Epic Poem of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj

Epic Poem of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj

(This poem is about great Maratha king Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. I as the creator of this poem believe it to be the longest poem on Shivaji Maharaj in any language.

This is an epic poem consisting of 76 quatrains made up of 304 lines. © Vinay Phatak. All rights reserved. )

The sky was smiling on the fort of Shivneri,
A child was coming to bring joy and glory
The heir of Shahaji Bhosale’s clan would create history
This epic is Chhatrapati Shivaji’s amazing story.

Trumpets and drums told the skies and the earth
Jijabai has given birth, Jijabai has given birth!
The fort was smiling with delight and mirth
Hail the noble birth, hail the noble birth!

Shahaji and Jijabai’s son safe in his bastion
He will create a nation, he will create a nation.
Shivaji will live a life as a divine mission
His people’s liberation, his people’s liberation.

Jijabai, Shivaji’s mother was his real guru
Taught him to be true, taught him to be true.
Growing fast his knowledge will accrue
Soon had a motley crew, soon had a motley crew.

This is really a long poem so please read the full poem
