?A learned man and a king are not equal, as the former is respected everywhere, but the latter only in his own dominions.? Canny, contemplative and courageous, Chanakya is known as one of India?s most multifaceted and enduring gurus. His smart, sage advice, captured forever in the twin classic treatises ? the Arthashastra and the Nitishastra ? has both the detailing of a draughtsman and the wide-ranging wisdom of a genius. Scholar, teacher, visionary, political strategist, economic philosopher and royal adviser, Chanakya put forth invaluable lessons that changed the course of history. Humiliated by Dhana Nanda, the ruler of Magadha, Chanakya turned adversity into strength and challenge into opportunity. Through clever diplomatic manoeuvres and wise confrontations, he choreographed young Chandragupta?s rise as the founder of the Mauryan empire, the first of its kind in power and territorial extent. Melding his knowledge with a shrewd observance of life, Chanakya outlined political and economic philosophies in a long-lasting body of pithy truths. And that is why, centuries later, his work and his words matter in today?s world. This book brings together the transformative incidents that shaped Chanakya?s life, and his most important sayings. From his understanding of the ideal way of life, you too can learn to be a little bit like Chanakya. PLUS * Flipbook action page corner for a touch of fun * Timeline: A chronology of Chanakya?s life * Bonus Teachings!: A hundred tactical tips from Chanakya?s treasury of wisdom
