Overview: Shrimanyogi

Shrimanyogi is a biographical work on the life and the achievements of the great Maratha king, Chatrapathi Shivaji. Shivaji has been a legendary figure in the Indian history.Shivaji was one of the major influences on the revival of nationalism and Hindu culture during a period when centuries of rule by Muslim invaders had induced a condition of apathy and indifference in the people.Shivaji successfully created a Hindu kingdom during Aurangzeb's rule, and his achievements were many. Over the years, many legends have been added to Shivaji's life, and it is hard to filter out these embellishments and just focus on the facts.The author has done his best to build this book just on facts. And the facts alone are interesting enough to highlight the achievements of this legendary king.Though Shivaji's rise was during the time of Aurangzeb, his main confrontation was with the Sultanate of Adil Shah rather than with the Mughals. Shivaji was a man who built a dynasty starting from nothing. His motivations were always immense pride in his culture and love for his motherland.However, he was not a bigot and treated all his subjects equally well, irrespective of their religion and other divisions. His battles were mostly with Muslim rulers, but he never showed any animosity towards the Muslim inhabitants of his kingdom.Shivaji's period was the height of glory in Maratha history. His achievements served as an inspiration to later generations of nationalists like Bal Gangadhar Tilak. His stories inspired people who were fighting for the country's independence from the British rule.The author has presented Shivaji as he really was, with no embellishments. Shivaji was a dynamic leader, a warrior, and a nobleman. He was religious without being fanatic, he was a believer, but not superstitious, he was courageous but not foolish. He was a visionary who dreamt of building a Hindu kingdom in a region that was surrounded by Muslim dynasties. Yet, he was extremely practical.Shivaj
