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.

Map of Chandragupta Empire Foundation of the Maurya Empire A major part of the credit for the building of the Maurya Empire goes to Chanakya. He was a teacher at the Takshila University when Alexander started invading India. Since the King of Takshila and Gandhara had surrendered to Alexander, Chanakya sought help from other kings to unite and fight against him. Porus (Parvateshwar), a king of Punjab, challenged Alexander at the Battle of the Hydaspes River. However, he got defeated in the battle. Chanakya also sought help from Dhana Nanda, the ruler of Nanda Empire, but was refused. After this incident, he started instilling the idea of building an empire that could fight against foreign invasion into his disciple, Chandragupta. Chanakya became his chief adviser or Prime Minister. Death It is believed that in the last days of his life, King Chandragupta Maurya gave up his throne and adopted asceticism under the Jain saint, Bhadrabahu Swami. He breathed his last in 298 BC at Shravanabelagola (in present d ...

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 ...

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.

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. The teacher is seated in a chair on a slightly-elevated podium and speaking to them. Modi: History is treacherous. At times, you make it. At times, it makes you. Sometimes it forgets you. 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 . ...

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 ...
Modi should take lessons in history and good manners Jist of an article by Amulya Ganguli, political analyst, in Gulf News& Khaleej Times, the only newspapers widely circulated in UAE including Dubai. BJP is obviously concerned that having built up Modi as a larger-than-life figure, it doesn’t want to expose his feet of clay Modi has been ambushed by his mistakes that are piling up& cannot be easily rectified for it is a part of his personality and background& outcome of his school record as an “average” student Modi’s first blunder was the erroneous claim that Nehru did not attend Sardar Patel’s funeral. Then came the other blunder that no money was spent for specific years during UPA regime to celebrate Patel’s birthdays or to memorise Patel on his death anniversaries His mixing up of two towering personalities of ancient India — Chandragupta Maurya and Chandragupta II of the Gupta dynasty. This deficiency was substantiated by his assertion that Alexander was stopped by the Ganga. Consider ...

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 ...

The name Bihar derived from the word 'Vihara'means monastery. It was a great religious center for Jains, Hindus and Buddhists. From the 6th century BC to the 5th century AD Bihar was ruled by a succession of rulers and major empires. In the 3rd century BC Chandragupta Maurya ruled from the great city of Pataliputra (patna).His grandson Emperor Ashoka succeeded him. The Magadha dynasty rose to glory during the reign of the Guptas in 4th and 5th centuries. The dynasty was followed by the Palas of Bengal who ruled until 1197.The Muslim rulers also left indelible mark on the region from the 12th to 17th century.
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

Vijaya Dashmi Also commonly known as Dashera, this festival occurs on Aso sud 10. Origin There are many stories related to this festival: 1) As we saw in Navratri, the Lord's Shakti, Parvati, vanquished the demon Mahishasur on the 10th day after a 9-day battle. This is cited in the Skanda Puran. The sentiment here is that the uncontrolled indriyas are only conquered by the Lord's Shakti. 2) On this day Lord Ram vanquished Ravan. Therefore people celebrate the Lord's victory by burning Ravan's effigy on this day. 3) Dhaumya rishi's son, Mahaar married Shami, daughter of Aarva rishi, of Malwa. After marriage both were on their way to have darshan and blessings of Shaunak rishi. On the way they met Bhrachundi rishi who had a trunk on his head. Seeing this the two made fun of him. The rishi cursed them and both turned into trees. For succor both prayed to Ganeshji. He blessed them that they would be offered worship. From this day people offer pujan to the Mahaar tree and Shami tree (commonly known as 'Khijdo' ...

According to the myths their great-grand forefather, Parmar, was created out of fire by Inder Devta, the god of fire, at Mount Abu. It is said that as the newly created man had come out from fire saying “mar, mar” loudly, he came to be known as parmar, and Abu, Dhar, and Ujjain were assigned to him as a territory. The 4 clans known as Agnikula were the Panwar, Chauhan, Parihar, and Chalukya or Solanki.

