19th February is the day of Shivjayanti as Chhatrapati Shivaji was born on this date in 1627. We have a lot to learn from the life of this great King , leader and a true warrior . The history is incomplete without the history of Shivaji. He has been a source of inspiration and pride to the past generations and will continue to inspire the future generations as well.
He founded the Hindu Kingdom against all odds fighting the mighty Moghuls thus teaching us to be brave and face the toughest of challenges. He inspired and united the common man to fight against the tyranny of Mughal Ruler Aurangjeb .
His military skills could be compared to those of Napolean – using guerilla warfare tactics and had developed a strong intelligence network and gave equal treatment to the people from all religions and castes .
He always thought ahead of time and was true visionary. His moral virtues were exceptionally high.
Even today he is venerated in India and especially in Maharashtra with awe and admiration and is viewed as a hero of epic proportions.
