(General info only, not included with the print) Malwa is a region in west-central northern India occupying a plateau of volcanic origin in the western part of Madhya Pradesh state. This region had been a separate political unit from the time of the Aryan tribe of Malavas until 1947, when the British Malwa Agency was merged into Madhya Bharat (also known as Malwa Union). Although political borders have fluctuated throughout history, the region has developed its own distinct culture and language.(wikipedia source)
