Tanhaji Malusare was an unsung Maratha warrior from the 17th century Maratha Empire, whose acts of valor and bravery continued to inspire soldiers long after his death in battle. He was endowed with a body of steel, courage of a lion with an agile mind and Chattrapati Shivaji's closest aide and trusted lieutenant. Ready to lay down his life for his King and country, this Braveheart went to war, armed with a few Maratha soldiers to get back the Kondana Fort, against the Mughal army headed by Udaybhan. Mughal's had the muscle power, but Tanhaji had sharp acumen. Unfortunately, Marathas won Kondhana Fort, but lost their Lion. Tanhaji left behind a void that none in history could ever fill.
