Welcome to Marathi Culture and Festivals

About us
Message from Founder and managing edtitor

Hello Everyone,

This is our little effort to promote Indian Marathi culture and Festivals. This website is in English with some articles or posts in Marathi. I sincerely hope that this will be useful to people of Indian origin, particularly Marathi speaking who were born and brought up outside of India or moved out from India at a very young age and whoever wants to know and enjoy Indian culture and festivals. 

This is not just for people of Indian origin, I welcome everyone who whats to know about Indian culture and festivals to read and enjoy this site. I personally believe that promoting any culture is a social service to bring people together, when you study and enjoy various cultures, you connect with different background people and share knowledge and help each other.

Indian culture has values based on eternal principles and hence I feel we need to nurture it so not only we can follow it ourselves but also pass it along to the next generation. The objective of this site is to help ourselves in this effort. Of Course this is going to be a refresher to the people who enjoyed these festivals and rituals back in India.

All festivals have some underlying important value along with subtle message relevant to current era. They also have some interesting legends behind it. With this effort I hope to encourage and motivate the younger generation to celebrate and enjoy Marathi traditions and festivals. 

I had privilege to write for various news channels like Jai maharaqshtra , India west, Samana .

This site also a global platform to showcase talent. Readers send articles, recipes and share festival celebration pictures as well. We have recently launched an initiative on "Helping Hands" to encourage people to come up front and help the mankind. 

I have a team of advisers and volunteers who spare their valuable time to help me out with this initiative.

Keep celebrating!
