    In order to divide the Maratha onslaught, the Mughals released Shahuji, Sambhaji's son and Tarabai's nephew, on certain conditions. He immediately challenged Tarabai and Shivaji II for leadership of the Maratha polity. Shahu eventually prevailed thanks to his legal position and in part to the Peshwa Balaji Vishwanath's bajirao diplomacy and Tarabai was sidelined. She established a rival court in Kolhapur in 1709 but was deposed by Rajaram's other widow, Rajasabai, who put her own son, Sambhaji II, on the throne. Tarabai and her son were imprisoned by Sambhaji II. Shivaji II died in 1726. Tarabai afterwards reconciled with Chhattrapati Shahu in 1730 and went to live in Satara but without any political power.

    Conflict with Peshwa Balaji Bajirao
    In 1740s, during the last years of Shahu's life, Tarabai brought a child to him: Rajaram II(also known as Ramaraja). She presented the child as her grandson, and thus, a direct descendant of Shivaji. She claimed that he had been concealed after his birth for his protection and had been raised by the wife of a Rajput soldier.[5] The child was adopted by Shahu who did not have a son of his own.

    After Shahu's death in 1749, Rajaram II succeeded him as the Chhatrapati. When Peshwa Balaji Baji Rao left for the Mughal frontier, Tarabai urged Rajaram II to remove him from the post of Peshwa. When Rajaram refused, she imprisoned him in a dungeon at Satara, on 24 November 1750. She claimed that he was an impostor from Gondhali caste and she had falsely presented him as her grandson to Shahu. Tarabai urged other ministers, such as the Pratinidhi and the Pant Sachiv, to rebel against the Peshwa, but they refused to help her. She also sought help from Ramdas, a Brahmin in the service of Nizam Salabat Jung, offering him to make the Peshwa. However, Nizam's treaty with the Peshwa prevented him from dispatching a force to Satara.[6]

    Earlier, in October 1750, Tarabai had met Umabai Dabhade, who also held a grudge against the Peshwa. Umabai dispatched a 15,000 troops led by Damaji Rao Gaekwad in support of Tarabai. Gaekwad defeated a 20,000-strong force led by the Peshwa loyalist Trimbakrao Purandare at Nimb, a small town north of Satara. He then marched to Satara, where he was received by Tarabai. However, Trimbakrao re-formed his army and on 15 March, attacked Gaekwad's army, which was encamped on the banks of Venna River. Gaekwad was defeated in this battle and forced to retreat with heavy losses.[6]

    Meanwhile, Peshwa returned from the Mughal frontier, reaching Satara on 24 April. He stormed the Yavateshwar garrison in Satara, defeating Tarabai's forces. He surrounded the Satara fort, and asked Tarabai to release Chhatrapati Rajaram II, whose physical and mental condition had deteriorated considerably. Tarabai refused and the Peshwa left for Pune, since a siege of the well-provisioned and strong Satara fort would not be easy. Meanwhile, Damaji Gaekwad, Umabai Dabhade and their relatives were arrested by the Peshwa's men.[6]

    A section of Tarabai's troops in the Satara garrison unsuccessfully rebelled against her. She beheaded Anandrao Jadhav, the leader of the rebels. However, she realized that the she would not be able to fight Peshwa, and agreed to meet him in Pune for a peace agreement. Janoji Bhonsle, also a rival of the Peshwa, was in neighbourhood of Pune with a strong army and agreed to protect her against any harm. In Pune, Peshwa treated her respectfully and after some reluctance, Tarabai accepted Peshwa's superiority. She agreed to dismiss her lieutenant Baburao Jadhav, whom the Peshwa disliked. In return, the Peshwa forgave her. On 14 September 1752, the two took oaths at Khandoba temple in Jejuri, promising mutual peace. At this oath ceremony, Tarabai also swore that Rajaram II was not her grandson, but an impostor from the Gondhali caste.[6] Nevertheless, Peshwa retained Rajaram II as the titular Chhhatrapati and a powerless figurehead.[5]

    My gotra is also Bharadwaj. Rishi Bharadwaj was considered to be an expert in in aviation. I think you have preserved the legacy which the person like myself could not do.

    I just feel bad when there is atyachar on innocents. I don't care who they are.
    Here is a video of Bengal where people are abusing a Brahman in front of his daughter. And no one comes to save him.


    Shivaji Horse's name was Krishna or something, but you get the idea, don't flaunt it.

    Kejariwal is a pawn to Congress and BJP. Mamata, the less spoken the better. Its not about the governments or the CMs. Those small time chaps like municipality mukadams and tahsildars all the way to officers are the biggest plague India has. Try getting administrative work done from them. When we talk about illegal bangladeshis , they have settled in all parts of india and have been incorporated into our system with all facilities as a normal citizen, irrespective of which government has been in power. Go to your ward office and see how easy it is to pay your way through to acquire fake documents. They dont care about which religion or community you come from, as long as their pockets are full.

    Wet dreams of bhakts without any understanding of ground realities. There is no 'strong' base or 'hindu cause' for RSS in kerala. A common keralite or tamil see Modi as a strong leader with despicable ideology. He don't call shots in local politics. Local BJP lacks strong leaders. BJP/RSS workers has been getting killed for two decades nothing new here (national media never cared until now). CPI and Congress will continue to share power periodically. Northern sanghis will continue to look at this socially developed state with contempt and envy.

    There is a political vaccum in TN and who do you think will fill that vaccum? KarunaNidhi is on deathbed, nor are his sons any good. Modi will call
    all shots in politics as BJP footprint increases in South. As time passes more leaders from other parties will jump into BJP,Already happening in AP and Telangana. If BJP got strong local leaders its fine,if not you can always recruit strongmen from other parties and Strongmen won't remain in same party which keeps losing elections after elections,they like to stay in power and will side with any party in power Its how Politics are. Once a Beach head established with local leaders of other parties, a new cadre will be created its dividends will be reaped in next two terms and then these local leaders from other parties dont matter once a beach head is established.
    For Two decades there was never a strong BJP rule,Vajpayee was a Secular coalition player was content with drinking whiskey in Delhi and confining the party to Cow belt , he didn't push for expansion into south or North-East as aggressively as Modi-Amit Shah are doing now.
    Just another term and you will see CPI crumbling and Congress jumping into BJP. WB Mukul Roy is in BJP now.

    CPI will get kicked out of Tripura. Congress when its HQ is crumbling cannot hold onto its satraps. BJP was not a contender in Assam nor J&K now it rules those states.

    Socially developed state?:rofl:
    Is that the reason you don't have jobs in your state,nor Industry and all you can do is work in gulf or in other not so Socially Developed states.What good is a state then? Keep that Socially developed state shit to yourself,mate People find it funny.:rolleyes:
    In Hindi.there is a proverb "ghar mein nahin dane ,amma chali bhunane "
    Continue living in your dreamland.

    Why are you blabbering about north east and cow belt when i'm talking about kerala ? What have you done there ? At least a hundred RSS/BJP workers died at the hands of communists. What did this Amit-Modi do?

    Typical Shakha educated rant with no objective analysis. Panjabi population in Canada and US is twice of that of entire Kerala population in gulf. And sanghis have problem with kerala immigrants. Kerala and AP get more remittances because they are better educated.

    Industries don't define social standards. If you think North is better developed socially (Health,education and living standard) then kerala no point discussing further.
