In the sprawling ancient city of Takshashila, where knowledge flowed like the gentlest of streams, the words of Chanakya’s profound wisdom echoed through the corridors of time. Within these venerable walls, scholars, philosophers, and seekers of wisdom gathered to quench their thirst for learning. It was amidst this vibrant blend of intellect that the fateful encounter between Chanakya and Chandragupta Maurya transpired, setting the stage for one of history’s most remarkable tales of mentorship.
Chanakya was a well-known teacher who taught at Takshashila University, an old Indian university that is currently located in Pakistan’s Rawalpindi region. Chanakya, also known as Vishnugupta or Kautilya, wrote the ancient Indian political theory Arthashastra. He is widely regarded as a forefather of Indian political science and economics.
