Battle won with his wits...

Battle won with his wits...

Today we are going to discuss about few refections and revelations of the pivotal historical figure,  Acharya Chanakya; other names he is popularly known as are kautilya and Vishnugupt. He derived his name from his father "Chanak". Demigod of intellect, many dynasties have been established on the dexterous application of his quick wits. Acharya Chandragupt was also an esteemed professor in the famous  Nalanda University. 

Battle won with his wits...

Those days Chanakya dreamt of undivided unpartitioned India. On the face of the warrior "Sikandar's" conquest for our golden country, Chanakya had to intervene as a  shield. To realize his vision, he kept visiting rulers from various parts of India. The king of the biggest kingdom "Magadh" under the "Nanda" dynasty was the king "Dhananand". One day Chanakya went about to pay a visit to him and shared his insights about the county's future. But Dhananand was a corrupt tyrant king who drove Chanakya away with scorn and humiliation.

Chanakya gulped down his insult with a vow. He contemplated to uproot his dynasty from the face of India and replace him with a true ruler. Such was his determination that Chanakya focussed all his concentration onto forming and cultivating a small boy named Chandu. In history books he was posthumously popularised as "Chandragupt Mourya". Chanakya gave Chandragupt the prime lessons of his life, wherein he was advised to befriend his enemies. 

Chandragupt strategically became a part of Sikandar's army and gradually with his efficiency and adroitness started extracting valuable battle blueprints. Chanakya had understood that coming from a far away land, the huge battalion was physically tired. A tired body yields to a tired brain. He craftily started manipulating the minds of the soldiers. He spread the rumor that "God and Goddesses" of the land were heavily annoyed with the full strength of the battalion. Amidst a planned and well plotted maze of mental game, the soldiers would get confused and fight among themselves. Chanakya's planted traps successfully drove Sikandar away from India. This incident gave Chanakya huge confidence and simmering in revenge, with a small army he broke a war on Dhananand. But his haste landed him in troubled waters when his army came back lost and defeated. 

He subsequently made seven strategies to realize his goals. 

1) A sudden barge in to any kingdom exposes the army to the risk of losing. Chanakya designed his art of war in gradual invasion from the territorial borders.

2) In his second strategy, Chanakya made a troop of "Vish kanya"-the poisoned beauties. Small quantities of poison intake on a regular basis made these ladies the beholder of the same. In their rueful small attacks, these ladies would entice the kings from the small allied pocket territories with their beauty and implant their venomous bites on opportune moments in so killing them. 

3) Anger destroys one's analytical power. Chanakya calm headedly executed his framed strategies. He had deputed trained spies to empower himself with maximum information about his enemies. 

4) Chanakya was aware of the religious vulnerability of people. Taking that to his advantage he took the disguise of a monk in raisingup  his great powerful army. His religious persuasions and constant motivation to serve God gave him a determined never yielding swarm of devoted men. 

5) Chanakya enriched his army with proper dedicated training. He knew that their expertise would lay the  foundation of his victory. 

6) In his 6th strategy, Chanakya planted and tested his pilot troops in executing small attacks here and there. Their high voltage electrifying performance sealed his guaranteed victory.

7) He weaved about the international alliances in masterminding his triumphant success. He manipulated and convinced the foreign collaborators in joining hands with him. 

Crafting these 7 strategies most delicately and successfully implementing the same against Dhanand, he uprooted the existence of the "Nanda" dynasty for an undivided India.

He cheated on death

Have you ever heard of anyone escaping the ghastly clutches of death sentence consecutively thrice? Yes friends! today we would discuss about a strange incident capsulising a thunder shocking event.  A person who is given death sentence is believed to be going through extreme agonizing mental torment as its time inches closer. But when law also fails to kill a person what would anyone have to say on that?  John Lee is a man who had a tough fist fight with his cessation. In early England, the government adopted various ways as capital punishment for the convicts. These punishments ranged from  chopping off the body parts to burning them alive. But gradually the legal hands became softer on the defendants and the penalties margined closer to humanity.  In the year 1874, a new way of punishment was designed wherein the convict will be hung by his neck till his death. The joint connecting the neck to the spinal chord will be snapped off giving space to a steady death. The prospect of s

The REAL story of a TRUEsoldier- MAA TUJHE SALAAM (With voice narration)

My pride knows no limit and my fortune is unbound being someone who has had the privilege of getting the pious blessings of God himself through his child who has descended on Earth as a savior sucking all the "Vish" (poison) for himself and cleansing the sins of people with his own blood. The Presiden's award, numerous prestigious titles to his names and even profound recognition have failed to sweep him off his strongly grounded self. Today I would like to milk this opportunity and honor to unfold a glimpse of a true soldier's spirit. A happy jubilant night turned into a complete nightmare leaving a lasting catastrophic impact on the country. The jawaans (around 23 in all) were in their own euphoric comradeship, when the things beyond everyone's wildest figment of imagination rolled out. A heart wrenching blast and the next moment there were ripped off bodies of our soldiers lying all around. All happening in a lightening fast speed, it took Mahadev to process th
