About the Book Unparalleled Diplomat Chanakya The further we know, the further we learn, the further we say, about Chanakya is nothing further than a drop of water taken out of the vast ocean. It also can't be denied that everything can't be said about him with a full note of authenticity. Several sources are there which throw light upon Chanakyas being contradicting to each other; while one legend says that he was a Kerala Brahmin, other contend that he was from north and was educated at Takshila University. He was a man with proficiency in three vedas skill in sleight, dexterity in conspiracy and policy and is said to have known for his physical ugliness; disgusting complexion and disfigurement of legs. It's believed that his parents noticed that Chanakya was born with full set of tooth, considered as a mark of unborn king since his parents didn't want him to be the king. Hence, his teeth were removed making him look unpretty. But rather he came a kingmaker. He was a follower of Jain religion, he'd studied all the branches of knowledge and came an expert. He was married to a girl of Brahminical family named Yashomati when he came off age. It's believed, if appertained to Jain textbooks, that he was an necessary in the downfall of Nanda Dynasty and established a potent Maurya Dynasty by installing Chandragupta Maurya to the throne. In the final stage of his life, he's said to have come a Jain Muni and is told to have ended his life by letting sacred fire to consume him.
