There used to be branches in 'Shahiri Kavane', Nagesh Bali, Dnyan Bali, and Nath Sampradai. Their symbols were : 'Jari Zomb', 'Bhagve Zende' (saffron flags), 'Kalgi' and 'Tura'. Such branches and symbols were not present in Sant and Pandit poetry.
Shahir were identified into two types; Turewale and 'Kalgiwale'. Both had the same ultimate objective of 'parbrahma', with the support of 'Dwaita' (Duality). This was done to convince ignorant masses. In Maharashtra means 'Shiv-shakti' Turewale believed in Shiv-shakti by cross examining Kalgi side. In all 82 shahir were listed of which 45 belonged to Turewale and 37 to Kalgiwale sides. Marathwada had 46 shahir according to 'Pratishtn' magazine in 1955.
