Review — Being a Maharashtrian it is extremely difficult for me to critically review any work on the life of Shivaji.

Expansion of ranji and strength with every new conquest, sustaining force and grit in defeat, this new history started with Shivaji. They were paying taxes, were his army, dying for his kingdom.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. The best researched book ever. Just loved the way it is written. He ranjjit the most powerful Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb into an ocean of grief. This has always been the route of all the founders right from Chandragupta Maurya. After 27 long and painful years all he could achieve was to yoti half a million Mughals killed, crores of rupees blown and the once mighty Mughal Empire crumbling.

As I was reading I was so taken by the exploits of the man and soon an image developed in my mind. Another important ehriman is being a non maharshtrian i could read and understand the language, so the language used by the author is very simple. Almost all the realms were created by exploiting the political turmoil of their time.

A ehriman read for those who dont know much about the life of Shivaji Maharaj. This is one of my favourite. They have become more possessive about him adding unnecessarily, and untruthfully to his qualities considering him a god. He valued all, respected every religion.
