He was the most learned of his times, one with complete knowledge of political science, economics along with the art of war fighting supported by the most powerful knowledge of ancient spiritual practices, he was the most powerful strategist who succeeded in uniting Bharat against army of the demigod, alexander the great!
Though he possesed all the knowledge and skills and the talent to rule the country and get himselves as the most powerful king, he rather chose to be a king maker then to be a king himself! History knows him as the most brilliant strategist, Chanakya!
He gave the country the one of the best maurian kings- chandragupta!
In those days of utter chaos in Bharat, when it was all divided and wars happened amongst each other, even one single region posed so many cruelties which would have taken a life time to be fought against them, Chanakya looking at the bigger picture united the whole nation in order to stand up against Alexander, whilst the the small regions were automatically freed from the clutches of internal rages and tyrannical rulers!!
A True Master, Teacher,reformer is the one Who does not aim to take power in his hands but concentrates on the bigger picture and creates not just one but many like him leaders!
I feel this the very need of India today, where there is no lack of young blood, enthusiasm, eagerness to serve and the passion to reform but a proper guidence to channelize the passion and enthusiasm into productive reformation...
