    Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday paid tributes to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj on his 390th birth anniversary, saying his life continues to inspire millions.

    “Bowing to one of the greatest sons of Mother India, the embodiment of courage, compassion and good governance, the exceptional Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj on his Jayanti,” Modi tweeted in Marathi and English.

    Chhatrapati Shivaji was one of the brave rulers of India. Chhatrapati Shivaji was born on 19 February 1630 in the Shivneri fort. The credit for laying the foundation of the Maratha Empire goes to Chhatrapati Shivaji. The birth anniversary of Chhatrapati Shivaji is also known as Shiv Jayanti and Shivaji Jayanti. Shivaji Jayanti is celebrated in the traditional way in Maharashtra.

    This day is a public holiday in Maharashtra. Shivaji is known for his bravery and strategies, from which he won many wars against the Mughals. Chhatrapati Shivaji is known for Swaraj and Maratha heritage.

    Many believe that Shivaji was born after Lord Shiva, but it was not so, he was named after a goddess Shivai. In fact, Shivaji’s mother worshiped Goddess Shivai to have a son and Shivaji was named there.


    Shivaji Maharaj was married on 14 May 1640 to Saibai Nimbalkar. Shivaji taught the war skills of Marathas like guerrilla warfare. He formed a very large army of Marathas.

    Shivaji believed in people of all religions. He also had many Muslim soldiers in his army. Their main goal was to defeat the Mughal army and establish the Maratha Empire.

    Shivaji also respected women. He opposed many violence, exploitation and humiliation against women. Violations of women’s rights resulted in punishment in their state.
