About the Book

Imprisoning the benison that took birth in the form of Jijabai in words is but an infinitesimal endeavour to laud their Goliathic greatness and achievements.

'Veermata Jijabai' embodied a spirit of serene and unassuming fortitude and endearing severity. A woman of noble vision, she realized her most cherished ambition, the establishment of Hindavi Swaraj through her celebrated son Shivaji.

Jibabai was the Queen Mother and Shivaji's mother; but more importantly, she was also the mother of this fight for Swaraj for which independence strikes as the closest, though also the most euphemistic English counterpart, carrying merely the essence and eroded emotions associated with the institution of Swaraj.

Jijabai's life is inspirational and very relevant even today and inspires women to struggle to succeed in all spheres of life.

Preface

Imprisoning the benison that took birth in the form of Jijabai and her son Shivaji in words is but an infinitesimal endeavour to laud their Goliathic greatness and achievements.

Although extensive literature is available, mainly on Shivaji and to a lesser degree on Jijabai, in Marathi and Bengali; English, Hindi and other vernacular languages have resolutely ignored the subject.

'Veermata Jijabai' embodied a spirit of serene and unassuming fortitude and endearing severity. A woman of noble vision, she realized her most cherished ambition, the establishment of 'Hindavi Swaraj' through her celebrated son Shivaji.

The atrocities committed by the Mughals, Adilshah and Nizamshah on the Hindus had over brimmed the saturation point. This enthused young Shiva to vow to protect the Hindus. His sterling qualities of valour, fearlessness, wit and efficiency were inculcated in him by his mother.

Jijabai was the Queen Mother and Shvaji's mother; but more importantly, she was also the mother of this fight for 'Swaraj' for which independence strikes me as the closest, through also the most euphemistic English counterpart, carrying merely the essence and eroded emotions associated with the institution of 'Swaraj'.

Shivaji's experience with his father was brief and limited. However, his mother was constantly by his side, the guiding angel in his life. Shivaji's devotion to his mother, and Jijabai's unwavering faith and eternal love for Shivaji are metaphorical.

I consider this an opportunity to sketch Jijabai's character as an immoderate honour and an enormous privilege.

I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!
Noemi
I would like to thank Exotic India for the very superior packaging and shipment of my order. Much appreciated! The order arrived very quickly. Many thanks!! I will always check Exotic India first for books in the future.

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
