Bihar is one of the oldest continuously inhabited places in the world with history of 3000 years. The rich culture and heritage of Bihar is evident from the innumerable ancient monuments that are dotted all over this state in eastern India. This is the place of Aryabhata, Great Ashoka, Chanakya, Mahavira, Guru Gobind Singh, Chandragupta Maurya, Vātsyāyana, Sher Shah Suri and many other great historical figures.
In 324/23 BC Chandragupta Maurya defeated Selukas Niketor, who was appointed the governor of conquered territories -- Iran, Afghanistan, and part of India -- by Alexander the Great. Chanakya then performed the marriage of Chandragupta Maurya with Helen, Selukas's daughter, in order to keep the Greeks out of India. But he made one important condition: no progeny of Helen would either succeed or claim the inheritance of the throne of Magadh. It is clear that even though 2,300 years separated them, Nehru and Chanakya were of the opinion that no person of foreign origin nor his or her progeny could sit on the throne in any state of India. Today, all one can say is, let the debate continue. Only the people can decide if history was wrong or right.

Nitish points out to glaring historical mistakes in Narendra Modi’s speech Patna,(BiharTimes): Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday took history class of BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi, and ridiculed the latter for lacing his Hunkar Rally speech with some glaring factural errors. In his 75-minute long point-by-point rebuttal of his Gujarat counterpart at Chintan Shivir in Rajgir he asked as to what type of history was Narendra Modi teaching to the people. The Bihar chief minister said that the Gujarat chief minister mixed up Chandragupta Maurya with Chandragupta of Gupta dynasty. Ashok was the grandson of Chandragupta Maurya, whose empire is known the world over. This Chandragupta was not of Gupta empire as was mentioned in the Hunkar Rally speech. Nitish asked as to how is it that Taxila has been mentioned in Bihar. “It is in Pakistan and I had the opportunity to go there during my visit to that country. Chanakya was professor in Taxila.” Pointing out to Sankarshan Thaku ...

man Kancha Ilaiah Narendra Modi has a problem with his party's intellectual base even now. In their private discussions he is seen as a man of muscle power but not mind power. Why did Narendra M o d i choose Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel as his icon, leaving aside his own party icons, Syama Prasad Mookerjee, Atal Behari Vajpajee or the icons of base organisation Rastriya Swayamsevak Sangh -Savarkar, Golwalkar or Hedgewar? If Gujarati-ness is the reason, both Mahatma Gandhi and Patel have that in common and both come from the same Congress background. Why not Gandhi then? Even Morarji Desai hails from Gujarat and he was the first Prime Minister from that state. Why not Morarji, then? Mr Modi is a shudraOBC (other backward class). He is the first shudra-OBC to be a national-level, assertive political leader and to have positioned himself as a candidate for the Prime Ministership of India. Moreover, he has emerged from a Hindu communal political party when even the Indian National Congress did not allow anybody, ...

Today I learned where the red good luck spot in the forehead bindu comes from: Cynical Chanakya, a precursor to Machiavelli, continued to serve as an advisor to his emperor Chandragupta after the establishment of the Maurya Empire. According to a popular legend mentioned in the Jain texts, Chanakya used to add small doses of poison to the food eaten by Emperor Chandragupta Maurya in order to make him immune to the poisoning attempts by the enemies. Unaware, Chandragupta once fed some of his food to his queen, Durdhara, who was seven days away from delivery. The queen, not immune to the poison, collapsed and died within a few minutes. In order to save the heir to the throne, Chanakya cut the queen's belly open and extracted the foetus just as she died. The baby was named Bindusara, because he was touched by a drop (bindu) of blood having poison.
The history of the rupees traces back to Ancient India in circa 6th century BC, ancient India was one of the earliest issuers of coins in the world,[1] along with the Chinese wen and Lydian staters. The word rūpiya is alleged to be derived from a Dravidian word rūpa, which means "wrought silver, a coin of silver",[2] in origin an adjective meaning "shapely", with a more specific meaning of "stamped, impressed", whence "coin". It is derived from the noun rūpa "shape, likeness, image". The word rūpa is being further identified as having sprung from the Dravidian ".[3]. However, an Indo-Aryan origin is more likely compare Sanskrit rūpá, n. m. A form, beauty (Rigveda), rūpaka adjective and n. m. A particular coin Pañcatantra, rūpya,*rūpiya-, adj. Beautiful, bearing a stamp Pāṇini., n. Silver Mahabharata. There is no evidence of transmission to Indo-Aryan from Dravidian and textual evidence dates to well before any references in the later Dravidian. [4] Arthashastra, written by Chanakya, prime min ...

