‘Mutiny’ by Marathi Naiks

As politicos try to bag Marathi votes outside Maharashtra, the ‘Marathi Naik’ community in Kerala has threatened to boycott the Lok Sabha elections if their Schduled Tribe status is not restored…

3M Trivia – The ‘Marathi Naik’ community participated in the 1857 National Uprising/ Mutiny and were persecuted by the British after the incident… so they had to flee Maharashtra and settle in the hilly tracts of Karnataka and Kerala!
