People and Culture in Maharashtra

To know more about Maharashtra, one should also try to understand the people here as well as the culture they follow. The Indian state of Maharashtra ranks second when the world’s most populous subnational entities are considered. Since the population is huge here, the cultural dynamics here are naturally prominent. Officially, the language spoken by the people of Maharashtra is Marathi and the dialect seems to be varying from one region to another.

This Indian state was under the rule of the Maurya Empire and this scenario takes you back to the 4th and 3rd centuries B.C.E. However, in 230 BCE, the state of Maharashtra was ruled under the Satavahana dynasty and this phase didn’t end before 400 years. After that, there were many empires and dynasties under which the state was ruled. The British Empire ruled the wester region of Maharashtra, which they considered as the Bombay Presidency. This presidency constituted the divisions of Nashik, Pune, and Konkan.

Ganesh Chaturthi: Ganesha Chaturthi is one of the most popular festivals in Maharashtra which is celebrated by all the people including Bollywood celebrities with great pomp and show. People bring home eco-friendly Ganesha for around 9 days and then go for visarjan with great excitement. Tourism in Maharashtra makes great arrangements so that the tourists can also participate in this festival.

Nag Panchmi: This festival is celebrated on the 5th day of the holy month of Shravan when people offer prayers to Shesha Nag, known as the snake God. People on this day offer sweets and milk to snake and offer prayers to them. It is an important festival in Maharashtra. 

Famous Food of Maharashtra

Bhel Puri: One of the famous foods in Maharashtra which is now popular even in northern India is bhel puri. The rice puffs sprinkled with tamarind chutney and vegetables makes for the perfect light snack. Bhelpuri can be seen at every street in Mumbai and also at the beaches and Chowpatty.

Vada Pav: Another popular dish in Maharashtra which is not only cheap but also tasty vada pav. People, rich or poor can be seen eating vada pav on the streets of Maharashtra. It is bread bun, inside which deep-fried potato is placed along with chutney topping.

      Suhas was good at planning all the things and his responsiveness and support was great. He is very polite and coordinated with another hotel and provided us different hotel when there was a problem. Though he helped us to change the hotel on the next day, we faced difficulty for one night as the opted hotel (Royal Hills @Mahabhaleswar) maintenance is not good and the hotel staff behavior is ridiculous. Driver is good but he does not know much places when we asked him where to dine out. Also he is having very less idea on the routes and different tourist spots to visit. In every hotel, breakfast available after 9 AM. I don't understand how this policy has made for tourist places. I was disappointed about the breakfast timings and it was not informed earlier and did not stated in any of the quotes.

      Overall experience was nice. Reg Hotel at Jabalpur we had already offered our opinion. Pl try to avoid that hotel for future guests. Other hotels were ok. We had opted for stay at Orchha. But it was without knowing abt place. U can offer stay at Zasi rather than at Orchha which is more convenient. Bedhaghat was superb.Duwadhar fall also very nice. Bandhavgarh tour was nice. We could see Zasi Fort. As Rani Laxmibai was from Maharashtra, it was a proud feeling for us to visit the place.

      Our first hotel Zip by spree spine was good in ambience. But, their restaurant was under repair and food was not available. They suggested us to order food from Swiggy. Our second hotel room was initially not having enough of space for our family. Later on room was changed on our request. The difference amount paid by me and it was refunded by agent afterwards. The third hotel 'Treebo Hillway inn' worst in condition. Location is very poor. Too small a room and bathroom exactly opposite to bed and we were unable to close the door as it was swollen. No curtain is provided. We were not given option for choosing from other rooms. But the dood was very good in this hotel. Sightseeing was good in Mahabaleshwar. Driver was very good and cooperative. Mahabaleshwar sightseeing at all points. Especially we felt very happy to see waterfalls and lion's point and Elephant point. Finally we have ended with great plateau land Panchgani. It was superb and awesome.
