  4. It is one thrilling ride through history and mystery !What is the most charming facet of the book is its sensitivity. The way Ranjit Desai handles his pen is definitely as worthy as how the great Shivaji would have had handled his mighty sword.This is an ode to the magnum-opus called Shivaji, not just as a king and a warrior but also as a person !

  5. If you have been desperate to read about Shivaji and had trouble reading refined Marathi then this might be your best hope. This is not really a biography but more a dramatized presentation of Shivaji's life. I have enjoyed reading this book, mostly because I had wanted to read about him for a long time. If you are well conversant with Marathi then you should read the original "Shrimanyogi" by Ranjit Desai. This book is a translation and doesn't really live up to the original book. The translati [...]

  6. I recently completed reading this book. I found it very beautiful and more importantly the feelings erupt from us while reading it.

Another important feature is being a non maharshtrian i could read and understand the language, so the language used by the author is very simple. So my request to those people who are non maharashtrian [...]

  14. There are various books in marathi on Shivaji, no doubt his life is full of all thats required for a novel that there is hardly anyone who wont like to write about him.have gone through few of such books on him already, as compared to "Raja Shivchhatrapati" by Babasaheb Purandare,felt this is not that elaborative & detailed.ough its rich enough to portray the great kings life n almost all aspects in it

  15. Wonderful Journey through life of Shivaji MaharajA fabulous read about life of Shivaji Maharaj, depicted with every minute detail of his personal life, warfare, his bonding with subordinates. A must read for those who dont know much about the life of Shivaji Maharaj.
