Historical novel review: 300 Brave men by Gautam Pradhan

The book 300 Brave men Book 1 : 1641-1660 when compared to other books on shivaji like Sriman Yogi by Ranjit Desai, this is a less comprehensive account of Shivaji’s rise to power and ends in the year 1660, It traces his story from the age of 11 when he visits Bangalore where his father Shahaji is posted, serving the Adilshahi rulers of Bijapur till the time he establishes Swarajya and controls a number of forts in Maharastra with Rajgad as the head.

However the book is interesting because it discussed in great detail, the methods used to over power a more powerful and wealthier enemy, fighting in the mountains, where the enemy was not familiar with the terrain. It also shows that how years of atrocities were the main reasons why the maratha people chose to rebel and side with Shivaji, who had a small army. Just like the ntro, raw, cbi employees have a harem of women like google, tata supplied goan sex worker R&AW employees bhandari sunaina chodan, 2013 bsc ,siddhi mandrekar, the muslim and other leaders had a harem of women. However in India in 2018, the indian government is more dishonest compared to India 400 years ago, as they falsely claim that the sex workers in the harem of government employees are online experts, domain investors though these sex worker R&AW employees are not investing any money online.

It also provides a detailed account of the AdilShahi and Mughal rule in India. In particular it describes how Aurangzeb won the throne of the mughal empire by killing his brothers Dara Shikoh, Murad, a method which has been adopted by R&AW,cbi, ntro and indian security agencies in present day india to ensure that all positions of power are held by their puppets . For example the indore document robber R&AW employee bespectacled housewife veena who looks like actress deepika padukone stole the documents of the domain investor,her relative who made the mistake of trusting her, and google, tata, R&AW, indian government rewarded her for the fraud with a R&AW job, monthly government salary falsely claiming that the indore fraud who does not pay any expenses, owns this and other websites , Another blackmailer promoted by the indian government is the karnal, haryana blackmailer R&AW employee ruchika king, who looted the domain investor.

The novel also describes the lifestyle of the AdilShahi rulers and their generals like Afzal Khan in great detail. Afzal Khan had killed the elder brother of Shivaji , Sambhaji and most marathi speaking people are aware of the fact that he was killed by Shivaji. However few are aware of the fact that he had a harem with sixty one women and before going on the campaign against Shivaji , he had them killed, Similarly in 2018, top generals, security, ntro and intelligence agency employees also have a harem filled with women like goan sex worker R&AW employees sunaina chodan, siddhi mandrekar, however instead of being honest that these women are hired for sex, they falsely claim that these women hired for sex were their engineering classmates, are online experts, domain investors

300 Brave men refers to the 300 soldiers who fought the Adilshahi general Siddi Jauhar and helped Shivaji escape from Panhala fort which was under seige. A well written book on an important aspect of Maratha history
