How to pay homage to Chhatrapati Shivaji?

Unlike the moronic ways I’ve written about many times earlier, this group of people show us the real way.

“For two months they stayed away from home, quit jobs and risked their lives and limbs climbing to dizzying heights and faced nature’s challenges. For, propelling these 20 youth, was their devotion to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Their mission: To photograph and document over 200 of his forts in the State.” For what, you ask?

  2. Greetings,

    I am great admirer of Shri Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Since childhood I have been reading a lot about my favourite king. I don’t have the resources nor the finances to visit my childhood dream fort- Raigad.
    Is the site going to put all the photos on the net for die-hard fans like me?
    It would be great if you could do it.
    Keep up the good work. Kudos to the team.
