Sanjay Dalmia shared his opinion about Maharashtra and its people.

“We all know Marathas were great warriors and rulers, Chattrapati Shivaji being the greatest of all. There is much more to Marathas and Maharashtrian achievements which not everyone knows. They are genius who have created milestones in various subjects including art, culture, politics, science etc", he said.

Dalmia also highlighted that the first plane was created and flown by an Indian pioneer Shivkar Bapuji Talpade, a Maharashtrian at Chowpatty several years before Wright Brothers.

Chief Guest Shaina NC, in his speech said, “While people from Maharashtra have been making the nation proud by creating excellence in various walks of life, we must also acknowledge that some of the best politicians of India have been from Maharashtra.”
