Although the Maratha capitals fell to the Khiljis, the regional lords held their power-base and influence and a branch of the Yadavas continued to rule parts of Konkan and Khandesh regions of Maharashtra for a century thereafter, till Over time, an understanding evolved between the sultanate and the local regional lords and their erstwhile master the Yadavas; the Yadavas became a vassal of Bahamani rulers. Inthe Bahamani sultanate broke into five kingdoms each called a Shahi. Inthe allied Deccan sultanates vanquished the Vijayanagara Empire at Talikota.
ON the 10th of April,was born Shivaji the liberator of the Maratha nation. His father, Shahaji Bhosle, claimed descent from Sajansing the grandson of that Rana Lakhmansing of Chitor, who had fallen in defending his capital from the Afghan emperor Ala ud din Khilji.
The Bhosles took their name from the family fief of Bhosawat in Udaipur. Sajansing Shivaji bhosle to the Deccan and his descendants became soldiers of fortune in the service of the king of Ahmadnagar. Babaji, Shivaji's great-grandfather, Shivaji bhosle patil or headman of the village of Verul near Daulatabad.
His two sons, Maloji and Vithoji, founded the greatness of the family. Led, as they believed, by the goddess Parwati, they discovered in an ant heap a hidden treasure.
Using it wisely they equipped a body of troops and hired their services to Jagpatrao Nimbalkar, the ancestor of the present chief of Phaltan.
Eventually Maloji married Nimbalkar's sister Dipabai. Childless for some years Maloji and his wife went on a pilgrimage to the shrine of a Muslim saint, known as Shah Sharifji.
The result crowned their hopes and in Dipabai gave birth to Shahaji Bhosle, Shivaji's father. When Shahaji was ten years old, Maloji conceived the ambitious design of marrying him to Jijabai, the daughter of the first noble in Ahmadnagar, namely Lakhoji Jadhavrao, who claimed descent from the ancient Yadava kings of Devgiri.
He took Shahaji with him to celebrate the Holi at Lakhaji's house. Jijabai was present and she and Shahaji began to mimic their elders and squirt red-col- oured water over each other's clothes.
Lakhoji, his heart warmed by the gay scene and attracted by the beauty and sturdy build of Shahaji, exclaimed: Lakhoji reluctantly agreed, but his wife strongly opposed the match.
Eventually through the mediation of Murtaza Nizam II the wedding was celebrated. The marriage of Shahaji and Jijabai seems at first to have been happy enough.
In she bore her husband a son called Sambhaji. One night he dreamt that a Hindu anchorite, clad in rags and smeared with yellow ashes, put a mango in his hand and said: The offspring of this reunion was the birth of a little boy.
Convinced that the anchorite whom he had seen in his dream was the god Shiva, Shahaji called his son Shivaji, just as he himself had been called Shahaji after the saint Shah Sharif. Inwhile Shivaji was still a little boy, an enemy of Shahaji named Mhaldar Khan deserted to the Mughals, then attacked Ahmadnagar, and out of spite betrayed to them Shahaji's wife, Jijabai.
They imprisoned her in Kondana fort, now known as Sinhgad, but her servants contrived to conceal Shivaji. At last peace came through the partition of Ahmadnagar between Delhi and Bijapur.
Jijabai was allowed to rejoin her son; but in the meantime Shahaji had entered the service of the Bijapur state and had contracted a second marriage with Tukabai, a girl of the Mohite family. Jijabai would not share her husband with a second wife, so her relations with Shahaji became merely formal.
Jijabai took him with her to Bijapur. There he was married to Saibai, the little daughter of Vithoji Newaskar. Shivaji, however, had been hunted during his infancy by Muslims. He refused to bow to the king of Bijapur according to the prescribed etiquette; and he made so violent a protest against the killing of cows that a riot ensued.
Shahaji hastened to send Jijabai and her son back to his distant fief of Poona and Supa. To help her in its management, he appointed a trusted Brahman officer called Dadaji Kondadev. Unfortunately the fief was utterly desolate. In Shahaji's absence armed bands of Muslim soldiers and of Hindu brigands had overrun the estate.
The peasants had fled, the land had gone out of cultivation and the village itself had been razed to the ground and the site ploughed up by a Mughal captain.
Out of his own savings Dadaji enlisted hillmen to guard the peasants, whom he tempted back. On the right bank of the Mula river, where now stretches the municipal garden, he built home for Jijabai and her son.
The rich black soil of the new lands soon repaid Dadaji what he had spent and gave him besides a handsome balance for development. His financial difficulties surmounted, Dadaji gave his mind to Shivaji's education.
Round the growing lad he gathered other boys of his own age, the sons of the petty landholders of the neighbourhood, and bade them explore the folds of the Sahyadri mountains and the tracks that led through them, so that in the future Shivaji might know how to defend his inheritance.
In fact he cared for the young Maratha noble as if he had been his own son. Thus at eighteen Shivaji was a man, tireless, fearless and deeply inspired with the resolve to free his country from the rule of Bijapur. In the monsoon of Shivaji began his life's work by seizing the Bijapur hill fort of Torna to the southwest of Poona.
It is a beautiful spot in summer and winter, but very dreary during the monsoon.Shivaji Bhosle, Pune, Maharashtra. likes. Chhatrapati Shivajiraje Bhosale (छत्रपति शिवाजीराजे भोसले).
