Chanakya: The Master of Statecraft

Sub title: Puffin Lives

Author: Deepa Agarwal

‘I, Chanakya, vow not to bind my hair until I have unseated you from the throne of Magadha.’
When the learned Brahmin, Vishnugupta, is humiliated by the arrogant king, Dhana Nanda, in a public gathering, he swears revenge. Anger is his weakness, but strategy, his strength. This formerly unknown Brahmin goes on to become the most well-known kingmaker in Indian history: Chanakya. Using a combination of cunning, ruthlessness and luck, Chanakya fulfils his vow and propels a boy of unknown origins, Chandragupta Maurya, to the throne of the most powerful kingdom of that time, an empire even Alexander the Great hesitated to confront.
This fascinating account shows how Chanakya went from being a penniless fugitive with the rebel prince of Pataliputra to the prime minister of Magadha, and finally the author of the groundbreaking Arthashastra. With fun snippets and lesser-known facts about Chanakya and the Mauryan age, this book promises to be an exciting and gripping adventure story.
