Description
About the Book

Becoming an emperor is not easy especially when there are enemies every where and no one you can trust

India , third century BC. A land ruled by powerful dynasties, each fighting for supremacy over the other, unaware that a conqueror from Greece has arrived at the country’s doorstep in a bid to establish his dominion over the entire known world .

In the east, the Magadhan empire is ruled by the Nanadas , a clan driven by a limitless hunger for power and given to violence and abuse . from the embers of their lust and avarice a boy is born - a boy named Moriya , raised by a tribe of peacock - tamers and oblivious of the legacy that is rightfully his … until the day he is sought out by chanakaya , while a wily political strategist looking for vengeance against the ruthless rulers of Magadha . under the training and tutelage and of his shrewd adviser , the tentative young man , now christened Chandragupta , makes his way across the vast plains of bharatvarsha to meet the famed invader Alexander and build and army of his own. But being a warrior prince, he finds, comes at a heavy price - of trust and loyalty and perhaps even his life.

This is the story of a youth who must battle supreme odds - both within and without to fulfil destiny a s one of the greatest emperors the world has ever known . this is the story of Chandragupta Maura.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
