*महाराजांबद्द्ल दोन शब्द*

■कुठल्याही कोंबड्या बकऱ्याचा बळी न देता स्वतःचा करंगळी कापून रक्ताचा अभिषेक घालणारा एकमेव राजा.

■शिवाजी महाराजांच्या गडाला कुठल्याही देवाचे नाव नाही गणपतीचे सुद्धा नाही.......

शिवराय कुठेही लिंबू मिरच्या बांधत बसले नाहीत, की देव देवरशी करत बसले नाहीत.

■ज्या मनुस्मृतीने समुद्र ओलांडू नये असे बंधन घातले होते त्यांच्याविरूद्ध शिवाजी महाराजांनी जाऊन समुद्रात आरमार उभारले............

■अमावस्या अशुभ मानली जाते. काही लोकांच्या सांगण्यावरून आपण कुठलेही काम अमावस्येला सुरू करत नाही, पण महाराजांच्या लढाया या अमावस्येच्या राञी व्हायच्या कारण अंधाराचा फायदा घेऊन ते बहूतेक मोहिमा अमावस्येला घेत गनिमी कावा पद्धतीने लढाया करायचे व जिंकायचे.

On the Jayanti of #ShivajiMaharaj I take a look at another side of him, that of an administrator, and ruler. Most of us know about him as a great warrior, but he was an equally great ruler too.
For some one who spent the better time of his life, fighting to build and preserve his empire, and who really had not much formal education, Shivaji built in quite a robust administration and taxation system
Like nearly all great warriors-Napoleon is a consipcuous example-Shivaji was also a great administrator, for the qualities which go to make a capable general are those which are required by the successful organiser and statesman- Rawlinson.

Many a times I hear statements like “#Shivaji has nothing to do with Mumbai”... so is he really from a far away place? @mumbaiheritage #ShivajiMaharaj #ShivJayanti 1/n
#BelieveItOrNot #Shivneri Fort, his birthplace is less than 100 kms from #Mumbai as the crow flies! 2/n
Raigad, his capital and the site of his cremation, is also less than 100kms from #Mumbai!

Chhatrapati #ShivajiMaharaj, the most progressive and sensible rulers in the history of our country. his countless Bravery tales and innumerable victories stories, till date inspires Youth of #Maharashtra.

Here's few thing you should know about the greatest Hindu-Maratha King :
🔸 His name is not derived from Lord Shiva but in fact a regional deity by the name of Shivai. He was given god-like stature for his deeds, not his name.
🔸 He was extremely secular. At a time when all kingdoms were strictly sticking to their religious beliefs and doing away with others, #ShivajiMaharaj was surprisingly very accommodating of all religions.

Had Tarabai not taken charge, Aurangzeb would have snuffed out Maratha rule & the history of India would have been very different

Rani Tarabai, the daughter-in-law of #shivajimaharaj & an indomitable & shrewd queen

One of the grittiest characters in history

Rani Tarabai was also called the ‘rainha dos Marathas’ or the ‘Queen of the Marathas’ by the Portuguese

She was the daughter of Hambir Rao Mohite, Shivaji’s commander-in-chief, and she was married to Shivaji’s younger son Rajaram at the age of eight

After Shivaji’s death, his first son Sambhaji took over the throne. As he was killed,

Rajaram was brought into power. He died an untimely death, leaving behind an heir, Shivaji II, who was only four years old at the time

In his name, Tarabai at the age 25 became the ruler

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).

On the Jayanti of #ShivajiMaharaj I take a look at an often overlooked aspect of his life, his administration. While a lot is known about Shivaji Maharaj’s military conquests and battles, I feel not much focus has been laid on his administration
For some one who spent the better time of his life, fighting to build and preserve his empire, and who really had not much formal education, Shivaji built in quite a robust administration and taxation system.
Like nearly all great warriors-Napoleon is a consipcuous example-Shivaji was also a great administrator, for the qualities which go to make a capable general are those which are required by the successful organiser and statesman- Rawlinson
