As indicated by Karmalkar, there is a requirement for a broad examination about the Maratha realm, the rulers who governed Maharashtra and all different parts of the realm
The Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) has chosen to begin a free ‘Maratha realm’ study and examination focus, through which a definite investigation of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and other Maratha rulers will be embraced at the college.
SPPU bad habit chancellor Nitin Karmalkar stated, “On Thursday, the SPPU’s management council meeting was held, and I tabled a proposal to start an independent centre for research and study of the Maratha kingdom at SPPU. This proposal was supported and sanctioned by all the management council members. Accordingly, financial aid has also been given to start this centre.”
As indicated by Karmalkar, there is a requirement for a broad examination about the Maratha realm, the lords who governed Maharashtra and all different parts of the realm.
“There are thousands of documents in ‘Modi lipi’ which are still untouched and not yet read. So, to study and research in-depth about Maratha kingdom this centre has now been started by SPPU,” added Karmalkar.
Looking at beginning this new focus, city-based senior antiquarian Pandurang Balkawade who is additionally a chosen part on SPPU’s scholastic gathering, stated, “If we look at the history for more than 200 years, the Maratha kings after Shivaji Maharaj have ruled. There are five crore Modi lipi documents available about this glorious history of Marathas. And so, starting such a centre for its study and research is an important step. I hope that other universities in the state will also start such a centre as well.”
