Today on May 1 we celebrate Labour Day aka May Day as well as Maharashtra Day (also known as Maharashtra Din and Maharashtra Diwas). Maharashtra and Gujarat, two big states of India celebrate their respective foundation Days on this special day. It is said that at the time of India's independence, the state of Gujarat was a part of the Bombay region. The state of Maharashtra was therefore established on May 1 itself. Earlier Maharashtra and Gujarat were not separate states. The Bombay region is constituted of both Marathi and Gujarati- speakers. However, soon the people speaking Marathi and Gujarati demanded different states for themselves. The day witnesses vast celebrations in these states with people exchanging happy greetings with their loved ones. This is why we bring you a collection of Happy Maharashtra Day 2022 greetings, Maharashtra Din images, Maharashtra Diwas wallpapers, Maharashtra Day 2022 WhatsApp messages, Facebook quotes, SMS, GIFs and so on.

Many states were formed under the Reorganization of States Act 1956. Kannada speaking people saw the formation of Karnataka state, Telugu speaking people Andhra Pradesh and Malayalam speaking people Kerala whereas Tamil speakers saw the formation of Tamil Nadu state. On May 1, 1960, the then Nehru government of India divided the Bombay province into two states - Maharashtra and Gujarat under the 'Bombay Reorganization Act 1960'. There was also a dispute over the city of Bombay between both states. Eventually, Bombay was made the capital of Maharashtra. Maharashtra Foundation Day is no less than a celebration, so people congratulate each other on this day.
