“Sambhaji” was eldest son of the Maratha empire founder “Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj”. He was one of the most controversial as well as bravest personalities in the history. Some historians in the last centuries and some contemporary writers have doubted Sambhaji Maharaj’s ability as a ruler. So they have portrayed him as ineffective and alcoholic person and malign his character. This was done so that people should not follow his legacy. Well they were successful for some years but eventually the truth and real “Sambhaji” understood by people. And this book by Vishwas Patil will help us understand him better. Today Sambhaji Maharaj is not only known as able ruler, passionate caretaker, military genius and he will forever be remembered for the way he accept the death. He wrote several poems including a Sanskrit poetry book “Budh Bhushan” that describes the art and science of politics along with detailed description of Raigad fort.

This is absolutely must read book for everyone. If I have to rate this book I will give it 10 out of 10.
