Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore Poem On Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj

In what far-off country, upon what obscure day
I know not now,
Seated in the gloom of some Mahratta mountain-wood
O King Shivaji,
Lighting thy brow, like a lightning flash,
This thought descended,
"Into one virtuous rule, this divided broken distracted India,
I shall bind."

~ Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore
