Shivaji is not just a "Maratha" icon but a pan-Indian symbol of resistance to foreign rule. Little known fact that 20th century Bengali revolutionaries fighting British occupation drew direct inspiration from him 1/n

This is why Aurobindo & Barin Ghosh had originally planned to headquarter their movement in a Bhawani temple on the banks of the Narmada (secretly supported by the Gaekwars) 2/n
Yes. His iconic visit to the ruins of Hampi of Vijayanagara empire with his father was the turning point in our history. He was shaken by the mindless destruction islamists brought upon Hampi. There he decided to pluck out one islamist at a time. #ShivajiJayanti #shivajimaharaj
Did you miss the awesome Google Doodle for Chhatrapati Shivaji Jayanti? Of course you did! There isn't any! Pretty convenient to forget this given all the remotely relevant stuff that finds its way into Google Doodles.

Bengali writer Sharadindu Bandopadhyay wrote a series of delightful 'Sadashiv' stories which feature Shibba Raja as the glittering hero the little protagonist looks up to. Shivaji has been a hero across the length and breath of India
Many Bengali names including my uncle is named after " Shivaji". Sibaji as we say.
Sir , please address him as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Thanks.
Sir bengali revolutionary not only were inspired by Shivaji they preached him honored him and even celebrated his festivals.. pic.twitter.com/LiJIlBVt4W
Let us work to realise Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj's dream of a strong, prosperous and just Bharat. "The glory of this Mudra of Shahaji鈥檚 son Shivaji (Maharaj ) will grow like the first day moon .It will be worshiped by the world & it will shine only for well being of people." pic.twitter.com/ykHxpaPrJE
There would have been no India left had it not been for this man. Republic of India is a successor state of maratha confideracy. That is why Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is the greatest Indian of the last thousand years.#ShivajiJayanti
He is last true symbol of Hinduism. India wants more.
Marathas got minm support at battle of Panipat and lost million innocent lives including women children ..no one from north Shoor Veers Jats Sikhs they had helped in past came to their rescue in ambitious war? A Disease that Indians fail2 fight under one flag ever,never ever?

Just started reading a book on this legendary warrior.
Jadav university in Bengal. In name of Jadhavas. Rajputs & Gujratis having problem to give chouthai of their income to Maratha ruler for the protection from cruel emperor from Delhi Saltant. But they don't had any shame left for Roti-beti with Mughals..
Our freedom fighters fought as one . Pity we now have started thinking in regional lines :(
Very well said Mr. sanyal!馃憤 @AkbAsis
The great Shivaji Maharaj is now Namo
Yes Chatrapathi Sivaji, Krishna devaraya, Harsha, Chandragupta maurya, Rajaraja chola, vermas all fought and became pan india. You still see maratha influence in TN.
Even the world war generals , studied his warfare tactics. Pioneer of guerrilla warfare
Sir guerrilla warriors all over the world have taken inspiration from Shivaji Maharaj. Jai Bhawani Jai Shivaji Jai Maharashtra Jai Hind 馃毄馃毄馃毄
I bow to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj on his Jayanti. #ShivajiJayanti
Please mention the name of Kannadiga pride Kittur Veera Rani Chennamma who saved Shivaji during his escape from Muslim invasion. #jaiKarnataka #JaiHind
Absolutely right. Shivaji is the lion of every Indian who looks for flames of brilliance during the 1000 year lethargy. If India had not conceived such sons, India would have probably gone the way of Europe and Africa,
You should definitely write textbooks for NCERT so that coming generations doesn't keep on praising likes of Tipu Sultan like me before reading ocean of churn
But @vsengupta will tell you about how Bengalis feared the Marathas

It's Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The respect he gets here, the connection differs from north India
Whole Hindu community from Kashmir to kanyakumari vowes to #ShivajiMaharaj It is sad that kids don't get to read his bio in schools @BJP4India @narendramodi pls bring Maharaj bio in school curriculum
Though I appreciate the spirit and the integrity with which Shivaji Maharaj had fought, I don't exactly think Mughals were foreigners. They made India home. One can complain about the quality of governance, but if someone makes this nation home then they are not foreigners.
Still many in Bengal name their sons after him ... "Shivaji " ... I think that itself reflect their reverence n affection for Chhatrapati Shivaji 馃檹馃檹馃檹
..."Hindavi Swarajya"...that would be better than mere foreign rule..those were the great man's very words...

It is in the order of kings to attack other kings or to subdue them. Sometimes they plunder and loot. Kings become kings either by dynasty or by war, not by election. If we now make some kings nationalistic and pan-Indian, will the other kings be antinational and regional?
Shivaji Maharaj built first pan Indian national army, there people who spoke region languages in army, navy was built with Indian and European designers and navigators. This tradition of merit was kept live till 1818.
#ShivajiMaharaj is the Epitome of Indian Thug 馃敨(鈥鈥煍) life.
Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is the founder of HINDAVI SWARAJYA , he wants freedom from Muslim Invaders
Shivaji the great Hindu warrior was a turned out a thought in Maharashtra in later years. The dynasty followed by him was so strong that if "Jaichands and Mirzafars" would have elemintaed in time then British would not have ruled India and indian history would have been different
Shivaji never called his rule as Maratha kingdom. He called it as Hindavi Swaraj. He was far ahead of times and beyond the comprehension of local vassals of Adilshah, Mughals and Nizamshah.
Read your book - Life over two beers. Bought it in Delhi airport before boarding Emirates. Later chapters became vague. Please write a sequel to Ocean of Churn. Would like to know about history which was not covered by Oceans of Churn.
Amazing thread about Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj 馃憤馃徎
Interesting thread. 馃憣馃憣
Mughals were not foreigners by that time. Shah Jahan was 90 percent Indian
Jay Bhavani Jay Shivaji 馃檹馃徎
Not only was Shivaji a pan Indian symbol of resistance but also of governance and development.
Very informative thread on Shivaji Maharaj. Something even Marathi people like me also didn't know..
His life story has inspired many, I being one of them.
