Shiv Jayanti also known as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Jayanti will be observed on February 19, 2024. The day is celebrated with great zeal and fervour, especially in Maharashtra.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Jayanti marks the birth anniversary of the great Maratha emperor Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The main aim of the day is to honour the great warrior's role in restoring the Maratha Empire and to celebrate his vast legacy.

The celebration of Shiv Jayanti was set by Jyotirao Govindrao Phule, also known as Mahatma Jyotiba Phule, in 1870, and since then, people have been celebrating the day with great zeal. Shivaji Maharaj was born in 1630 in Pune’s Shivneri Fort. The great warrior has earned massive respect not only in Maharashtra but across India because of his rich cultural legacy, forward-thinking and efforts to set India free from foreign invaders.
This year will mark the 394th birth anniversary of the great leader. Shivaji Maharaj not only constructed a well-structured administrative organisation but also made a liberal civil rule for people living in the area.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Jayanti was celebrated in JSPM Hadapsar Campus with great zeal and enthusiasm. Students organize several events to celebrate the occasion. Also on this day, grand processions which include Dhol Pathak, Lezim Pahak, Lahi Kathi were taken out from Satav Nagar to JSPM Campus.

After reaching procession to campus the celebration began with the lighting of a traditional lamp, followed by the singing of devotional songs in praise of the great warrior king.

The highlight of the celebration was a speech delivered by Dr. P. P. Adkar who enlightened the students about the life and achievements of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Principal spoke about the Maratha Empire’s contribution to India’s rich cultural and historical heritage and emphasized the importance of preserving and promoting our country’s legacy.

Overall, the celebration of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Jayanti at JSPM Hadapsar Campus was a grand success. It not only brought the students together but also instilled a sense of pride and respect for the great Maratha warrior king in their hearts.
