Jijabai was mother of Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj. There are very few books or material written on jijabai. Author has described the character sketch of jijabai with her contribution in freedom in this book.
Jijabai can be named first in the overall contribution made by women in the history. In order to achieve freedom in the struggle of swarajya brought in practice through Shivaji. Expansion of Swarajya, was as good as giving a new life to the masses. The period, in which Jijabai created awareness of Swarajya, was truly backward period where women were not given rights. This induces us to pay more respect to such a brave woman with amicable statesmanship, extraordinary administration, adaptable on hard circumstances and strict on executing the duties are depicted from the incidents narrated in the book.
Author has given all the possible true facts related to the incident in the book, without any myths or false facts. The book also depicts few contradictory statements made on a particular society, which are not supported with any historic evidences. These are like doubt of non-existence of Samarth Ramdas, without any evidence to history.
The book is useful for all the detailed historic facts about Jijabai, which are hardly found anywhere.