Historically, it is to the credit of the Indian Army that it has fulfilled its role as an organ of the State; it has functioned effectively in every type of role, in spite of the general lack of a supportive government environment by way of adequate finances, resources, equipment, personnel policies, or higher political direction. A nation’s military provides what is called a hard-edged back-up to its international standing. A strong military — and especially a powerful, well-trained, fully-equipped army — acts as a deterrent against adversaries. It is therefore essential that the nation’s decision-makers consciously back the army and provide it with the support it needs to meet diverse challenges that exist and are likely to come up in the coming decade. So far, the Indian Army has fulfilled its role in nation building admirably well. All of us — ordinary citizens, media persons, politicians, bureaucrats — must continue to back the nation’s strongest asset and further strengthen it, if we d ...

Thought Provoker: The Tragedy of the Indian Army by Nitin Gokhale September 27, 2013 [In the mad race to boost circulation and viewer ratings, the media may have, in one go, started the process of demolishing one of the last institutions that has stood rock solid in defence of idea that is India.] In my three decades of reporting on the Indian military, I have never felt more uneasy about the military-media interface as I have in the past three months. This is not because the media has been accused of being sensationalist or because many unsavoury truths about internal rivalry and groupism in the military brass have created bad blood in the top hierarchy. My unease stems from the damage that the events of the past few months have inflicted on the average Indian soldier. For at least a quarter of a century now, we have been lamenting the steadily diminishing status of the ordinary Indian soldier in society; that soldiering is no longer respected as a noble profession in our rural areas; that the jawan stru ...

PATNA AT A GLANCE The history and tradition of Patna go back to the earliest dawn of civilization. The original name of Patna was Pataliputra or Patalipattan and its history makes a start from the century 600 B.C. Patna covers area of 42 sq km. The name Patna has undergone many changes at its earliest stages like Pataligram, Kusumpur, Patliputra, Azimabad, etc., ultimately terminating to the present one. Chandragupta Maurya made it his capital in the 4th century A.D. Thereafter the city lost its importance until Sherkhan Suri rose into power in the early 16th century A.D. Another version that comes to focus is that there existed a village named Pattan or Patthan, which later turned into Patna.It has been said that Pataliputra was founded by Ajatashatru. Patna, therefore, has become inextricably bound up with the ancient Pataliputra. The ancient village was named ‘Patali’ and the word ‘Pattan’ was added to it. Greek history mentions ‘Palibothra’ which perhaps is Pataliputra itself .Ajatashatru ...

Bihar is an Indian State in the eastern part of India. The state is the 12th largest state, area wise and is third most populous state. River Ganges intersects Bihar into two parts. The state has a forest area of 6764 km². Patna is the capital city of Bihar and the languages spoken are Bhojpuri, Maithili, Magadhi, Bajjika and Angika. Four out of the five greatest emperors in India belonged to this part, namely Samudragupta, Ashoka, Vikramaditya and Chandragupta Maurya. Bihar in the ancient period was the epicenter of learning, culture and power. The city Pataliputra from this state was an integral part of Indian civilization. Bihar houses the Nalanda University, which is the world’s oldest university and had students from across the world.

Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda handed over the Rs.10 lakh reward in the form of a fixed deposit and a certificate to the boy. The boy's name recalls the author of "Arthashastra" (Economics), a treatise of political economy, and advisor of Chandragupta Maurya who ruled a vast swathe of North India in the third century BC. "The state government would provide every possible support to enable him to further excel in the field of education," Hooda announced, after honouring the boy, a resident of a village in Karnal district, 140 km from Chandigarh.See More
Mahajanapadas: This period saw the second major rise in urbanization in India after the Indus Valley Civilization. The word "maha" means great and the word "janapada" means foothold of a tribe. In the later Vedic Age a number of small kingdoms or city states had mushroomed across the subcontinent and also find mention in early Buddhist and Jain literature as far back as 1000 BCE. By 500 BCE, sixteen "republics" or Mahajanapadas has been established, namely; Kasi, Kosala, Anga, Magadha, Vajji (or Vriji),Malla, Chedi, Vatsa (or Vamsa), Kuru, Panchala, Matsya, Surasena, Assaka, Avanti,Gandhara, and Kamboja.

