Pictorial book on Shivaji launched in UK

Facsimile of a special 25A pictorial book on Maratha warrior Shivaji, containing 100 paintings by an Indian tribal artist, has been released in the House of Commons here.

Historian Babasaheb Purandare presented a copy of the book – Shivaji, the Real Hero , a brief insight into the life of Shivaji Maharaj – to leading NRI Labour MP Keith Vaz at an event in the Churchill Room of House of Commons last night.

Speaking on the occasion, Vaz, Chairman of the Britain’s Home Affairs Committee, said he would order a copy of the book and keep it in the Library of the British Parliament so that MPs and Peers could have a glimpse of the rule of the Shivaji.

In his speech, Purandare suggested that the 88–page book should be published in all Indian languages.

He observed that there is a lack of enthusiasm among readers to buy books on erstwhile Indian rulers.

Shivaji, the Real Hero is the first book from the trilogy on the great Maratha ruler and it contains 100 paintings by artist Brijesh Mogre from Palghar in Maharashtra.

In his Foreword, Purandare wrote, “Brijesh Mogre’s unique conception of historical caricatures of Shivaji Maharaj is indeed an unparalleled form of Modern Art! He has handled the presentation of this unique art with meticulous proficiency and finesse.”PTI
