Of Forts

सर्वांचा निर्वाह आणि दिल्लींद्रसारखा शत्रु उरावर आहे, तो आला तरी, नवे-जुने तीनशे साठ किल्ले हजरतीस आहेत. एक एक किल्ला वर्ष वर्ष लढला तरी तीनशें साठ वर्षें पाहिजेत.

शिवदिग्विजय, पृ . १९०

Everyone’s responsibility, and the ruler of Delhi, is upon us; even if he (the ruler of Delhi) comes, we have three-hundred and sixty forts — old and new. Even if each fort fights for a year, it’s a battle of three-hundred and sixty years.

Shivdigvijay, pp 190
