Who was Ranoji?

Ranoji Shinde came from an ancient Kshatriya family. The family of Ranoji Shinde became Patils or Headmen of Kanerkhed village, Satara District in Maharashtra. Ranoji Shinde’s father Jankoji Shinde was in Balaji Vishwanath’s service and Ranoji himself was brought up as a friend of Baji Rao Vishwanath.

Ranojira Shinde died in 1745 AD in Mirzapur village of Sujalpur district, where one of his two chhatrisis, located, the other is in Pushkar.
