Please do not feel bad -- Wikipedia is about the whole truth, and we do not take sides. It would be unnatural if, in the border areas, people speaking both languages did not abide. Naturally there are Kannada people in Akkalkot and Marathi people on the other side. Even the Maharashtra government says that lot of Kannada people live in Solapur district. So what? It is natural. It is also natural that some nuts on both sides will want to take territory from the other side. These ravings are lamentable, but since they exist, they should be documented on Wikipedia. These people do not seem to realize that cultural borders cannot be demarcated easily and that the interaction of cultures is what makes for richness in culture. If you hail from the M-K border area, you would probably speak both languages, although Marathi would be your mother-tongue.

A form of Kalakshepa, in which the story teller, usually proficient in Carnatic music, interspaced the main story with music, dance and sub-stories, was also prevalent. This artform was modified and refined during the Maratha rule. Marathas were great supporters of art and culture. Carnatic music flourished and grew during their reign. During the 17th and the 18th century CE, the Marathi Harikatha was introduced in Thanjavur. The Harikatha of Maharashtra was a specific form of spiritual teaching coupled with music, dance and theatrics. The growth of Harikatha was further helped by the Hindu saint Samartha Ramdas Swami established his Matha in 1663 at Thanjavur. His disciples such as Bhimaraja Swami conducted keertans and bhajans in the matha. During the late 17th century, many other Maratha saints established their mathas in Thanjavur, which helped popularise the Harikatha sty... The Marathi Keertan, or Harikatha was of two types: Varkari and Narada. The Varkari style consists of singing various compositions of Marathi saints. These songs were accompanied by explanations of the songs. There was no story telling in this style. The Narada style, which became popular in the Thanjavur court, gave importance to stories from the epics.

The first play in Marathi "Sita Swayamvar" was staged first in Sangli 1843 by Vishnudas Bhave. In this venture, Vishnudas Bhave was fully supported by Rajasaheb Chintamanrao Patwardhan. After the success of the play "Sita Swayamvar" Vishnudas Bhave staged plays on episodes of the Ramayana. He traveled a lot with his troupes for the plays. He also ventured into puppet shows. Vishnudas Bhave died on 9th August 1901. The history of Marathi Theater records that "Bhave produced plays in Marathi with music composed on Karnataki base. His play was much admired by the Governor's Secretary... religious spirit, scientific singing by a sort of chorus in the midst of dialogues by other characters, crude dances and quaint costumes and make-up and certain skillful sword-play were their outstanding qualities.

Dakhani, which started growing under the Bahamani rulers, developed into an independent spoken and literary language during this period by continuously drawing resources from Arabic-Persian, Marathi, Kannada and Telugu. This language later became known as Dakhani Urdu to distinguish it from the North Indian Urdu. The Deccani miniature painting, which flourished in the courts of Ahmadnagar, Bijapur and Golkonda is another major cultural contribution of the Deccan Sultantaes. The architectural splendors of Deccan like Char Minar and Gol Gumbaz belong to this period.

Besides that, these so-called "Sanskritisms" have been modified, often more than once and are unique to the Sinhala language. Is there such a thing called a "Graama Sevakaya" in Hindi/Bengali/Marathi/Urdu/etc? Is there such a thing called a "Pradeshiya Sabha" in Hindi/Bengali/Marathi/Urdu/etc? I would venture and say "no" because these terms are Sinhala and are used in the Sinhala language. They are Sinhala words that have entered Sri Lankan Tamil. So I'm afraid I strongly disagree with you on "taking out" what you call "Sanskritisms." ::::Since I know no Sinhala, I can't comment on whether the words are loan words or inherited words. However, since Ben raised the question, I would like to point out that a "Gram Sevak" (from Sanskrit "Grama Sevaka") is the Hindi name for the secretary attached to a Gram Panchayat. Pradeshiya Sabha is also quite intelligible in Hindi and Marathi, and means State Council or State Assembly. An organisation might, for example, use it in the names of its local chapters. I assume it means Municipal Council in Sinhala.
