सभासद बखरीचे एक पान

Bakhar is a form of historical narrative written in Marathi prose. Bakhars are one of the earliest genres of medieval Marathi literature.[1] More than 200 bakhars were written in the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries, the most important of them chronicling the deeds of the Maratha ruler Shivaji. Bakhars are considered valuable resources depicting the Maratha view of history, but also criticised for falsification, embellishment and magnification of facts. (Source - Wikipedia)

The "Sabhasad Bakhar" is written by Krishnaji Anant Sabhasad. Chhatrapati Rajaram Maharaj, the younger son of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj commanded Sabhasad to write the life history of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. This Bakhar is a brief narration but it has a significant importance as it was written in Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj's time.
