काही वरषांपूरवी 'छावा' वाचायला घेतल होतं. पण एका वळणानंतर ते पुढे वाचन केवळ अशकय झालं. या वेळेस मनाचा खूप निरधार करून 'संभाजी' वाचायला घेतल. जो इतिहास वाचायलाच इतकं मन धृढ कराव लागतं, ते आयुषय खर-खुर जगणारे संभाजी आणि तयांचे आपत खुठलया अगनिदिवयातून गेले असतील? किती आणि कसे पांग फ़ेडनार आपण या 'धरमवॆराचे'?

Hats off to Vishwas Patil for providing such a wonderful novel revealing the facts about the great Maratha warrior Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj.
Every human being should read this book, not because it’s a story of the Great Warrior Shambhaji, but to see how a person can bear the pain and grief for his motherland. This book tells us about the various sides of a true King and a Great Warrior. We all agree that Shivaji Maharaj did amazing work for Maharashtra and the Marathas; however prominently Sh

This is a brilliantly written narrative upon the life of adult Sambhaji. There are too many detractors of Sambhaji, who blame him with the ruin of the Maratha Swarajya created by his father, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. This book, written after thorough historical research by the author serves as a myth buster, at the same time being a fabulous read as a novel.

Highly recommended for people interested in Marathi history.

The only downside of my experience of my person experience with the book was

The book will left you in anguish, disappointment, anger, love and respect which are aspect of Sambhaji maharaj's life. If you are one of the unlucky persons having prejudice about Sambhaji Maharaj then grab a copy. This book is capable to bust down all your misconceptions.
Why Sambhaji teamed up with mughals? Was he a 'wasted' person? Was he really a good administrator, a fierce warrior or a womeniser and alcoholic ?
What is the position and significance of Sambhaji in maratha history also in Ind

Very good book on Sambhaji Maharaj. Though the book makes you question the choice of Shivaji Maharaj's Eight Ministers (Shivaji Maharaj was a very able leadership that Maharashtra or rather India has got. He was a man of vision. The possibility of grabbing power after Shivaji Maharaj by his eight ministers can not be ruled out. But by calling his men corrupt one simply questions shivaji Maharaj's decisions) this book makes you change your prejudices about Sambhaji Maharaj. Indeed a must read nov ...more

Must read book for those who love and worship Shivaji maharaj. Sambhaji( son of Shivaji) had a political carrier of about 9 years and has faught with the most powerful emperor of that times Aurangazeb. His war tactics were unquestionable which led Moughals to fight for 6years to conquer the very first fort which they attacked after entering Maharashtra. Sambhaji's bravery and intelligence made Aurangazeb to litrally cry and beg for atleast some success in his mission in front of almighty. Atlast ...more

Somewhere i had read before that Sambhaji Maharaj gained more glory and following by the sacrifice he made.. his martyr in unparalleled by Any other Maratha king.. Must read novel on a king who just ruled for 9 years, and keeps on you thinking that the course of Maratha history could have been different if he had got some more time to rule with some good people alongside, especially his mother, the beloved queen of Raje Shivaji, Yesubai..
