Marathi love poem
आरश्यातील तुझी प्रतिमा
हीच माझी सर्वात सुंदर कविता
पण जरा घाई कर, ती धूसर होतेय
तीच माझी शेवटची प्रेमाची अभिव्यक्ती आहे
Āraśyātīla tujhī pratimā
Hīca mājhī sarvāta sundara kavitā
Paṇa jarā ghā'ī kara, tī dhūsara hōtēya
Tīca mājhī śēvaṭacī prēmācī abhivyaktī āhē

A Marathi woman & her language
Poem for the love of more than 100% / 2 = 36 million women marathi speakers. She is one of them. It is in marathi (maharathi) language that one day she will read me. But, she is so mischievous that I know that she will compare, to mock me, her marathi and hindi image.
Marathi (Kudali, Kasargod, Maharathi, Nagpuri Marathi, Maharashtra, Kosti, Gawdi of Goa, Malhatee, Muruthu, Marthi, Autonym : मराठी, Marāṭhī) is close to the eastern Hindi.
If there are many dialects, the standard form is based on Poona's dialect. Poona was the capital of the Marathi kingdom of the 17th century, and the center of Marathi culture.
This language of the Indo-Iranian branch of Indo-European languages, official in Indian Maharashtra. has several dialects varhadd. Nagpuri, Kokni and the deshi, influenced by Telugu and Kannada. Some dialects can be quite different from the standard.
The Marathi descends from Maharashtri, itself from Sanskrit, and the area where Marathi is spoken is located at the southern end of the Indo-Aryan area and in contact with another large family of languages, the Dravidian languages.
In Maharashtra, Marathi, is the mother tongue of around 75% of the people, and understood by the majority of the population and is, without being the only language, the language of schools, media and administration. We can consider that after Hindi and English Marathi, even if it is only a regional language, is the 3rd most important language in India.
It is in the 8th century, in the kuvalaymala of Udyotansuri, that we speak for the first time of this language. The current writing the balbodhi, is derived from Devnagari. The modii, another script that dates back to the 17th century, has been used for some time.
The Marathi language, which is written with the Devanagari script, is one of the official languages in India. It is spoken in many other states than Maharashtra which is a state in western India, whose main city is Bombay, it is there that SHE resides.
The first writings are inscriptions dating from the 10th century, under the influence of two religious sects, which adopt it as a language of preaching. The very first Marathi literature is the Viveksindhu of Mukundraja. In the 13th century, the Jnaneshawari shows the beauty of this literature.
This literature is poetic, devotional and narrative. Until the 17th century, continues the tradition of religious poetry with Vamana, and Raghunath. Sridhar represents a refined poetry, Moropanta, is a scholarly versifier.
The modern period begins with Kesavasuta and other reformer poets. A group of poets, the "Ravikiran mandal", tries to bring poetry back to the expression of everyday life, which leads to the reaction of later poets such as Ravi Anil and Despande. As for lyrical comedies in marathi, they are undoubtedly among the best in India. This poem is in the Marathi language of Maharashtra, and in the devanagari writing system. This official language in India, is also spoken in many other states.