The abject material and cultural poverty of the west for thousands of years due to scarcity of natural resources gave birth to a semi-civilized culture. Comparatively speaking it was a barbaric culture spending most of its time and energies in satisfying their physiological needs and lacking in the fineries of mind and richness of material culture. Stories of India’s wealth and resources circulated allover the world and the thought of the west was mainly centered on somehow acquiring India’s wealth to remove their poverty. They did not have the insight of wisdom to understand the secrets of nature. This was a culture which murdered all its prophets even before they could really contribute their share of acquired wisdom to the welfare of the society – a society which had no place for the virtues of mankind in its single minded pursuit of material in an economy of scarcity with fierce social competition. The first known organized attempt of the west to satisfy its lust for India’s gold was made by A ...

Ancient India The History of India begins with the Indus Valley Civilization and the coming of the Aryans. These two phases are generally described as the pre-Vedic and Vedic periods. The earliest literary source that sheds light on India's past is the Rig Veda. It is difficult to date this work with any accuracy on the basis of tradition and ambiguous astronomical information contained in the hymns. It is most likely that Rig Veda was composed between 1,500 B.C. and 1,000 B.C. In the fifth century, large parts of India were united under Ashoka. The 6th Century B.C. was a period of great tumult in India. The kingdom of Magadha, one of the 16 great Janapadas had become paramount over other kingdoms of the Ganges Valley. This period also saw the emergence of various heterodox sects in India. This was the time when Buddhism and Jainism emerged as popular protestant movements to pose a serious challenge to Brahmanic orthodoxy. This period was followed by the Mauryas of whom the most famous was Ashoka the Grea ...
*SOME HISTORICAL ISSUES OF SINDH* * The Vedas (Rigveda) praises the Sindhu, the cradle of civilization. "Sindhu in might surpasses all the streams that flow. His roar is lifted up to heaven above the earth; he puts forth endless vigour with a flash of light . Even as cows with milk rush to their calves, so other rivers roar into the Sindhu. As a warrior-king leads other warriors, so does Sindhu lead other rivers. Rich in good steeds is Sindhu, rich in gold, nobly fashioned, rich in ample wealth." In this hymn Sindhu, unlike other rivers, is considered masculine. Other references are, when the Vedic seer invokes heaven and earth, he also invokes the Sindhu. The Veda refers to the Ganges only twice; but it makes as many as thirty references to the Sindhu. This is the Great Sindhu that gave Sindh its name. In Ramayana, Sindh was part of Dasharatha's empire. When Kekayi goes into a sulk, Dasaratha tells her: "The sun does not set on my empire.

The Prasiane Island of River Indus in Sindh… Megasthenes (350 – 290 BCE) was a Greek ethnographer in the Hellenistic period, author of the work Indica. He was born in Asia Minor (modern day Turkey) and became an ambassador of Seleucus I of Syria possibly to Chandragupta Maurya in Pataliputra, India. However the exact date of his embassy is uncertain. Scholars place it before 298 BC, the date of Chandragupta's death. Arrian explains that Megasthenes lived in Arachosia, with the satrap Sibyrtius, from where he visited India. Giving description of Prasiane Island Megasthenes says, “The Indus Called by the inhabitants Sindus, rising on that spur of Mount Caucasus which is called Paropamisus, from sources fronting the sunrise, receives also itself nineteen rivers, of which the most famous are the Hydaspes, which has four tributaries; the Cantabra, which has three; the Acesines and the Hypasis, which are both navigable; but nevertheless, having no very great supply of water, it is nowhere broader than fif ...

