Law 22: use the surrender tactic: transform weakness into power.
Well, as a child when I read the story of Shivaji I did not liked his method of fighting immensely powerful enemy, the Mughal empire.
He used to fight guerilla war, if cornered used to surrender and then once safe struck back with all the power he could muster.
But with age and maturity I realized how intelligent he was, if he went on a head-on collision with a rhinoceros a tiger will be ripped to pieces, so he strikes in stealth, that does not makes him dumb or coward!
So I too have followed this policy in my life, I waited for my time with immense patience, am yet to reach there but… have tried my best to expose them.
