After his coronation in 1674, Shivaji Maharaj planned this expedition with great care and sagacity. He needed a substantial kingdom to match this title of Chhatrapati. He needed space for strategic defence in depth. He needed a place where he could, if the need arose, send his second son Rajaram away from the tempestuous Sambhaji.
He had 2 bitter foes, the Mughals and the Adilshah. To keep them at bay and secure the friendship of Qutub Shah the enemy’s enemy should be the friend.