Maurya Empire Modern day Pakistan was conquered by Chandragupta Maurya, who overthrew the powerful Nanda Dynasty of Magadha and established Maurya Empire: He conquered the trans-Indus region to the west, which was under Macedonian rule - annexing Balochistan, south eastern parts of Iran and much of what is now Afghanistan, including the modern Herat and Kandahar provinces - and then defeated the invasion led by Seleucus I, a Greek general from Alexander's army. Seleucus is said to have reach a peace treaty with Chandragupta by giving control of the territory south of the Hindu Kush to him upon intermarriage and 500 elephants. Alexander took these away from the Indo-Aryans and established settlements of his own, but Seleucus Nicator gave them to Sandrocottus (Chandragupta), upon terms of intermarriage and of receiving in exchange 500 elephants. —Strabo, 64 BC–24 AD The Empire was expanded into India's central and southern regions by the emperors Chandragupta and Bindusara, but it excluded a small porti ...
For about eighteen hundred years, from 6th Century BC to the beginning of 13th Century AD, Indian universities like Takshashila, Nalanda, Vikramashila, Valabhi, Somapura and Odantapuri had dominated the world education system, said the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee at the convocation of Himachal Pradesh University (HPU). The President said that Takshashila became the meeting point of four civilizations – Indian, Persian, Greek and Chinese – and was frequented by legendary personalities like Chandragupta Maurya, Chanakya, Panini, St. Thomas, Faxian, Charaka and Democritus. With focus on efficient management, these ancient universities became the colossus of the famed Indian higher education system. But today, our universities are nowhere in the top global rankings. “We have the capability to revive our leadership position in higher education. For that, we must strengthen our drive to effect innovative changes to develop our universities into world class academic institutions,” he said. He sa ...

Chandragupta Maurya: c.321 BC The plains of North India are in a politically unsettled state when Alexander the Great marches into the subcontinent in 327 BC. But it is the dissatisfaction of his own soldiers, rather than any defeat at Indian hands, which turns him back. And for the next twenty years northwest India remains under Greek control. Soon after the conqueror's departure, one of India's greatest dynasties is established by Chandragupta Maurya. In about 321 he seizes the throne of Magadha (now Patna). By 305 he is strong enough to force the withdrawal of Alexander's successor in the region, Seleucus. The Greek retreat through the Khyber Pass is sweetened by a gift from Chandragupta of 500 elephants. Asoka: c.272-232 BC The Mauryan kingdom is the first in India's history to deserve the broader title of empire. It reaches its greatest extent under Chanadragupta's grandson, Asoka, who defeats his brothers in a battle for the throne in about 272 BC. According to later Buddhist chronicles he murders t ...
The Mauryan Empire : Although Indian accounts to a large extent ignored Alexander the Great's Indus campaign in 326 B.C., Greek writers recorded their impressions of the general conditions prevailing in South Asia during this period. Thus, the year 326 B.C. provides the first clear and historically verifiable date in Indian History. A two-way cultural fusion between several Indo-Greek elements--especially in art, architecture, and coinage--occurred in the next several hundred years. North India's political landscape was transformed by the emergence of Magadha in the eastern Indo-Gangetic Plain. In 322 B.C., Magadha, under the rule of Chandragupta Maurya, began to assert its hegemony over neighboring areas. Chandragupta, who ruled from 324 to 301 B.C., was the architect of the first Indian imperial power--the Mauryan Empire (326-184 B.C.)--whose capital was Pataliputra, near modern-day Patna, in Bihar. Situated on rich alluvial soil and near mineral deposits, especially iron, Magadha was at the center of b ...
Early Life of Ashoka - "The Cruel Ashoka" The early life of this great emperor is stained with the blood of his brothers Ashoka was born in the great Maurya dynasty founded by Chandragupta Maurya. His father was Bindusara who was the son of Chandragupta Maurya. Ashoka started his career as a young general but he rose in ranks quickly to become a ruthless warrior and able statesman. His activities and quick rise to power allerted his half brother Sushima who became wary of Ashoka's intentions towards the Maurya throne and he was sent on exile to Kalinga. He returned to Pataliputra after two years and was again sent to Ujjain to subdue a rebellion. There she met Devi, daughter of a Buddhist merchant and married her. Meanwhile Bindusara died and Sushima in attempting to kill Ashoka's new born child ended up killing Ashoka's wife Devi. As the legend goes, Ashoka was so infuriated by this incident that he attacked the Maurya capital Pataliputra and beheaded all his half brothers including Sushima and ascended ...

