Friends Information mentioned in the above mentioned article is wrong. I have also send mail to the author regarding the same. Here I am posting the Information about Baji Prabhu Deshpande & Murar Baji
Read your article on mayboli. It looks like you are bit confused between MURAR BAJI & BAJI PRABHU DESHPANDE
According to me these were two different people \and not one as you mentioned in your article.
Murar Baji - Yes you are right he belonged to More's and after mores defeat he joined swarajya some where in 1656, very true. But then he remained at Purandar He was made killedar of purandar. He faught very bravely against Mughals and retained the Fort Purandar from losing it to mughals. You can see his statue on Purandar Fort Do visit there. Besides this he was Deshastha Brahmin.
REF - you can search on google images for murar baji's images & try this link also
Baji Prabhu Deshapnde - Baji prabhu deshpande was a Sardar of swarajya and he belonged to panhala. He used to live in a nearby village there. He helped Raje shivaji in resqueing from panalha to Vishal gad. and the pawan khind story that we all knows. But he was PRABHU DESHPANDE (CKP).
REF - you can google search images for baji prabhu deshpande or you can visit panhala there you will find his statue. The anatomy of that statue is simplyt amazing you should see it. you can also see Shiva Kashid's statue at the entrance of panhala.
SIMILARITIES - They both were deshpande. They both were true warriors. The both faught for swarajya. The Period of both of them is also same. Both of them were brilliant in TALWAR BAJI & DANDAPATTA.
One more thing I forgot to mention. Baji Prabhu Deshpande was the person who introduced JIVA MAHALA (Who saved maharaj from Sayyad Banda at the time of war against Afzal khan)
P.S. - It is possible that I might be wrong or I might have made some mistake here. So I request you to also cross check the references. DO REPLY.
It is my humble request to you all please do cross check the references and study material you are using for your study to avoid such mis understanding.
Thanks and regards,
