Legacy Of Marathas
NaadiJodhidam (Jotish) was written originally in Sanskrit on palm leaves by the great Rishis of ancient India, like Bhrigu, Agasthiya, Kaushika, Vashishtha and others, and it is more popular in South India. His highness Sri. Venkoji Maharaja, descendant of Sivaji Maharaja, established the Maratha rule in Tamilnadu in the year 1676, with Tanjore as their Head Quarters. The control was taken over by the Britishers in 1798 from the Marathas, when Robert Clive was the Governor of Madras Presidency.
The Marathas during their rules were true patrons of Arts, Science, Medicine, Vedas, Astrology etc. The great works of ancient India were all kept in the famous SaraswatiMahal Library at Tanjore and maintained by them. During the reign of the great king Sarabhoji Maharaja, the Sanskrit works, including those relating to Naadi Astrology were translated into old poetic Tamil Language and written on Palm leaves and kept in SaraswathiMahal Library. During the same period, though the whole North India was under the control of Mohammediyans, the great Marathas managed to preserve all such great works in their SaraswathiMahal Library. Thus Naadi Astrology powers a debut of gratitude to the Great Marathas for its existence today.