For all the talk about Narendra Modi being a Strongman i still believe he's our best hope ,why? because history has shown us that only when India has had an undisputed strongman on the throne of Delhi has the country really progressed from the undisputed rule of Chandragupta Maurya & Asoka the great to the All encompassing reign of "Akbar Mahan" and the post independence governments of Indira Gandhi and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru we have seen that only when decision making ability is firmly encompassed in the centre do we grow. Yes there can be mistakes and debacles as well like 1962 if the said leader loses his foresight but that's a risk i'm willing to take in the face of the sloth that has crept in during the past decade.

He needed a sum total of 17 visits to India to complete his gold quest. 7) Mohammad Ghauri followed him with similar intentions, but decided to avoid the trouble and simply stay back. And then he died. 8) He left his slave Qutub-ud-din Aibak to do all the ruling. His most significant achievement was to build one pointless tower called "Qutub Minar". 9) Then came a Muslim queen, underlining our credentials ...

Hope we are still teaching Chanakya and Chandragupta Maurya in our Indian History courses at DU !

24. NAYARS- KERALA: Nairs are a warrior community of Kerala just like Mudiraju bunts in Telugu and Tuluva speaking lands. This is the best known of the Malayali caste groups: most of the land-holders and ex-warriors who are now identified as Nayars. Some of the nairs use Pillai surname and Pillais are a subcaste of Tamil Muthurajas. Middle age South Indian History, historians, and foreign travelers referred to the Nairs as a dignified martial nobility. The earliest reference to Nairs comes from the Greek ambassador Megasthenes. In his accounts of ancient India, he refers to the "Nayars of Malabar" and the "Kingdom of Chera". The Nayars are one of the few known matrilineal civilizations in existence. Matrilineal families are those where descent is traced in the female line, from mothers to daughters. In this unique society, women are valued members of the familyNayars are said to be a Dravidian community who were the military gentry of the land.

In popular culture Kautilya's role in the formation of the Mauryan Empire is the essence of a historical/spiritual novel The Courtesan and the Sadhu by Dr. Mysore N. Prakash. In Santosh Sivan's 2001 epic Hindi language film Asoka, the last moments of Chandra Gupta Maurya as an emperor is portrayed. Also the sword of Chandra Gupta Maurya plays an important role in the film. The film opens with an old and tired Chandragupta Maurya giving away all his material possessions and taking the life of a jain saint. His favorite grandson, prince Asoka, claims his grandfather's sword. Chandra Gupta Maurya explains that the sword is in fact a demon that, whenever unsheathed, craves blood without regard to friend or foe. He throws away the sword but the young prince Asoka reclaims and unsheathes it whereupon it accidentally slashes his dear birds on a tree. At one point, Emperor Asoka mentions that he "want to be a greater emperor than Chandra Gupta Maurya". The film ends with Emperor Asoka throwing the sword at the sa ...

Some of the earliest ancient human civilisations in South Asia originated from areas encompassing present-day Pakistan. The earliest known inhabitants in the region were the Soanians, who settled in the Soan Valley of Punjab.[16] The Indus region, which covers most of Pakistan, was the site of several successive ancient cultures including the Neolithic Mehrgarh and the Bronze Age Indus Valley Civilisation (2800–1800 BCE) at Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro. The Vedic Civilization (1500–500 BCE), characterised by Indo-Aryan culture, laid the foundations of Hinduism, which would become well established in the region. Multan was an important Hindu pilgrimage centre. The Vedic civilisation flourished in the ancient Gandhāran city of Takṣaśilā, now Taxila in Punjab.

Beyond S & G Is our country so severely deficient in leadership that we cannot think beyond Sonia and Rahul? Or is the media so tunnel visioned that they cannot? Nobody is indispensable. India has survived after many greats, real ones, for millennium - after Ram Rajya, after Chandragupta Maurya and Ashoka, after the Guptas golden age, after Akbar, after Mahatma Gandhi and Nehru, and now Vajpayee. Why does the media keep throwing up pip-squeaks like Sonia and Rahul? Can't they see or think beyond the handful of diminishing relics both in the Government and the opposition? Is this way to lead public opinion?
