Evidence of his bravery, personality, work done for the benefit of the ryots, foresight is given even today.
The uniqueness of Maharaj is that he was a man of the age, his vision, ideal governance, strategy is an example before us today. If you read his orders, you will not be able to get an idea of how vigilant Shivrai was. His management skills, punctuality are features that are worth studying in today's management science as well. Shivrai was everyone's. In the army he formed for the defense of Swarajya, there were people of 18 Pagad castes, people who loved Shivaraya across the walls of caste-religion-language.

Our government is working and will continue to do so keeping in view the teachings of Shivchhatrapati. Millions of crores of prostrations at the feet of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