Are you talking about Taxiles ? He was killed by Chandragupta Maurya and his lineage is uncertain
Ashoka Maurya (304–232 BCE), commonly known as Ashoka and also as Ashoka the Great, was an Indian emperor of the Maurya Dynasty who ruled almost all of the Indian subcontinent from ca. 269 BCE to 232 BCE.[1] One of India's greatest emperors, Ashoka reigned over most of present-day India after a number of military conquests. His empire stretched from the parts of the ancient territories of Khorasan, Sistan and Balochistan (unpartitioned) in what is now Afghanistan and possibly eastern Iran, through the Hindu Kush mountains in Afghanistan, to present-day Bangladesh and the Indian state of Assam in the east, and as far south as northern Kerala and Andhra Pradesh. The empire had Taxila, Ujjain and Pataliputra as its capital. In about 260 BCE Ashoka waged a bitterly destructive war against the state of Kalinga (modern Odisha).[2] He conquered Kalinga, which none of his ancestors (starting from Chandragupta Maurya) had done. His reign was headquartered in Magadha (present-day Bihar). He embraced Buddhism afte ...

New show after Bigg Boss ends TV actor Sanaya Irani, who’s popular for her roles in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon and Chhanchhan, is back on the tube once again. She will be seen playing the role of a Rajasthani bride alongside actor Ashish Sharma, who portrays the role of an army personnel in the new show, Rang Rasiya that starts mid December, replacing reality show Bigg Boss. Ashish, whose character is called Rudra, was earlier seen playing the role of Chandragupta Maurya on TV. “The show is about a girl who believes in love and how her path crosses with a man, who doesn’t believe in it. The crew has been shooting in the desert terrains in the Rann of Kutch,” says a source from the sets.
"When we think of Gupta dynasty, we remember Chandragupta Maurya." "Taxila is in Bihar." "Alexander was defeated by Biharis" "Shyama Prasad Mookerjee was a revolutionist. He died in 1930.

"Nehru didnt attend Sardar Patel's funeral" i don comment on MODIfication of India, but MODIfication of Indian history has definitely begun:-)
Vishkanya: Chanakya was a brilliant brahmin and politician who lived during the time of Chandragupta Maurya i.e. 300BC; like all brahmins,he too found a way to harass the shudras i.e. Dalits. He started the practice of 'vishkanya' who were young girls trained to be killers. Anyone who had intercourse with vishkanyas would die from poisoning. To be trained as a vishkanya,young shudra girls were fed a small dose of poison on a daily basis. Some of these girls survived but a majority did not. Dear friends,the point of all this is to make you aware that brahmins have been exploiting dalits since 300BC ,that is even before the birth of Jesus Christ and even before the birth of Lord Buddha! Please put an end to this menace and secure a better future for generations to come
Satire- Not to miss: Modi sir's history class Scene: A group of impish-looking students are sitting in a class in session.

Some other time you forget it. That last one plagues me. A student: Sir, you were telling about how Biharis defeated Alexander The Great. Modi: Oh yes. See, how I forget. Anyway, I told you how Alexander's army conquered the entire world, but was defeated by the Biharis. That's the might of this land. Another student: But sir, Alexander defeated by the Biharis...?! Modi: That's why I keep saying an understanding of politics is crucial to learning history. Not all gaffes are meant for guffaws. Historical gaffes can be political. Likewise political gaffes can be historic, too! What I meant to say about Alexander was not easy to understand. Let me explain. A young Chandragupta Maurya met Alexander at on ...
FOR THOSE GIVING LESSONS IN HISTORY TO Narendra Modi, 321–317 BCE - Chandragupta Maurya, founder of the Mauryan Empire, makes himself master of northern and north-western India, including Panjab. Chandragupta Maurya's advisor Kautilya (also known as Chanakya) was a teacher at Takṣaśilā. Under Chandragupta, Taxila became a provincial capital. During the reign of Chandragupta's grandson Aśoka, Takṣaśilā became a great Buddhist centre of learning. Ashoka encouraged trade by building roads, most notably a highway of more than 1,600 kilometers (1,000 miles) linking his capital Pataliputra with Taxila. 2nd century BCE - After three generations of Maurya rule, Taxila was annexed by the Indo-Greek kingdom of Bactria. So Takshila University can very well be recalled with the Golden Period of the History of Bihar, the History of UK will always reflect the work they did in India and by the standards adopted by JD(u) and Congress we cannot talk about the Harrapan Civilisation as an Indian Civilisation as . ...

