Shrimanyogi is a book on Chatrapathi Shivaji by the popular Marathi writer Ranjeet Desai. Summary Of The Book Shrimanyogi is a biographical work on the life and the achievements of the great Maratha king, Chatrapathi Shivaji. Shivaji has been a legendary figure in the Indian history. Shivaji was one of the major influences on the revival of nationalism and Hindu culture during a period when centuries of rule by Muslim invaders had induced a condition of apathy and indifference in the people. Shivaji successfully created a Hindu kingdom during Aurangzeb's rule, and his achievements were many. Over the years, many legends have been added to Shivaji’s life, and it is hard to filter out these embellishments and just focus on the facts. The author has done his best to build this book just on facts. And the facts alone are interesting enough to highlight the achievements of this legendary king. Though Shivaji’s rise was during the time of Aurangzeb, his main confrontation was with the Sultanate of Adil Shah rather than with the Mughals. Shivaji was a man who built a dynasty starting from nothing. His motivations were always immense pride in his culture and love for his motherland. However, he was not a bigot and treated all his subjects equally well, irrespective of their religion and other divisions. His battles were mostly with Muslim rulers, but he never showed any animosity towards the Muslim inhabitants of his kingdom. Shivaji’s period was the height of  glory in Maratha history. His achievements served as an inspiration to later generations of nationalists like Bal Gangadhar Tilak. His stories inspired people who were fighting for the country’s independence from the British rule. The author has presented Shivaji as he really was, with no embellishments. Shivaji was a dynamic leader, a warrior, and a nobleman. He was religious without being fanatic, he was a believer, but not superstitious, he was courageous but not foolish. He was a visionary who dreamt of building a Hindu kingdom in a region that was surrounded by Muslim dynasties. Yet, he was extremely practical. Shivaji was a courageous warrior and a great tactician. At the same time, he was also a very good administrator and the kingdom he was building up became stronger under his rule. He suffered many defeats too, but he never gave up his vision, and ultimately, he did succeed in making his dream a reality. Shivaji’s real achievement, the most enduring one, was that he revived a love of the land and its ancient culture in the minds of people who had stopped caring for a long time. He instilled a sense of pride and confidence in their minds, displacing the indifference and bleakness that had been their attitude for long. His legacy induced a sense of pride and nationalism in the people that has endured for centuries, inspiring different generations in fighting the different challenges that faced the nation. The author, in this book, has captured all the different facets of Shivaji’s personality that contributed towards this legacy, and thus gives the reader a sense of involvement in the events taking place in the story.

This is a biographical novel on Shivaji Maharaj. This historical novel has created history in the world of literature and books. Shivaji Maharaj is the most worshipped person in Maharashtra. Every single household here knows Shivaji. He is the most respected and worshipped character. He was a dream come true. Shivaji was born as a Hindu but at such time when Hinduism was forgotten by the Hindus. In his novel Ranjit Desai pictures Shivaji from his birth rather he starts with the days prior to his birth. Before writing this novel Desai has searched history, he has not left any stone unturned while doing so. Writing on Shivaji was a very difficult task. Shivaji had many qualities and the last 34 centuries have changed people's view about him. They have become more possessive about him adding unnecessarily, and untruthfully to his qualities considering him a god. On this background it was very difficult to portray Shivaji as perfect as possible Desai had realised his responsiblity. He has pictured Shivaji metaculously in this novel. Religious but not superstitious, strict but not wicked, adventurous but not impetuous, practical but not aimless, realistic, visionary but not dreamy. Graceful but not prodigal. Desai has succeeded in highlighting Shivaji's human nature. His base was that of a human. He valued all, respected every religion. He was an expert commander. He awakened the love for motherland in the sleeping mind, of people. He ignited their confidence. While describing this, Desai has brought many of Shivaji's qualities into limelight. Shivaji was a noble king but he was a nobleman. He also had his own suffereings. He lost many, but his first preference was his motherland. As we go on reading we get involved in the book so much that we live each moment and when Desai ends the novel we feel that 'WE' have lost Shivaji.
