    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.

  3. 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!
