Highlighting the unmatched management skills Chhattrapati Shivaji, Professor Sumant Tekade said that entrepreneurs and professionals should take lessons from the great Maratha King. He said that the skills and ideals of Shivaji are very much relevant even in today’s world.

“Right from the very early age, Shivaji showcased extraordinary leadership, meticulas planning and flawless management ability that made him a great king. One should study these qualities and adopt them for the welfare of the society,” he suggested.

Tekade said that the entrepreneurs should learn from Shivaji how he used to gather intelligence and make plans. Attack on Surat, Post Afzalkhan conquest, escape from Agra are the biggest examples of his flawless planning that could be possible because of the valuable inputs he had gathered from his men.

Tekade said that the Shivaji had the ability to reward and punish as well. “On several occasions, he had rewarded his men and also punished those who committed mistakes. Because of this, in his regime women were very safe,” he said.

Apart from this, the visionary leader had showcased great administrative qualities while his taxation policies were outstanding, Tekade said adding that Shivaji would not collect tax from farmers who were in distress.
“In fact he used to offer food grains to needy persons as Shivaji’s only objective was to serve common men,” he said.
