The Exhibition is blending Art and History. Art by the Rajastani miniature artists in water colours based on Archival records from the GOI Department of museums. History comes to life with the copies of original letters and court documents from Rajastani and Moghul courts.Why Shivaji? Shivaji, was endowed with talents of the highest order and a clear vision, the only one who stood-up to the injustice. He had also an inspiring and endearing personality which spontaneously commanded respect, loyalty and the highest sacrifices from his devoted soldiery and peasants.Shivaji is relevant today because, He embodied all the qualities that politicians should possess, but do not always have: he was just, firm and stood for the weak; he was an honest and able administrator; he confronted the enemy and was not cowed into submission; he was devoted to Mother India, who appeared to him as Bhavani; he was ruthless with his enemies, but spared women, children; he had respect for all religions.

Other FACT INDIA initiatives include Sikhs: the defenders of Indian Dharma, Aurangzeb as he was according to the Moghul records, ASRU: Exhibition on persecution of Minorities in Bangladesh, Pathetic state of Kashmiri Pandits, Ahilyabai Holkar, the Warrior Queen, Naxalism, a threat to the Unified Nation of India.
