Shivaji: Hindu King in Islamic India
James W. Laine (Author)
In the second half of the 17th century, Shivaji rose from a minor chieftain to an independent king, founding the Maratha kingdom. In this study Laine looks not at Shivaji directly, but at the stories that have been told about him and their development over the last three and a half centuries. These have become entwined with the construction of Maharahstrian, Hindu, and Indian identities, and Laine begins with these, and with the risks of attributing anachronistic self-identifications to Shivaji.
Shivaji and His Times
Sir Jadunath Sarkar (Author)
"the present work is a valuable History of the Mahrattas, (3 Vols., 1826), in the rigid preference of contemporary records to later compilations, and the exhaustive and minute use of the available sources, both printed and MS. — in Persian, English, Marathi and Hindi, as well as the Dutch Records in the India Office, London." -- Sir Jadunath Sarkar
Ballads of Marathas
Harry Arbuthnot Acworth (Author)
"There are two orders of poems, however, which require special reference. The first is the Lavnis or love-songs. The objection to them generally is that they are both licentious and coarse. The greatest of Lavni writers. Ram Joshi, is however free from this im- putation. The second of the two special orders of poems, the Pawadas or historic ballads, requires more detailed consideration. The true Pawada is not a written poem at all. It is the song or ballad of the wandering bard of the Maharashtra called the Gondhali, which has been handed down by memory from one generation to another. The name of the original author is generally given at the end of each ballad, but it is often impossible to identify him.
