All Indian and Maharashtriyan peoples are fond of Marathas History. They all are fascinated about it. Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is the great Idol Hero of all peoples. Life of Shivaji Maharaj was full of adventures and battles. As we all know Mughal dynasty was all over India when Shivaji borne. His mother Jijabai took him to Pune jahagir and initiated to bring Swaraj in reality. Since childhood while wandering near around Pune Shivaji search and gathered friends from villages and with help of them he captured Adilshahi Forts. I have tried to mention here one of the thriller phenomenon of Shivaji's life, that is, Battle of Panhala and Pawan Khind. This story is very thrilling and tremendous surprising. Shivaji was trapped on Panhala Fort, covered around by Siddhi Johar and his 70,000 Adilshahi troop. He could not go out. At the same time Shahenshah of Hindustan, Aurangzeb send his Uncle Shahistekhan with One Lakh Mughal troop to ruin Swaraj of Shivaji. He had stayed in Pune only. In this situation to escape from Panhala was very essential for Shivaji. In this work many people had helped Shivaji. Shiva Kashid, Baji Prabhu Deshpande, Phulaji, Shambhusingh Bhosale, Rayaji Bandal and his 600 bandal Sena were successfully took out Shivaji from Panhala. For this Shiva Kashid by wearing dress like Shivaji Raje and after escaped from the trap he was caught by Siddhi's Sipahi. He played the role of Shivaji Raje for a long time, in front of Siddhi , which helped Shivaji to go far away from Siddhi's Sena. But when Siddhi came to know the truth, he Killed Shiva Kashid and sent Siddi Masud with 10,000 soldiers to bring Shivaji back. At Ghodkhind Baji prevented Masud and his 10,000 soldiers with the help of only 300 Bandal soldiers and sent Shivaji towards Vishalgad with remaining 300 bandal soldiers. Anybody really very much surprise to see the braveness and sacrifices of these people. Baji Prabhu and all these 300 soldiers were killed in this battle. Only for saving the life of Shivaji all these people sacrificed their lives.

About the Author

I, Sandeep Raghunath Pataskar, retired from Central Government Service from Indian Navy (Defence) (Civilian). I am living in Pune. I like to read and work on history and mythology. This book I have written during September, 2014, while I was in service. Due to protocol, I could not publish my books while in service. We all know about the battle of Ghodkhind. We all learnt about it in our childhood. I have also read many books, watches many TV serials and Movies based on this historic phenomenon. This story is very much impress and grooved to the mind. Nobody can forget this story throughout his life. I tried here to bring this story again in front you. I think the Story of Shiva Kashid has been given less importance in front of Story of Baji Prabhu and therefore, I tried to highlight the contribution of Shiva Kashid of this phenomenon. Please let me know your view about the book. Thank you.
