This article viewpoint seems heavily biased in favor of the Marathas. (e.g. "treacherously captured" , "rekindled the spirit of valour in the minds of Marathas") (talk) 09:00, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

yea its really bad-- (talk) 22:52, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

It should definitely be marked and re-written by someone knowledgeable so to be objective. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:05, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

Maratha or Marathas[edit]

The article seems to use 'Maratha' and 'Marathas' interchangeably, both being used as a proper noun (singular). This needs to be sorted out. I get the impression that 'Marathas' is not meant as a plural of 'Maratha'. I mention this because I just edited a section of the text by inserting large numbers of missing 'the' words, hopefully in the right context. For instance in English one says 'he went to the Maratha empire' ('the' refers the noun 'empire'), but omits the 'the' when one is refering to a proper noun as in 'he went to Maratha'. However, if Marathas is a plural of Maratha then one would say 'he went to the Marathas', just as one would say 'he went to the Americas'. The 'Mughal' and 'Mughals' case seems clear, with Mughals being a plural of Mughal. Can we have some clarity on this 'Marathas' issue please.1812ahill (talk) 19:22, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Maratha's did not win[edit]

No legitimate source says that the Maratha's won. The wars continued and remained inconclusive according to what I have researched. Xtremedood (talk) 08:29, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
