Ashoka & Bihar: Part III

Ashoka & Bihar: Part III

This blog is to introspect as to why Ashoka turned back from power to peace.

Ashoka defeated all of India and Kalinga too and brought them into his realm. But after the War of Kalinga, he thought he had conquered Kalinga and their people, and the whole of South of India too. However the people of Kalinga accepted to die rather than accept his pride. This left him hurt in his ego and pride, wondering what is life?

As he was all surrounded by greedy generals, senators, soldiers, he had nowhere to hide. The wife gave him a remedy, do as I say, relinquish all power and turn into a hermit preaching peace. Follow the path of peace and you would be free of your bad past.

So Ashoka turned into a puppet of his wife, preaching peace all over. At the end of his life, he gained his pride again (but lost his love : wife)

What would you have done? Go the Ashoka way or be with you Love swallowing the stab to your pride?

Caution: This might be all theory
