About Us

History – A single word which has so much to tell us, bravery of our people, their sacrifice, their knowledge, their thoughts and many things to learn from. We took this opportunity to learn, understand, remember, take inspiration and work.

Few came together for a cause, few more joined and few more ….it all started on facebook as a group ….2 years passed, 2 years of  Pride, Joy, Devotion, Faith and of numerous valuable experiences and over this period of 2 years , facebook page and a facebook group evolved into a family of thousands, a family Taking inspiration from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, moving ahead with his noble thoughts  , remembering the history, paying the tribute to legends, providing a hand to needy ones in society, making the society aware of our great history and learning a lot from it to build a bright future….

Gadwat is a family of people studying, following and learning the principles and thoughts of the Visionary King Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. We call it a family because over a period of time it all went beyond just a facebook group or page; we started working together for a common cause with love and brotherhood….a relation greater than blood relations.

And It gives us immense pleasure and pride to announce that now onwards Gadwat remains not only a group But our Gadwat family is now a registered organization.

While on this journey, we had experienced lots of Ups and Downs, we came across many good and bad experiences. Good experiences gave the momentum to our cause; bad made us aware of difficulties and showed us the way ahead. The faith, the urge towards our glorifying history and forts is the common thing or feeling in between all of us here. This urge, this faith, this love was seen from the very first Kalavantin trek to recently completed 3 day trek from fort Panhala to Fort Vishalgad…

Many many experiences and all were inspiring…

Every event has its own memory deep in heart. But this all achievements or a liitle efforts towards our Motherland, towards our King, have became possible because of the unity among all of us here. To oppose an individual is easy, but when it becomes a family, no one dares. We will continue to be a family, we will continue our work for a good cause.
