“That day Shivaji just didn’t chop of my fingers but also chopped off my pride. I fear to meet him even in my dreams.”
“Is there no man left to defeat Shivaji in my kingdom??”
-Frustrated Begum Ali Adilshah.
“From Kabul to Kandahar my Taimur family created the Mogul Sultanate. Iraq, Iran, Turkistan and in many more countries my army defeated ferocious warriors. But in India Shivaji put brakes on us. I spent my maximum energy on Shivaji but could not bring him to his knees.
-Aurangzeb (After Shivaji’s death)
“Netaji, your country does not require any Hitler to throw out British. All you need to teach is Shivaji’s history.”
“Had Shivaji been born in England, we would not only have ruled earth but the whole Universe.”
“Had Shivaji lived for another ten years, the British would not have seen the face of India.”
— A British Governer
_If India needs to be made independent then there is only one way out, ‘Fight like Shivaji’.”
–Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose
“Shivaji is just not a name, it is an energy source for Indian youth, which can be used to make India free.”
“Had Shivaji been born in America, we would nomenclated him as SUN.”
The famous war of Umberkhind is mentioned in the Guinness Book of World Records:
“The 30,000 strong army of Kartalab Khan from Uzbekistan was defeated by mere 1000 Mawalas of Shivaji. Not a single Uzbeki was left alive to return back home.”
Shivaji was King of International fame
In span of 30 yrs of his career he fought with only two Indian Warriors well known all the others were outsiders.
Shivaji was a King of International fame. In the span of 30 yrs of his career he fought with only two Indian warriors. All the others were outsiders.
- Shahista Khan, who feared Shivaji even in his dreams was King of Abu Taliban and Turkistan.
- Behlol Khan Pathan, Sikandar Pathan, Chidar Khan Pathan were all warrior sardars of Afghanistan.
- Diler Khan Pathan was the great warrior of Mangolia. All of them bit dust in front of Shivaji.
- Sidhhi Jowhar and Salaba Khan were Iranian warriors, who got defeated by Shivaji.
Sidhhi Jowhar later planned a sea attack. In response Shivaji raised a navy, the first Indian Navy. But before accomplishing the task Shivaji left this world. (He was poisoned.)
In 17th century in Europe a famous and leading newspaper by name “London Gazette”, mentions Shivaji as the “The King of India”, but unfortunately his untimely death at young age changed the pages of history books.
Google “Shivaji, the Management Guru.” It’s a full subject in Boston University. So much respect has been shown by many for an Indian Hindu king and whereas our first prime minister, Jawahalal Nehru mentioned him as a dacoit.
Shivaji had a flawless moral character. He punished one of his sardars even after and in spite of winning a battle because he presented him with extraordinarily beautiful wife of defeated enemy king.
Shivaji recalling his mother said, ” Had my mother been as beautiful as you, I too would be a handsome man”. He lets her go with respect and wealth with army to escort.
Jijamata, Shivaji’s mother, was so overjoyed upon hearing this news that on his return to Rajmahal she performed an Aarti of her son Shivaji.
Whereas in Boston University, has full Subject on Shivaji, “the Management Guru”. Our own NCERT has only a few lines on this great Hindu king and several pages devoted to “Jihadi cruel Aurangzeb”.
Nehru out of his extraordinary love for Muslims didn’t allow glorification of “Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj”
He felt that it may not be liked by Muslims but the fact is that Shivaji’s many a divisions we’re led by Muslim Sardars and they loved and respected him immensely.
The foreign educated and half educated Mr. J.L. Nehru(read Subramaniam Swamy on how Nehru managed to pass law on grace marks in England) never knew proper history and his book the discovery of India is so biased about Indians.
Yet, we Indians know so little about him….. what a pity…. at least let us make our future generation to know about this great INDIAN HINDU KING!