Narendra Modi does not know the difference between Chandragupta of the Maurya dynasty and Chandragupta II of the Gupta dynasty.
The well meaning Emperor Asoka is at the centre of numerous conspiracy theories. I have earlier mentioned one, in which he is accused of recreating Sri Lankan religious places and placenames in India to prove that the Sri Lankan born Gautama Buddha was actually Indian. Another such theory, current in India, is that the Emperor Asoka lived thousands of years ago, but that his tradition has been deliberately confused with that of the 'Devanampiya Piyadassi' of the rock edicts, in order to prove that Chandragupta Maurya was contemporary with Seleucus Nicator. The Chandragupta synchronism was possible because of the identification in the Mahawamsa of Asoka as 'Devanampiya'; however, the discovery of the Maski Edict in Karnataka subsequently proved the correspondence, as it mentions 'Devanpiya Asoka'.
Ancient World History The Ancient World Prehistoric Eras to 600 c.e. Pataliputra Pataliputra Pataliputra Pataliputra (now Patna) is located at the confluence of the Ganges and Son Rivers in northeastern India. It was the capital city of the Mauryan Empire c. 326–184 b.c.e., when it was perhaps the largest city in the world, and again of the Gupta Empire, 320–550 c.e. Alexander the Great invaded northwestern India in 326 b.c.e. The invasion had a catalytic effect in inspiring an Indian prince, Chandragupta Maurya, to form the first empire on the subcontinent. Chandragupta might have met Alexander and, taking advantage of the latter’s death, drove the Greek forces out of India, subdued the tribes and states in northern India, and proclaimed himself ruler at Pataliputra, the capital of a previous local state. Chandragupta fought and then made peace with Seleucus Nicator, Alexander’s successor in Asia and founder of the Seleucid Empire, who sent an ambassador named Megasthenes to Pataliputra. Megasthe ...

"Chanakya's Chant" by Ashwin Sanghi tells parallel stories of historical figure Acharya Chanakya and his wily ways to unite scattered India under the rule of Chandragupta Maurya in the past and Gangasagar Mishra's usage of political machinations to establish Chandini Gupta to the post of the premier of modern India. In fact, Mishra is supposed to be the modern incarnation of Chanakya while Chandini of Chandragupta. There are plenty of political conspiracies carried out by the politicians, some believable some not, to ascend to the throne. I don't want to give away the story but will suffice to say that I had a guilty pleasure reading the intrigues in the form of Saam, Daam, Danda, Bhed presented in the novel. But I remained skeptic about the easy political coups carried out by Gangasagar and his cohorts in modern India. The writer has carried out good research into ancient India and also into the caste/religion-based politics of modern India to pull off a political thriller and also has proved that he po ...

Best article I have read on The Great Shivaji... How Small Shivaji Was? Shivaji created a kingdom. History remembers him as the creator of the Maratha dynasty. There are at least 500 known dynasties in India. All had founders. Shivaji is one of them. So how is he different? Almost all the realms were created by exploiting the political turmoil of their time. A strong satrap of a weak king forms his own kingdom, a powerful general or minister dethrones an inept king and starts his own monarchy. This has always been the route of all the founders right from Chandragupta Maurya. They get ready made royal army, administration and other functionaries. But is there someone like Shivaji who had to build his kingdom from the scratch?, someone who did not get a ready made army of thousands of trained soldiers but had to build it brick by brick from among the peasants and the moment he started his efforts, his tiny kingdom was attacked by formidable enemies. Shivaji’s neighbours – the Adilshah and the Kutubshah ...

