Why Mughals could never detained Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj ?
We all know Who is Shivaji Maharaj , What he had achieved. But Today Let’s know how Maharaj had achieve all these.
First of all, I request all of you to google old or real Portraits of Maharaj. Take a look of them carefully, and if you can’t find one, I have attached one here.
What Similarity you have found in those photos?
Many of you must have got it. Yes , All Portraits of Maharaj covers only HALF SIDED FACE of Maharaj.
Mughals had never seen Shivaji unless they met him in War. And the reason behind that is only half sided portrait was available to Mughals , which was not enough to catch and detain Maharaj, that’s why despite of caught by Mughals many times they could never detained him , even once Aurangzeb has tried to make him hostage in Agra, but it was Aurangzeb’s failed attempt as Maharaj was able to escape from there, and it was interesting story so I request to all readers just find on Youtube How Shivaji Maharaj escaped from agra ?
