Mrutyuche aavhaan peluni, toch varasa aamhaala dila l
Shivrayaancha Shambhu chaava, Hindu mhanuni amar jahala ll
Coming from the same legacy that confronted death,
Shivaji’s son Shambhu, became immortal as a Hindu.
Quite often, growing up in the shadow of a banyan tree can be quite inhibiting, however much you grow, and you shall always look small against the banyan. In a sense that was what happened to Sambhaji, the son of Shivaji Maharaj.

#TodayInHistory Sambhaji Maharaj is coronated as Chattrapati on this date at Raigad Fort in 1681. Thread on a hero, who never really got his due and was rather treated harshly by historians.

The great Sambhaji Maharaja was the ruler who chose death over conversion.🔱
He was the eldest son of chattrapati Shivaji Maharaja. He knew more than 13 languages till the time he was 15. He wrote Sanskrit book "Budh Bhushanam" at the age of 15.
The Mughals were the staunchest enemies of the Marathas during Sambhaji’s reign. One of the first major actions taken by Sambhaji against the Mughals, was when his forces attacked Burhanpur, a wealthy Mughal city in Madhya Pradesh.

The Marathas under Sambhaji also came into conflict with the Abyssinian Siddi rulers who wished to acquire control over the Konkan coast. Sambhaji fought them, restricting their presence to the island of Janjira, located in the present-day Raigad district of Maharashtra.

Sambhaji Maharaj in Marathi is also known as Chhava,which means Lion Cub.
• He was a scholar of Sanskrit and eight other languages!
• He valiantly faced the 8 lakh strong terrorist army of Aurangzeb and defeated several Mughal chieftains in the battlefield forcing to retreat!
• Because of this, Aurangzeb remained engaged in battles in Maharashtra,
If Sambhaji Maharaj would have arrived at settlement with Aurangzeb and accepted his proposal of being a tributary prince,then within the next 2 or 3 years Aurangzeb would have captured North India again.
•Because of Sambhaji Maharaj and other Maratha’s struggle, Aurangzeb was stuck in battles in South India for 27 years.
This helped in the establishment of new Hindu kingdoms in provinces of Bundelkhand, Punjab and Rajasthan.
• This can be considered as his greatest achievement!
