Nehruji called Maharaj “LOOTERU YODDHA” & was shown black flags by Maharashtra; his stubborn stand lead to 106 hutatmas martyred for Samyukta Maharashtra movement, whose Smruti Din it’s today🙏😢

Recall this,Uddhavji?😢…
How was the #SamyuktaMaharashtra Samiti born?

Who was responsible for the deaths of 106 hutatmas fighting for a UNITED Maharashtra?

Who insulted Maharaj & disregarded feelings of Marathi Manoos?

Who’s responsible for creation of Shiv Sena?

Listen to Bhau Torsekarji👇🏻👇🏻
What’s reaction of Uddhav ji to RaGa INSULTING #VeerSavarkar ji?

He says - We disagree with him

Is that what Balasaheb Thackeray said when Mani Shankar Aiyer insulted Savarkarji?

Is that what #ShraddhaWalkar’s father would say?

That we DISAGREE with #AftabPoonawalla ?🤨

Bhawanrao 'Balasaheb' Pantpratinidhi (1868-1951) who ruled Aundh in #Maharashtra was an unusual king. His work at reforming criminals & convicts inspired V.Shantaram's acclaimed ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ (1957). Balasaheb was born on 24 October 1868
#history #Marathi #films #art
Unlike rulers who tried to cling to power even when the end of British rule was evident, #BalasahebPantpratinidhi handed over the reins of the state to the people much earlier in an experiment inspired by #MahatmaGandhi. He also helped freedom fighters & revolutionaries.
In a sense, #BalasahebPantpratinidhi was among the reformist kings who tried to birth welfare states in colonial India. He was also associated with one of the most popular forms of exercises—the suryanamaskars.

Thread: Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is a symbol of resistance towards tyrannical regimes. He was a rallying point for nationalists after the partition of Bengal in 1905. The 'Shivaji Utsav' tradition struck roots in Bengal in 1902

#ShivajiMaharaj #LokmanyaTilak #history
because of Sakharam Ganesh Deuskar. He was a Maharashtrian settled in Bengal. Deuskar taught in a school at Deoghar & was part of a revolutionary group set up by Rajnarayan Basu, the intellectual & grandfather of Aurobindo & Barindra Ghosh
Deuskar was the first to write about #ChhatrapatiShivajiMaharaj & Peshwa Bajirao-I in Bengali, detailing their bravery & exploits. His 'Shivajir Mahatva' was republished as 'Shivajir Diksha' in 1904.

Did you know?

Shahu Sambhaji Raje Bhosale (or Shahuji) (1682–1749 CE) was the 5th Chatrapati of the Maratha Empire created by his grandfather, #ChhatrapatiShivajiMaharaj

Surprising little is known about this Great Chatrapathi who ruled for a long 42 years and...
...under his rule the Maratha Empire spread North, East and South.

Shahu was the son of Chatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj and his queen,Yesubai.After the torture and barbaric execution of his father at the hands of the Mughals,Shahu and his mother were taken away as prisoners by them.
Shahu was therefore raised in Mughal captivity. He was released and fought a civil war with his Aunt Queen Tarabai to establish his Kingdom in Satara.

Shahu was a excellent judge of character and a benevolent king.

थोडंस संदर्भासहित बोलूया. आपल्या इतिहासकारांनी जे लिहून ठेवलंय जो शोध घेतलाय त्याबद्दल नितांत आदर आहेच. मी कुठेही त्यांचा अनादर करत नाहीय पण ह्या पोस्टमुळे कदाचित अस वाटू शकतं म्हणून लिहितोय कारण ते सगळेच मला कायम वंदनीय आहेत आणि राहतील.
एक भयंकर रात्र आणि त्यात फक्त चिखलात रुतत जाणारे पाय आणि जिवाच्या आकांतने ते ओढट्झ काटे तुडवत विशाळगडाच्या दिशेने धावणारे ते स्वराज्य वेडे. खुद्द राजे सिद्दीच्या वेढ्यातून निसटले. कसे? आषाढातल्या पावसाने आपली जादू दाखवली त्यात राजांचा धूर्तपणा कामी आला
राजे पन्हाळ्यावरून निसटले आणि विशाळगडावर जाऊन पोहोचले सोबत कोण कोण होते तर नागव्या तलवारी परजून उभे असलेले बांदल- बाजी, फुलाजी. का? कारण त्यांनाच ती वाट माहिती होती. नजरबाज जागोजागी पेरले होते. सोबत कडाडणारी वीज पुढचा रस्ता दाखवीत होती.

#Thread on the Council of Ministers of Chhatrapatī Śivājī Mahārāj - The Aṣṭapradhāna Maṇḍaḻa

The Aṣṭapradhāna Maṇḍaḻa was the 'Cabinet of Eight Ministers' of Hindavī Swarājya

#Hindutva #AdministrativeHistory #chhatrapatishivajimaharaj Image
Chhatrapatī Śivājī Mahārāj sought to modernise & formalise the governance of the Hindavī Swarājya.

Feudalism was rampant, which was reined in with the wise *separation of the revenue-collection, & military roles* of the administration.

#Feudalism ImageImage
The Aṣṭapradhāna Maṇḍaḻa was formalised at the time of coronation, although, there exist instances where Chhatrapatī Śivājī used to consult several such ministers on earlier important occasions as well.

#Thread on genealogy of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj

This thread will investigate into the myth, popularised by Jadunath Sarkar:- 'Genealogy of Shivaji Maharaj was fabricated for Coronation'

Pic 1: Jadunath Sarkar used 'Shivdigvijay' as primary source, which he himself considered it as 'unreliable and imaginary'!

Pic 2: A letter written by Jadunath Sarkar about his opinion about Shivdigvijay.

