Maratha Samrajya Rise of a New Empire

Author Name: Tanish Venkatesh | Format: Paperback | Genre : History & Politics | Other Details

In the 16th century, invaders looked upon Hindustan with the dream of annexing it. They relentlessly attacked Hindustan’s small villages, torturing, looting, burning houses, and destroying temples. But in the 17th century, a young boy named Shivaji, stood up to fight those invaders and lit the lamp for Swarajya (Independence). He along with his comrades, rebelled and managed to recapture Maharashtra and some parts of Karnataka. His legacy was later continued by the Peshwas (Prime ministers) of the Maratha empire. By 1759, the Maratha empire reached its zenith, having recaptured Hindustan from Tamil Nadu to Peshawar (present-day Pakistan) and from Gujarat to Bengal! Maratha Samrajya is a short but detailed history of famous Maratha events, from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj to Madhavrao Ballal Peshwa. This book is an attempt to showcase their remarkable battles and immense sacrifice without which Hindustan would not have attained freedom from the invading armies.
