Dear friends, It’s a matter of great pride and pleasure for me to talk about Shivaji, a brave Maratha king, also known as Chatrapathi. Shivaji was a born ruler. Shivaji was born in Shivneri on 10th April, 1627 to Jijabai and Shahaji Bhosle. His father Shahaji was a nobleman in the royal court of Bijapur. Shivaji was named so after Lord Shiva of the Hindu mythology as his mother was an ardent Hindu devotee. Since childhood, Shivaji was brave and never feared anything. There were many instances in his childhood that showed he was a born ruler. At the young age of fourteen, he had the dream of building his kingdom. At the age of 20, he took out his very first military attack and captured the Torna Fort of the kingdom of Bijapur. After that, there was no stopping for him and he had a series of triumphs. Shivaji was known for his protective and fatherly attitude towards his citizens. He is remembered till date as a hero who worked for the welfare of his subjects and state. Shivaji breathed his last in 1680 after suffering from fever for three whole weeks.
