Chaanakya TV Serial
Phillipus said - "We had seen the power only of Raaj Sattaa and weapons. We never knew that there was any other power too which could be more powerful than these, but this Aachaarya and Shishya (teacher and student) power is greater than them.
[Shaahjahaan also thought this, that is why when Aurangzeb put him in jail, and asked him what do you want to eat, you will get only one grain, and what would you like to do?" He said - "I want to eat Chanaa (black Gram) to eat and a few children to teach." Aurangzeb whispered - "You are lying in jail, but your royal feeling has not gone yet."]
All Aachaarya were going from Paataliputra to Kaashee leaving Magadh, because they were not satisfied there. Aachaarya Rudra Dev also wanted to go to Kaashee, but he was not getting permission to leave Magadh.
At the same time Chaanakya came from Takshshilaa to Magadh. In fact Chaanakya got a great success in the Gurukul of Takshshilaa so he thought to implement this type of scheme in Paataliputra also. And when he came there he saw this exodus. This exodus was not in his favor, so he tried to stop this. Magadh Government could not understand him so they appointed a spy after him. When he found Aachaarya Rudra Dev leaving Magadh, he requested him not to leave Magadh like that - running away from his duties. Vararuchi was the Chief Minister at that time (before him the Prime Minister was Shaktaar).
There was a childhood friend of Chaanakya, named Ajaya. When Chaanakya came to Magadh, he met him and stayed with him. Ajaya's wife was Maitree. When Chaanakya met Shriyak, his another childhood friend and the elder son of Shaktaar, Shriyak told his story to Chaanakya - "Shaktaar was imprisoned but later he was released. After that he left politics and we came to our house. My father again started teaching for his livelihood. We continued to wait for you. He was alive only to see you. Although father did not want, but still I became Prime Minister. My younger brother joined Sanyaas."
Shriyak told Mahaa Mantree Vararuchi that Chaanakya wanted to establish a Gurukul like Takshshilaa. Vararuchi liked the idea. He got ready to meet Chaanakya. But when Dhanaanand heard this he wanted to know everything about Chaanakya as who was he, from where he had come, what was his purpose, etc etc. He came to know that Chaanakya was the son of a rebellion Aachaarya Chanak to whom he exiled some 20 years ago. he thought that why the son of an exiled Aachaarya has come now? What does he want? He did not like the idea of his coming in his kingdom and he ordered his people to throw him out of his kingdom too. He forced his Prime Minister Vararuch too to resign from his position, because the King was not in favor of establishing the Gurukul. Dhanaanand scolded his Army Chief Bhadrashaal that why did he support the Prime Minister to establish the Gurukul.
[Kaamboj horses were considered the best in Chandragupt's time also as they were considered in MBH times.]
Dhanaanand's Prime Minister Kaatyaayan was known as Amaatya Raakshas because of his strict and cruel behavior.
