Chanakya was the mentor, guide and prime minister of Emperor Chandragupta Maurya. His words were very wise when it came to explaining human nature and ways of actual world.
That was one side of this man. The other side was a man full of determination, impossible determination. Otherwise, one Brahmin could never overthrow a dynasty with the help of a mercenary. Yes, as per history Chanakya was a very poor Brahmin, his disciple Chandragupta Maurya was illegitimate child of Magadh’s emperor, a mercenary. They met by chance and Chanakya saw the warrior who will overthrow the tyrants, and mentored him to the level that he was the forefather of one of the greatest dynasties of ancient India.
