An Indian Civilizational Perspective

When you cannot withstand… Chanakya's prescription

Chanakya was by far the best ever TV serial to come on Indian TV. It was done so well, the dialogs were precise and incisive. This exchange between Chanakya and Kalyani (wife of Ambi) is very reflective of that. What do you think of it?

    Dear Desh

    Chanakya was a ‘Yug-Purush’ and the serial Chanakya really did justice to this great Leader, Chanakya.

    Thanks for reminding about Chanakya with such a central dialogue of the serials’ episodes.

    I agree Mahendra! I always say that India needs Chanakyas and not Gandhis in India to make it succeed! Our misfortune is that we have get people who are practical & flexible with respect to themselves but “principled” with respect to the nation and not the vice-versa! Chanakya was very principled with respect to his own work but he was able to bring together a nation that was very rare for the amount of time and resources he had!
