By then, significant events in
the history of Bharat were taking place under the very eyes of Chanakya and Chandragupta.
A young prince came from Greece with a big army. He had already conquered many realms.
He was Alexander.
Even as Chanakya and Chandragupta were looking on, the soil of Bharat was going under
foreign yoke. The people of Bharat did fight bravely. It looks as if even women took part
in the fight. But not being united, they were defeated.
In Chanakya's eyes, foreign rule was poison. It was his belief that alien rulers would
exploit, loot and impoverishes the country.
It is said that Chandragupta metAlexander. As he talked boldly and defiantlyAlexander
was enraged and ordered his arrest. But Chandragupta somehow escaped.
Chandragupta's education was over, and Chanakya thought that their first task should,
be to drive out the Greeks.
