My dear friend @deepak94, Maharashtra is a heritage in itself. Earlier, both Maharashtra and Gujarat were one state, so perhaps you will find the lifestyle of Gujarat and Maharashtra to be similar and old buildings will also be built in the same style, but here only you will find a change in the language. My friend Maharashtra is really very beautiful. I have seen it only in films but I hope to see Maharashtra closely.