Pic 3: Surendra Nath Sen also questioning Shivdigvijay's credibility.
This is the genealogy of Chh.Shivaji Maharaj from his father's side. He is said to be descendant from Mewar Sisodiya.

🚩#Thread: Shrimant Thorle Bajirao: The Expansionist Peshwa🚩

I pay my humble tributes to one of India’s greatest cavalry generals, a man who fought 41 battles and is reputed to have lost none, on his 320th Birth Anniversary.


The death of Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj’s first #Peshwa & Bajirao’s father, Balaji Vishwanath left the #Chhatrapati in doubt. Several of his advisors advised him not to handover the premiership to Bajirao.

From a very young age, #Bajirao used to accompany...

...his father on expeditions & diplomatic missions. Hence, Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj was convinced that Bajirao was the right person to overthrow the Nizam.

On 17th April, 1720, a 19-year-old Bajirao became the Peshwa of the #MarathaEmpire.

The slant-history writing of #Leftist Historians has portrayed many #Hindu Kings and Generals in a negative manner.

One such General was Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj’s #PeshwaBajirao Ballal - one of the finest cavalry generals in the history of India.

(1/17) Image
The 2015 #Bollywood movie #BajiraoMastani too portrayed him as a ‘mentally unstable lover’.

Is Bajirao only limited to Mastani? Definitely not. So, who was Mastani? Mastani was the daughter of King Chhatrasal of #Bundelkhand.

The name of Bundelkhand is also found in..

(2/17) Image
...the Puranas, Dasharna Desh, a region famous for its gem mines.

Mastani was very beautiful. She is described as such, but there is no mention of the red color of the neck while eating Paan, as often rumoured by several people. She came into Peshwa’s life after 1729.

समर्थ रामदास स्वामी यांच्या बद्दल काही महत्त्वाची माहिती. 🙏🙏
समर्थांचे मूळ नाव म्हणजे नारायण सूर्याजी ठोसर. त्यांचा जन्म जालना जिल्ह्यातील जांब या गावी झाला. अगदी बालपणापासूनच ते रामाचे आणि हनुमानाचे उपासक होते.
#समर्थ_रामदास #स्वराज्य #samarth_ramdas #sajjangad #Maharashtra Image
श्रीरामांच्या प्रति त्यांची भक्ती पाहून लोकांनी त्यांना रामदास हे नाव दिले. किशोर वयातच त्यांनी संसाराचा त्याग करून नाशकाची वाट धरली. पुढील १२ वर्षे त्यांनी रामाची उपासना केली. बालपणापासूनच त्यांना कठोर व्यायामाची आवड होती. नित्य व्यायामाचा नेम ते कधी चुकवत नसत.
त्यांनी बलदंड अशी शरीरयष्टी कमावली होती. इ.स. १६३२ मधे त्यांनी भारत भ्रमण करण्यासाठी महाराष्ट्र देश सोडला. त्यांनी त्यांच्या अध्यात्मिक प्रवासाला सुरुवात केली. पुढील १२ वर्ष त्यांनी भारतात लोकांची अवस्था कशी आहे ह्याची पाहणी केली.

#PanhalaFort is located in Panhala, 20 km northwest of Kolhapur, Maharashtra .Due to its strategic location, it was centre of several skirmishes in Deccan involving the Marathas, the Mughals and the British East India Company, the most notable being Battle of Pavan Khind.

After the #AgrimaJoshua incident, most of my #NorthIndian friends (some are left-leaning) mocked me for criticising her & asked me what’s the big deal in addressing him as ‘Shivaji’.

This #Thread is for all of them who don’t know much about #ChhatrapatiShivajiMaharaj.

Around 230 BCE, #Maharashtra came under the rule of the #Satvahana dynasty for 400 years.

It was also ruled by the Western Satraps, the #Guptas, Gurjaras-Pratiharas, Vatakas, Kadambas, Chalukyas, #Rashtrakutas and the Western #Chalukyas before finally, the #Yadava Rule.

In short, #Maharashtra was ruled by #Hindu Kings.

Unfortunately, in the early 14th century, the Yadava Dynasty was overthrown by the Islamic Invader #AlauddinKhilji, who was then, the Sultan of #Delhi. This marked the beginning of #Islamic Rule in Maharashtra.

Remembering the great #BajiprabhuDeshpande on his death anniversary. (14-07-1660)

The one such brave heart who selflessly sacrificed his life to save life of his king Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

With a huge call of "Jai Bhavani" he left the earthly abode. @Panipat_1761
#BajiprabhuDeshpande volunteered to hold the pursuing Jihadis at the pass with a 300 Marathas, so that Shivaji Maharaj could proceed on to the safety of Vishalgad fort. 

Shivaji Maharaj proceeded with a heavy heart with the rest of 300 Marathas. @sambhashan_in
It was agreed that 3 cannon shots would be fired as a signal to Baji & that #ChhatrapatiShivajiMaharaj had reached their destination safely

And here at Ghod Kind the brave Marathas faught like tigers to their war cry: HAR HAR MAHADEV. It was a bloody battle by all accounts.

Since today is the day of #ShivajiMaharaj's coronation and becoming #ChhatrapatiShivajiMaharaj, tempted to do a thread on his Madras/Chennai connection.
So, as we know #ShivajiMaharaj's coronation was held in a glorious ceremony on 6 June 1674. This was important as without the ceremony, Shivaji did not hold any "kingly" title.
After his coronation, Shivaji became #ChhatrapatiShivajiMaharaj. He also was given the titles of Shakakarta (Creator of an era) and Haindhava Dharmoddhaaraka (Protector of the Hindu Dharma).
