Delivered By

?
  • Usually Delivered in 9-10 business days.

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

'In Stock'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Available'

'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for Sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

Swami (Paperback) Price: Rs. 225

Swami is a Marathi historical novel that is based on the life of Peshwa Madhavrao 1.


Summary Of The Book

Swami is a book that chronicles the life of Madhavrao 1, a man who was handed the task of ruling an empire when he was just 16 years of age. Peshwa Madhavrao was the son of Nanasaheb Peshwa. During his time, the Maratha Empire covered a vast portion of central, western, and northern India. However, by the time of Nanasaheb’s death, the empire was thrown in chaos. The defeat suffered by the Marathas in the Third Battle of Panipat had resulted in heavy losses. Madhavrao’s elder brother Vishwasrao was dead, and soon, Nanasaheb also breathed his last.


Madhavrao was crowned as Peshwa when he was just 16 years old. Initially, he had to face opposition from his own family. His uncle Raghunathrao defeated him and took control of the empire. But his move to befriend the Nizam backfired, as the Nizam used this to his own advantage. This eventually led to Madhavrao regaining power. Eventually, the Maratha army under Madhavrao defeated the Nizam’s army.


Madhavrao also waged war with Hyder Ali, who was a tough opponent. His relationship with his uncle also began to deteriorate rapidly, finally ending in a confrontation between their armies. Raghunathrao was defeated and placed under house arrest.


Swami traces the life of Madhavrao through all the above incidents to his death at a young age due to tuberculosis.


The book explores his relationship with his mother, Gopikabai, and his wife Ramabai. It also explores his stormy relationship with his uncle, Raghunathrao. Although his mother moved away and started living separately for various reasons, the two always remained very close, and their love for each other was evident through their frequent exchange of letters.


The book paints a picture of the love between Madhavrao and Ramabai, who were married at a very young age. He had a special garden constructed for her, and Ramabai committed Sati on the funeral pyre of her husband, unable to bear his loss.


This historical novel brings out the nuances of the main character’s attributes and his relationship with his friends and enemies. It also highlights his administrative skills. Madhavrao was an able administrator and general who brought order to the Maratha Empire. He was also a ruler who was easily accessible to the general public, which made him very dear to them.

हे पुस्तक म्हणजे एक दिखावा आहे

पेशव्यांनि छ्त्रपतिंचे राज्य बुडवीले, आरमार बुडवीले, जातिंचे स्तोम माजवीले, सति प्रथा सुरु केली. छ्त्रपतिंना कैदेत टाकले नाना पेशव्याने. हे पुस्तक म्हणजे एक दिखावा आहे.
