Marathi is an Indo-Aryan language predominantly spoken by Marathi people in the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is the official language of Maharashtra, and a co-official language in Goa state and the territory of Damaon, Diu & Silvassa. It is one of the 22 scheduled languages of India, with 83 million speakers as of 2011. Marathi ranks 10th in the list of languages with most native speakers in the world. Marathi has the third largest number of native speakers in India, after Hindi and Bengali. The language has some of the oldest literature of all modern Indian languages. The major dialects of Marathi are Standard Marathi and the Varhadi dialect. 

Indian languages, including Marathi, that belong to the Indo-Aryan language family are derived from early forms of Prakrit. Marathi is one of several languages that further descend from Maharashtri Prakrit. Further change led to the Apabhra?sa languages like Old Marathi; however, this is challenged by Bloch (1970), who states that Apabhra?sa was formed after Marathi had already separated from the Middle Indian dialect. 


The earliest example of Maharashtri as a separate language dates to approximately 1st century BCE: a stone inscription found in a cave at NaneghatJunnar in Pune district had been written in Maharashtri using Brahmi script. A committee appointed by the Maharashtra State Government to get the Classical status for Marathi has claimed that Marathi existed at least 2,300 years ago alongside Sanskrit as a sister language. Marathi, a derivative of Maharashtri, is probably first attested in a 739 CE copper-plate inscription found in Satara. Several inscriptions dated to the second half of the 11th century feature Marathi, which is usually appended to Sanskrit or Kannada in these inscriptions. The earliest Marathi-only inscriptions are the ones issued during the Shilahara rule, including a c. 1012 CE stone inscription from Akshi taluka of Raigad district, and a 1060 or 1086 CE copper-plate inscription from Dive that records a land grant (agrahara) to a Brahmin. A 2-line 1118 CE Marathi inscription at Shravanabelagola records a grant by the Hoysalas. These inscriptions suggest that Marathi was a standard written language by the 12th century. However, there is no record of any literature produced in Marathi until the late 13th century.




Clues to read Marathi words in Tamil;

Letter ‘k’= ‘v’; ‘v’ = ‘k’. 

Add vowels then and there. 

Add letter ‘m’ and letter ‘n’ then and there. 

Letter ‘p’ and letter ‘s’ can be retained/ deleted /added or exchanged.

A letter can be read more than once.

If a letter occurs consecutively more than once the letter has to be read only   once.

If we jumble the letters of a given Marathi word a Tamil word can be arrived.
