VIKRAMDITYA

An Ideal Ruler

Vikramaditya means the Sun of Valour, that is, one who is powerful as the Sun. Vikramaditya was indeed powerful; and he brought the light of security and peace too.

The people enjoyed peace and prosperity under this valiant king, who loved his subjects. The capital Kalyana was rich and prosperous; splendid palaces and beautiful temples and grand trunk roads made it a magnificent city Vikramaditya became a model for the rulers of all countries and ages. He showed how powerful a king should be and how the king should use his power for the welfare of the people. He showed that the hand that holds the sword should also offer justice and protect the good. Herespected all faiths equally. He encouraged poets and artists. He gave all facilities for the education of women. So he ruled for about fifty years in power and wisdom, and won for himself a highly honored place in the history of India. Who if not so wise and great a ruler can inaugurate a new era?
