JIJABAI

Like Seetha and Shakunthala

One after another troubles over-whelmed Mother Jija. In 1630 Shahaji Raje married Tukabai, as his second wife in Bangalore. After this marriage he visited Jijabai and his son Shivaji only now and then. He spent his time mostly with Tukabai and her son. But Jijabai did not lose heart. She spent all her time in the education of Shivaji. No doubt Shahaji was a valiant man. But the love of liberty had dried up in him. He had completely given himself to the service of others. Jijabai knew that her ideals could not be achieved if the boy Shivaji lived with Shahaji.

The far-sighted Jijabai brought up her son in such a way that his father's aloofness did not cause young Shivaji unhappiness or pain. Love of his country, his religion, freedom and a good life - this was the firm foundation on which she raised the structure of Shivaji's great life. As Shakunthala taught her son Bharatha and as Seetha shaped the lives of her sons, Lava and Kusha, Jijabai completed the difficult task of modeling the future independent sovereign of the Maratha State in the shade of her motherly care and love.
