Chhatrapati Shivaji - The Greatest Man

 Hi All,


Today, 19th February on the auspicious occasion of birth anniversary of The Great Chhatrapati Shivaji maharaj,  I am trying to write a few lines here. 

Shivaji maharaj is the warrior son of India. He was born in Pune in Shivneri district and belonged to the Maratha clan. His life was highly influenced from the teachings of Ramayan and Mahabharat. His mother, the respected Jijabai played a major role to teach him and carved him as not only a great warrior, king but also a GREAT MAN.

He created a loyal army and to our surprise even the Muslims too were into his loyal army. Around the world a image has been created that Hindu and Muslims don’t go well but deep down we all know that we have been deliberately divided in the recent years of this decade. Shivaji maharaj never discriminated Muslims because he wasn’t fighting the religion but the Mughals and their intentions to conquer Swaraj. There were many loyal Muslims into his army holding various ranks. He was literally the King of his Swaraj..The Janata Raja.

I would also love to mention that many armies are defamed for looting the people and raping the women. History has shown us instances where the Hindu women have taken there own lives to save themselves from these invaders. But, Shivaji Maharaj was one and the only one who has created such a great legacy of people with whom even the women from Moghul clan would knew they are safe and nobody will  dare to touch them .

Shockingly none of my NCERT books have sufficiently taught me about him. Sad reality. It needs to change. Unfortunately People like me are not given the knowledge of the Naval father of India.The forts and bridges built under him are still rock solid to date but if we go and check the bridges built by the so called great British are dilapidated.

 The more I read about him the more I realised how little I know. Indians really need to rethink about whom should we call “great” The Great Akbar or The Great Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj


Jai Bhavani 

Jai Shivaji
