 Nilacharal - A Tamil entertainment ezine presenting interesting contents and useful services
The real reason for Shivaji living in the popular memory as a legend amongst the masses of Maharashtra is to be found in his administrative policies, his revenue policies and his attitude towards religion of others.
Shivaji showed his values in this episode and thundered that that women is like a mother to him so must be returned to her home with due respect.
While Shivaji's certain values earn him a place in the august parliament, it is also imperative that the Hindutva presentation of Shivaji is undone and his values as a king who reduced the taxation on the poor brought forward.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (formerly Victoria Terminus), better known by its acronym VT (Veetee), is a historic railway station of the Mumbai suburban railway, as well as for some long-distance trains.

In 1996, in response to demands by the Shiv Sena and in keeping with the policy of renaming locations with Indian names, the station was renamed by the state government after Chhatrapati Shivaji, a famed 17th century Maratha king.

Shivaji strove consciously for political power as an instrument for the resurrection of dharma (righteousness), a quest he termed as "Hindavi Swarajya," a word having both geographical and spiritual-cultural connotations.
Shivaji was aware of the economic ruin and cultural annihilation of Hindus under the various sultanates.
Then, there is Laine's tasteless allegation that Shivaji may possibly (whatever that means) be illegitimate, simply because Jijabai, who bore many children while living with her husband in the south, gave birth to Shivaji on her husband's estate near Pune and continued to live there.

 Asia Times Online - The best news coverage from South Asia
In relation to the martial dimension of the Shivaji legend, Laine provides a pertinent historical and cultural scrutiny of Shivaji's killing of Afzal Khan (1659), the raid on Shaista Khan (1663), the escape from Agra (1666), and the conquest of Simhagad (1670).
Shivaji himself began as a nominal servant of the Adil Shah, and later agreed to an alliance with Jai Singh and to fight as a Mughal general.
The problem is compounded in the case of Shivaji because of the issue of caste - Shivaji had to make serious efforts to lay claim to a so-called higher Rajput caste (while having been born a "lower caste").

 Manas: History and Politics, Aurangzeb
Shivaji, though his father was exiled from Pune, was raised in the city that was to become the capital not only of Maratha power, but the seat, as it were, of real and imagined Hindu martial traditions.
Shivaji’ hagiographers at this point pause to reflect on their hero’s daring escape from the court of Aurangzeb in 1666.
Though Shivaji had, by 1670, recaptured many of the fortresses he had previously surrendered to Aurangzeb, the hagiographers do not always mention the fact that he continued to petition the Mughal emperor to be entitled a “Raja”.

 Tehelka - The People's Paper
First of all, it was not a biography of Shivaji and I was not writing history in the normal sense.
In the British period it was important for Maharashtrian writers to dispute the British portrayal of Shivaji as a freebooter and to argue that his killing of Afzal Khan was a legitimate act of self-defence.
What I did claim was that it was interesting that everyone accepts the idea that the fact that Shahji lived in Bangalore for Shivaji’s entire life and bequeathed his land there to his son by a second wife, never causes anyone to ask whether or not he and Jijabai were estranged.

 [No title]
Shivaji was born at Shivneri fort in 1627 (according to some historians 1630 AD or 1686 Samvat).
After few brave attemps to save his territory, Shivaji concluded a peace treaty at Purandhar fort and on insistance of Jay Singh, agreed to pay visit to Aurangzeb at Imperial court of Agra (it is difficult to understand what led Shivaji to agree to this proposal and many theories have been proposed by historians).
Shivaji the great brought the Maratha empire into existance which was taken to its zenith by Peshwa Baji Rao I and remained undisputed military power till begining of 19th century.

 Rajinikanth.com - Movie Reviews - Shivaji "The Boss"
Director Shanker had already touched on this subject in 'Gentleman' which was a run-away success, and this time in "Shivaji", the subject will be gone into deeply with high=profile Rajini playing the central role with his wellknown aplomb and characteristic style.
What inspired Shankar is said to be a recent real-life incident in which a former MP was done to death in a southern district of Tamil Nadu at the instance of an engineering college owner out of rivalry.
In "Shivaji", Rajini returns from abroad with the objective of establishing a college where he intends providing higher education charging the same fees as in government-run colleges do without capitation fees.
