Stories of Wisdom for Dreamers and Thinkers. Raja or Rishi? King or Kingmaker? Man or Mystic?. Emperor Chandragupta's beloved teacher, Chanakya had a life that was as fraught with mystery as it was replete with wisdom. His words and actions were meticulously engineered and executed. Chanakya taught the important lessons in life by example and that is exactly what veteran author Radhakrishnan Pillai does through this wonderful book. Katha Chanakya narrates tales from the great Acharya’s life, and puts into modern context the policies and practices of India’s most strategic dreamer and thinker. Some of these stories are real and some fictional. But all are focused on the welfare of the people, be it the dilemma of choosing a new leader, rooting out corruption or defeating a great enemy. If you have a vision, if you have a dream, Katha Chanakya will help you make it a reality.
