Our children have seen superheroes on TV, and they want to become like them and unknowingly cultivate some of their traits, like courage and determination.

Teaching our kids morals and life skills has never been more vital. As parents, we strive to foster courage and leadership in our children. We want them to be confident, ethical, and ready to face life’s problems. But don’t you think our kids should know about Indian culture too?

We should educate our children about our culture and the superheroes of our country and teach them some of their characteristics, which will help them excel in the future.

Today, on the occasion of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Jayanti 2024, let me take you all through the chronicle of the great achievements of Chhatrapati Shivaji, the Maratha warrior-king.

Let’s begin Shivaji Maharaj’s expedition with our young explorers, sail together into time, and revisit the exciting stories of the great Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj: The Legendary Hero!

Teaching our kids morals

Shivaji Maharaj, the brave warrior and the founder of the Maratha Empire, has been worshipped in Indian history ever since. Every February 19, Shivaji Maharaj is honoured by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Jayanti for his life and acts. Shivaji Maharaj, an Indian legend, is warmly embraced and celebrated by the citizens on this day.

Shivaji Maharaj was born in Pune’s Shivneri Fort on February 19, 1630. His parents were Jijabai and Shahaji Bhosale, an Adil Shahi general. Shivaji Maharaj was raised with patriotism and a passion for his country. Hinduism and Maratha’s bravery also shaped him. These influences shaped his personality and his future goals.

Shivaji Maharaj learned fighting and statecraft early on. His schooling included military tactics, history, and administration. He also lived with courage, determination, and selflessness. Shivaji Maharaj’s first major military triumph was taking Torna Fort from the Adil Shahis, aged 16. His distinguished military and leadership career began with this win.

Shivaji Maharaj built a great Maratha Empire spanning most of India. Guerrilla and naval warfare are his military innovations. For years, Shivaji Maharaj has inspired Indians with his leadership, courage, and patriotism.
