There was a time when I was facing many difficulties in life and was badly in need of correct and practical solutions. I tried different options, searched at many places, talked to all wise men but the solution eluded me. Then, one day I picked up Chanakya's Niti Shastra. I started reading the book with a hope, and was delighted to find that each of my problems was discussed and easy solutions were printed in it in bold letters.
At that time, I wrote two articles in Hindi "Chanakya Ki Drishti Mein Nari" and "Chanakya Ki Vyawaharikta". Six years after that incident, I was assigned to wrote this book Rule the World The way I did by Shri Ram Avtar Gupta. I got an opportunity to know that energetic man and his powerful mind better. The book in itself is an effort to explore the multifarious talents of Chanakya.
I sincerely hope that reading this book gives you both pleasure and wisdom.
Back of the Book
Chanakya has been called the Indian Machiavelli and to some extent the comparison is justified Bold and scheming, proud and revengeful availing himself of every device to delude and defeat the enemy, he sat with the reins of empire in his hands and looked upon the emperor as a loved pupil than as a master.
Chanakya is an unrivalled personality whose parallel cannot be found in history. Many people admire him for his wisdom and practical maxims, while many despise him for his unscrupulousness. Nonetheless, there is no one who is not awed by him. He was a shrewd politician, a master strategist, a crafty tactician, and an able administrator. He demolished a stale kingdom and an arrogant dynasty to establish a powerful and united kingdom.
This book is a peek into the life of this unmatched thinker. It also discusses his teachings and principles, which are still as contemporary and relevant to the modern times as they were myriads of years ago. Meant for all those who want to achieve an enviable position in life, the book will help you earn unprecedented power and success, and rule the world like Chanakya did.