Taxiles or Omphis another local North Indian king, wanted to defeat his eastern adversary Porus in a turf war and he invited Alexander the great to defeat Porus. This marked the first intrusion of the West in the Indian subcontinent and North India in general. But such was the valor of Porus and his kingdom forces in Punjab, that despite being defeated, he was appreciated by Alexander the Great for his skill and valor and he was granted further territories in the North.[18] The other Indian kings did not like the fact that Porus was now an ally of Western forces. In less than ten years another Indian king Chandragupta Maurya[19] defeated the forces and conquered the Northern Indian regions up to the Kabul river (in modern day Afghanistan). Despite the Greek & Macedonian rule in Northwest India, no trace of either the M170 or the M35 genetic markers associated with Greeks and Macedonians have been found in Punjab. to be continued...

MODI'S CHATTER-BATTER TONGUE - UNENDING EMBARASSSMENTS ? - The frenzied , blind modi-fied minds claim that the speech – which showed his complete ignorance about the important milestone in the labrynthine passage of his own organization, the formation of Bhartiya Jan Sangh, the first political platform launched by RSS itself, – was " just slip of tongue " and not much should be read into it. If for arguments sake one agrees with the contention then immediately the next question arises about his string of speeches where he had made outrageous, false claims and even after being pointed out by critics the factual mistakes in his presentation did not deem it necessary to correct them and make necessary amends. A sample of his completely false claims would be in order - Nehru did not even attend Patel’s funeral – despite proof to the contrary -Alexander had come to Bihar and was defeated by Biharis – despite the obvious fact that Alexander never crossed the Ganges - Placing Taxila in Bihar although i ...

POLITICIANS NEED CRASH COURSE IN HISTORY: Politicians are known to subtely twist historical facts to suit themselves. But, in today's world, with its easy access to information, such sins of omission or commission are all too easily caught out. And with 24 hour television, the common refrain of being misquoted is also one of diminishing returns. While some of these gaffes are controversial and insensitive, like Congress leader Beni Prasad Verma saying that "I am happy with this inflation", many are comical and some are just plain fudged facts. Comments that twist historical facts expose the poor grasp our leaders have over our own past. On Tuesday, at the inauguration of the renovated Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Memorial Museum in Ahmedabad, Gujarat chief minister and Prime Ministerial aspirant Narendra Modi reportedly said that Jawaharlal Nehru did not attend Patel's funeral, which is not the case. Other instances where Modi has got his facts wrong are in saying that Chandragupta Maurya belonged to the Gupt ...
Alexander's conquests had been spectacular, but he had not conquered India. On the contrary. Not even the Punjab and the Indus valley were safe possessions of his kingdom. Before Alexander had died in 323, he had redeployed nearly all his troops west of the Indus. For the first time, he had lost part of his empire. On the other hand, his invasion changed the course of Indian history. In Taxila, a young man named Chandragupta Maurya had seen the Macedonian army, and -believing that anything a European could do an Indian could do better- decided to train an army on a similar footing. In 321, he seized the throne of Magadha. The Mauryan Empire was born.
QUESTIONS TO Mr. ARUN SHAHI You are so prompt to point out follies of Rahul Gandhi, Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi at the drop of a hat. A gentleman aspiring to be the Prime Minister Of the country, if he makes such STUPID REFERENCES (during his speech at Hunkaar Rally in Patna in front of a record gathering) from the Indian History . Is it sensible to place the reigns of this great country in the hand of such a fool ? Or he thinks Bihari's to be stupid and can get away with any distorted facts to make his speech sound pompous ? Someone who says that Chandragupta Maurya was from Gupta Dynasty and Alexander was defeated on the banks of river Ganges ? Mr. Shahi I expect you to be equally vocal here :P
Sources close to the show inform us that Chandragupta Maurya fame Aashish Sharma has been locked to play the hero opposite Sanaya Irani.
Commemoration of Victories on Vijayadashmi Special on Vijayadashmi RSS marches ahead on Vivekananda’s Mission Dr Ashok G Modak The festival of Vijayadashmi is significant for two reasons. First it reminds us of our also it secondly and tradition victorious invites our attention to the birth anniversary of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). As for the first dimension we all know that our brave ancestors enriched our tradition through achieving victories over evil forces. It was on the day of Vijayadashmi that Sri established and Ravana defeated Ram Dharma Rajya. And in subsequent years great personalities like Chandragupta Maurya, Pushya-mitra Shunga, Vikrama- ditya, Yashodharma, Krishna Devarai, Shivaji and so on carried forward the same legacy. We are indeed inheritors of victories. What is essential is to note that we insist on pure and sacred means for achieving victories. We in other words refuse to compromise on principles. We, moreover, look at these victories as instruments for enhancing the for ...
