Our great holy homeland that is India -Bharath- was fragmented
Beyond recognition and the united India that we enjoy
Today is the result of noble and hard work put in by stalwart
And patriots like Gandhiji, Patelji Nehruji and their colleagues!
Seventeenth September today is Marathwada Liberation Day.
Youth of the Nation might not have heard of such a term in their lives!
Maharashtra today’s one of the premier states was not a part of India!
Marathwada Liberation Day, celebrated in Maharashtra
Marking the anniversary of Marathwada integration
With India when the Indian military, invaded State of Hyderabad,
Defeated he Nizam to merge Hyderabad into the Indian Union
On Seventeenth September Nineteen Forty Eight, staggering thirteen
Months after Indian independence.India gained independence
From British on Fifteenth August After the partition princely states
Had the option to join either India or Pakistan
The ruler of Hyderabad Osman Ali Khan decided to be independent.
Appealed to the United Nations that his princely state,
Including Marathwada And Telangana regions, be granted statehood.
During the revolt Marathwada Saw major uprisings against the Razakars .
Swami Ramanand Tirth, Govindbhai Shroff, Vijayendra Kabra and
Ramanbhai Parikh and P H Patwardhan.
The Indian government appeared anxious to avoid a “Balkanization”
Of the new country and was determined to integrate Hyderabad into Indian Union.
Amidst the unrest the Indian government launched a military operation
Named Operation Polo which it termed a “police action”. The operation
Itself took five days, in which the Razakars were defeated
And Hyderabad was annexed.
