WinkHey from few days..I was thinking abt starting a new topic which is related to history...
And here I am... This is what I found out of my curiosity about Chandragupta Maurya...
Wink

What makes Chandragupta totally awesome is that he was totally paranoid out of his mind. He built a huge palace with hundreds of beds and he never slept in the same place twice. He had food testers taste everything he ate and he created the first ever secret police to defend him from assassination. The best part about it though is that he had an entourage of seven hundred female bodyguards that followed him everywhere he went. He said that he trusted females more to defend him and so he compiled his unit from the best Greek and Indian women he could find. That's just freaking awesome. 

Chandragupta turned over his empire to his son in 298 BC and went in the desert to become a Jain Monk, where he became so totally X-treme that he fasted himself to death.

well I believe that most of us know this... and the thing is that this was the idea of Chanakya!!!
Chandragupta Maurya is also listed in the top 10 list of World's Most Badass personalities ...by many historians
It is also said that many times he just stepped into Dhanananda's palace with a bare sword in his hand and obviously got caught and chanakya managed him to get out of prison...{as shown in the show}
So, guys any comments.?????Shocked
Criticism not allowed...
phir bhi criticise karna ho to send me a PM...
[just joking]
This is my first topic ...so plz give a positive response...
for those who don't know the meaning of badass...let me tell them badass meand an aggresive and rough guy...  OuchOuch

ThanX!! hmmm women guards, 100s of bed, food testers, secerete police defend himself for assassination...sounds interestng...but i wonder Sagars will never show CGM so much protective toward himself...which in my opinion is very realistic...
