Act was passed by Parliament of India to divide the multilingual state of Bombay into Gujarat and Maharashtra, with Ahmedabad and Bombay serving as their respective capitals. The legislation came into effect on 1st May, 1960 with the first Maharashtra Day being observed.

Maharashtra Day celebrations are held at the Shivaji Park in Mumbai annually. The grand event is marked with the presence of the Governor, the Chief Minister and other cabinet ministers, armed force officials, along with the proud and emotional public. Maharashtra Day is commemorated by hoisting the national flag, by a colourful parade and paying tribute to the martyrs. Stock markets, schools and offices across the state remain closed on this day. We take a look at a compilation of Maharashtra Diwas quotes and messages to celebrate the huge occasion with joy and fervor.
