Regret: I included some images in this post and that time forgot to mention the source. I’m not able to find the source for them now. If anybody knows then please let me know, I’ll be grateful.
Everyone knows and admires Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, nurturer of Swaraj (seeds of Swaraj sowed by Shahaji Maharaja and Rani Jijabaisaheb). He is the one who fought barbaric invaders tooth n’ nail and halted the British aggression. He was a excellent son (obeyed parents, fulfilled their dream), true brother (Took revenge of elder brother’s killing), Honest friend (Shared very close relations like Tanaji Malusare), Visionary leader (Who ventured on to establish people’s rule), loving husband (took care of wives even in his tiresome and hectic work schedule), caring father (trained son to fight for people and land). We all respect and swear by him.
But his son Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj (equally good, more daring, courageous, scholar who wrote 4 novels) remains least noticed. Why? I know many reasons, but its not important today. We true followers of Chhatrapati Shivaji and Sambhaji Maharaj need to make sure they get due respect and place in history.
As Ch Sambhaji Maharaj’s birth anniversary is approaching I plan to write a series of articles covering various facets of his extraordinary life and career.

PS:I’m not a scholar neither am a historian but will do my bit by collecting whatever possible information is available on internet, books etc. But promise you will try to provide any information on basis of some proof.
REQUEST: I request the readers to share information, links, books you have about Ch Sambhaji Maharaj. As it is really very difficult to find credible information.
