In Maharashtra, the significance of Holi speaks of a distinctive mythological story altogether. Amid the Maratha regime Holi was celebrated with extraordinary ceremony and magnificence. It was on a Holi celebration day that five-year-old Jijabhai, girl of Lakhooji Jadhav guiltlessly sprinkled coloured water and tossed gulal on youthful Shahaji, child of Malajirao Bhowale. Taking it as a favourable occasion, the two children’s engagement was declared that day. Soon they were hitched. Afterward, Jijabhai gave birth to Shivaji, the author of an incredible Maratha realm.
