Oğullarım kesinlikle bu kitabı SEVDİ - o kadar çok ki bugün en az 6 kez okuduk. Kocam da okuduğunda daha komik olduğunu düşünüyorlar - kızların anlattığı hikayeler ve erkeklerin anlattığı hikayeler arasındaki farklar hakkında çok sevimli bir kitap.
I have a large collection of Amar Chitra Katha comics back in India. It was my father's way of teaching me about Indian culture and history. And I learnt more from these comics than from a lifetime of studing history. But of all the comics in the series, Chanakya deserves special mention because it tells the tale of an extraordinary man. In the years immediately after the death of Alexander the Great, the eastern part of his kingdom (which bordered India) was ruled by Seleucus. At the time the largest kingdom in India was that of Magadha and was ruled by an ineffectual king Nanda. The story follows the means and methods by which Chanakya goes about toppling Nanda's kingdom and establishing the Maurya dynasty under Chandragupta Maurya which in turn defeats and keeps the Seleucid empire from entering into India. Although essentially a children's book the story presents history as accurately as possible and shows how far Chanakya went to secure the empire like lacing Chandragupta's food with poison to make him immune to it. I recommend everyone read this book and indeed the rest of the ACK series to learn more about India.
