The book “Who was Shivaji” was an imaginary fiction book and is brainchild of Govind Pansare. He has not used any historical references or proofs in the process. This was just to stir the caste politics by pushing false information in to the media.

If anyone really wants to know who was Shivaji maharaj, better go for “Shivacharitra” by Babasaheb Purandare. He has used historical references for every point that he mentioned.
