Shivaji the Great Maratha (Amar Chitra Katha 3 in 1 series)
During the seventeenth century, the Mughals reigned supreme over Northern and Central India. In the Deccan endless battles were fought between other kings like Adil Shah of Bijapur and chiefs like the Nawab of Janjira.
The common man suffered at the hands of the officers as well as the marauding chieftains. At such a period was Shivaji born. He was the son of a brave father and a wise and loving mother. These two and a teacher named Dadoji were the formative influences on Shivaji's character. The flame of freedom burnt in the little boy's heart. He collected around him a band of devoted followers and as they grew up they swore to throw off the yoke of alien rule. How Shivaji carried out his ambitious plans with success, is told in pictures in the pages of the first book in this special volume.
