निष्चयाचा महामेरू । बहुत जनांसी आधारू ।
अखंड स्थितीचा निर्धारू । श्रीमंत योगी ॥
यशवंत कीर्तिवंत । सामर्थ्यवंत वरदवंत ।
पुण्यवंत नीतिवंत । जाणता राजा ॥
February 19 marks the birthday anniversary of a ruler who carved a niche for himself with his Ganimi Kawa tactics, established the Maratha kingdom and fought Mughals. Shivaji was born in 1627 AD at Shivneri fort in Pune and was named after Goddess Shivai.
Blessed with leadership skills and a born warrior, Shivaji can also be called the proponent of saffron rule. Shivaji was the very embodiment of a born ruler of men as typified in our great Epics. He was the type of the real son of India representing the true consciousness of the nation. It was he who showed what the future of India is going to be sooner or later, a group of independent units under one umbrella as it were, under one supreme imperial suzerainty.”
