Wagh Nakh: The Legendary Claw of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj

In the annals of Indian history, the name Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj resonates as a symbol of valor, courage, and indomitable spirit. Among the many legendary artifacts associated with this iconic warrior king, one stands out in particular – the fearsome Wagh Nakh, or tiger claw. Wagh Nakh holds a place of reverence in the hearts of Maharaj's followers, as it embodies the strength and ferocity of the Maratha Empire. But what exactly is Wagh Nakh, and why does it hold such significance?



Wagh Nakh is a unique weapon crafted in the shape of a tiger's claw, designed to be worn like a glove. Made of sturdy metal and adorned with intricate engravings, it served as both a symbol of Maharaj's authority and a formidable weapon in battle.


Wagh Nakh was bestowed upon Maharaj by the goddess Bhavani herself, who blessed him with the strength and courage to defend his kingdom against tyranny and oppression. With Wagh Nakh at his side, Maharaj led his troops into countless battles, striking fear into the hearts of his enemies with each swipe of his claw.


But Wagh Nakh was more than just a weapon of war – it was a symbol of Maharaj's unwavering commitment to justice and righteousness. Whether facing the deceitful Mughal Empire, Maharaj wielded Wagh Nakh with honor and integrity, earning the respect and admiration of both friend and foe alike.


Maharaj’s encounter with the tyrannical general Afzal Khan is a must read for children. Maharaj killed the deceitful Afzal Khan using this famous Wagh Nakh.


Wagh Nakh was taken by the British and is at display at Victoria & Albert Museum. Indian government is planning to get the Wagh Nakh back to India on a 3-year lease and will be displayed at various museums across India.

STEAM Challenge

STEAM Challenge: Build a Paper Bridge


Objective: The objective of this STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) challenge is to design and build a paper bridge that can support the weight of small objects. Materials Needed:


  • Several sheets of sturdy paper (such as cardstock or construction paper)

  • Scissors

  • Ruler

  • Small weights (coins, marbles, or small toys)

  • Optional: tape or glue


  1. Brainstorm and Plan: Gather your materials and start by brainstorming different bridge designs. Consider the types of bridges you've seen before (e.g., arch bridges, beam bridges, suspension bridges) and think about how you can adapt those designs using paper.

  2. Design and Cut: Once you have a plan in mind, use scissors to cut the paper into strips or shapes that you can use to build your bridge. Experiment with different sizes and shapes to see what works best. 

  3. Assemble the Bridge: Begin assembling your bridge by connecting the paper pieces together. You can fold, roll, or stack the paper to create the structure of your bridge. Use tape or glue to hold the pieces together if needed.

  4. Test the Strength: Once your bridge is complete, it's time to put it to the test! Place the bridge between two supports (such as books or stacks of paper) and carefully place small weights on top of it, one at a time. See how much weight your bridge can support before it.

  5. Reflect and Improve: After testing your bridge, take some time to reflect on what worked well and what could be improved. Think about how you can strengthen your bridge design to support even more weight. You can repeat the process and try building different variations of your bridge to see which one performs the best.
