Like in any other language Marathi also has many ways to abuse or curse or using swear words. In hindi it is called 
गाली(gAlI). Its plural is गालियां   (gAliyAM)
In Marathi such word is called शिवी(shivI). Its plural is शिव्या (shivyA).
To curse/ To abuse is called as शिवी/शिव्या देणे (shivI/shivyA deNe) or 
शिविगाळ करणे (shivigAL karaNe)

Intention of this lesson is not to teach you Marathi शिव्या (shivyA) but to introduce you to them so that you can be aware not to use them and get alert if someone uses it.
A native Indian will already know this because most of these words are common in Marathi, Hindi and other north Indian dialects.

So this lesson is intended more for non-Indians.
