    “Peoples happiness should be King’s happiness Welfare of people is King’s welfare For a king there is no task which is only individualistic and pleasurable to him only It is king’s utmost duty to look after progress and welfare of people of his country”Kautilya also known as Chanakya aka Vishnugupt c 350 275 BCE was an Indian statesman and philosopher chief advisor and Prime Minister of the Indian Emperor Chandragupta the first ruler of the Mauryan Empire Kautilya belonged to the Brahmin caste the priestly class he was originally from Northern India and a professor of political science and economics at the University of Taxila He was fully knowledgeable concerning the Vedas literature and it is also believed that he might have had some knowledge of Zoroastrianism He mentored Chandra Gupta Maura a Shudra Low caste person to become king With Chandra Gupta he repelled the invasion of Greeks and also dethroned DhananandThis is the English translation of his Chankya Neeti First the shloka is given in Sanskrit then it is written in roman and finally the English translation is given Some explanation is also given in brackets if reuired The shlokas given here are for practical use in statecraft These are not theoretical This is proven by the historical facts that how he defeated the mighty Nandas Some examples are reproduced below1 Without good assistance a king can take no right decisions2 Courage alone is not enough to achieve success in one’s mission3 An irritable or foul tempered cow is better than having thousand dogs 4 One’s wisdom fails at the onset of the evil daysAlthough the teachings are excellent some have become outdated Some of these are anti Dalit and sexist in today’s context Some of those may be correct when written but lost relevance in today’s age Some examples1 A woman by nature is liar courageous deceitful foolish greedy impious and cruel These are innate attributes of a woman 2 Women have a knack of talking to one man casting an askew glance at other and loving secretly a third man They can’t devotedly love just one man3 The power of Brahmans is knowledge of the king his army of the trader class their wealth and of the menial class their service ability Chankya asserts ManuSo this Neeti is mixed bag in present context It should not be followed verbatim and in toto but in small doses We should use our wisdom and use it as per the changed times wherever reuired There are many printing mistakes and at some places there are boxes instead of words A better proof reading was reuired Translation could have been better45 stars

    OK readI consider it to be an ok read Wisdom wise it has some things you can adopt in your life While reading always be cautious that shlokas have been written in a particular time and age This means they are not completely true for modern age Specially things on women From modern standards they are downright offensive But read with open mind and rather than taking things literally take them scientifically analyze them and be aware of context Plus I felt it would be better if somethings were direct literal translation and open for reader's interpretation rather there is a lot of writer's own interpretation Also a lot of typos

    Well Holding this book in my hand i remembered the television show of chanakya and the cover of the book resembled exactly the same The cover is catchy and bright The philosophy lovers will anyway grab the bookThe blurb is short crisp and clear cut on what the book is basedThe book is written in simple language The sholkas are translated to english and explained them wisely Sometimes awestruck with the theme of understanding in depth Since philosophy is my thing i could relate few or things deeplyThe life seems so hard unsatisfying difficult to deal with but you always have easy options to deal withThe book also took me to school days where we had chapters lessons and morals about the king kingdom ministers wise people foolish ones and smart advisor tooThe book is pretty simple yet you will have to have time in understanding the same in depth to understand the sameI would rate 45

    Chanakya neeti is a collection of aphorisms dealing with various practical aspects of life Chanakya aka Kautilya was not only a thinker but also one of the best philosophers the world can ever witness This book contains selected gems from different shastras This book contains the english translations of the original chanakya neeti The cover of the book is simple yet catchy The title of the book is very apt The blurb is short and crisp and gives readers an insight to the different themes discussed in the book like ethics morality including some general observationsThe best part about the book it that it has explained various aspects of life in the simplest possible manner All the sholks are first written in sanskrit and then in english The translation of each slok is very properly defined in lucid languageThough most of the shloks still find relevance in the mordern world it cannot be said that it is completely relevant today as it was at the time it was written There were few things which i found outdated as per today's culture and norms Also there were few complex shloks whose translation was not satisfactory A better and in depth explaination was reuired at some placesOverall a good read to understand and follow our rootsRating 45
