Feb 12, Shru NJ rated it it was amazing. Since I'm a die hard admirer of Mr. Shivaji Sawant and his creations, this one is also among my top favorites. I was looking for this book since long but could not get it. Recently, my husband gifted me this book and finished reading at the fastest speed I could manage. You just cant keep it down unfinished. The book depicts the life of Sambhaji Raje, the elder of Chatrapati Shivaji.
The book is actually of his hardships during his small lifetime of 30 years. His life is filled with getting separated from those he loved, being stabbed in the back by those he trusted, being in Agra jail at a young age of 9, travelling from Mathura to Raigad along with strangers in a disguise, having a mental breakdown and going to Moghals, the pain of letting his second wife and sister getting caught by Moghals because of him, his own peopl plotting his death, he being blamed for his father's death, last but not the least, his painful torturous death.
It is very well written such that it brings the story alive in your mind. I read the entire book as if its a movie going on in my head but could not imagine the movie towards the end.
Such is the torture given to Sambhaji Raje by Aurangzeb. A must read for history lovers. Sep 23, Punam Gavade rated it really liked it. We know little information and more of rumours about Sambhaji.

Jul 02, Aditi rated it it was amazing. The character of Sambhaji Raje has always been controversial in the history due to the different rumours about him. This book puts an end to these rumours. It is a very well compiled book. The story of a prince who was overshadowed by his father's greatness to certain extent, who fought against all pain to maintain his self-respect and received an extremely painful death in the end after being betrayed by his own people.
