Chanakya (Paperback) Price: Rs. 25

Chanakya is a novel that presents the story of the great strategist Chanakya who lived in India approximately 2400 years ago. It was his revolutionary nature and forward thinking that led to the formation of an integrated India from a country that saw years of unrest and turmoil.

Summary of The Book

Author B. D. Kher delves deep into the archives to present the story of the man who was known for his great thinking and his knowledge regarding political science and economics. Very little is available in terms of accurate information about Chanakya. Most of the information about him has come from accounts that are semi-legendary in nature.

The origins of Chanakya’s birthplace remain dubious and there are multiple theories regarding this. While Buddhist texts state Taxila in modern-day Pakistan as his birthplace, Jain scriptures state he was a South Indian native. Chanakya’s early life and education happened in Takshashila, a center for learning in the ancient period, where he grew up to be a teacher as well. Chanakya’s life was connected mainly to the cities of Takshashila and Pataliputra, or present-day Patna.

Chanakya faces great humiliation in the court of the Nanda king, and vows to bring about the downfall of the Nanda empire. Chanakya and Chandragupta’s pact with Parvataka brings about the Nanda collapse. The Nanda territories are divided amongst Chandragupta and Parvataka. Parvataka’s son, Malayketu, after his father’s death, seeks control of all the former territories held by the Nanda empire. He is aided by his minister Rakshasa, who was also a minister in the Nanda courts. Chanakya, after thwarting several Rakshasa attempts of killing Chandragupta, hatches a strategy which sets Malayketu and Rakshasa at conflict and ends Malayketu’s quest of gaining control over the territories.

Chanakya highlights the nature, foresight and insight of the great Chanakya, who brought stability to a country that had not seen peace due to so many years of infighting before.

First to review

न वाचलेलं उत्तम

चाणक्याविषयी आज फारच त्रोटक माहिती उपलब्ध आहे. त्यामुळे सर्वच लेखकांना तर्काचा आधार घेऊन तत्कालीन परिस्थितीची कल्पना करावी लागते. परंतु, सदर लेखक भा. द. खेर यांनी नेमकं तर्काला फाटा देऊन केवळ कल्पनेच्या भराऱ्या मारून हे पुस्तक लिहिलं आहे असं वाटते.
उदाहरणार्थ, लेखकाने गंगेकिनारी भीषण सुक्या दुष्काळाचे वर्णन केले आहे. प्रत्यक्षात गंगेकाठी महापुराचे वर्णन समजू शकतो, पण सुका दुष्काळ केवळ अशक्य. आणि मजेची गोष्ट तर ही की काही पानांनंतर त्याच महाभीषण सुक्या दुष्काळात मृत्यू पावलेल्या आपल्या आईची उत्तरक्रिया गंगेच्या पवित्र वाहत्या पाण्यात करताना चाणक्याचे वर्णन केले आहे.
दुसरे उदाहरण द्यायचे तर लेखक
