Maharashtra, situated at the west of India, has 9.5% of the country’s population and 9.4% of its area. The Sahyadri range of mountains runs parallel and close to the coast of Arabian Sea, and the narrow strip of the land between the sea and the Sahyadri is known as Konkan. To the east of the range stretches the plateau of the Deccan, sloping gently away to form a table land. The Satpuda range of hills that extends along the northern boundary of the state is almost perpendicular to the Sahyadri.
The early history of the great state includes a short history of the name along with the various kingdoms which have been established in the land. Maharashtra, etymologically derived from the word maharathi meaning the great chariot driver, first appeared as it is in the records of the Chinese traveler Huen Tsang. The early inhabitants of Maharashtra consisted of the great fighters who had even named the state as dandakaranya or the jungle which was ruled by kings.
The Chinese traveler who visited Maharashtra about 1350 years back has stated about Maharashtrians, “The people are brave, honest and simple. They are fond of learning. To their benefactors, they are grateful, to their enemies relentlessly. If they are insulted they will avenge”.
