Namaskar,
 

Shivaji was a military genius who built an empire from scratch but it is for sparking a national revival that he should be remembered.

 

Shivaji, the Maratha warrior who established a modern and powerful Hindu kingdom in south-western India from 1642-1680, is undoubtedly the greatest Indian of the modern era. To understand Shivaji’s importance in Indian history, especially his role in rekindling the spirit of Indian nationhood, one must recognise that he built his empire against impossible odds.
