Born in 300 BCE, the birth place still not perfectly known. Though it is considered as Kusumpura near Patlipura (present day Patna), but according to Buddhist texts, his birth place was Taxila.

When Chanakya was born he had a full set of teeth, according to Monks, it was a sign that he would become a king or an emperor.

But since he was born in a Brahmin family, it was considered inappropriate.

Thus, his teeth were broken and it was predicted that he would make another person a king and rule through him. Even as a child, Chanakya had the qualities of a born leader.

He knew how to put his own people in the opposite camp and spy the enemy without his knowledge before destroying him forever.

Chanakya was an ace in turning tables in his favor irrespective of the circumstances. He never budged to pressure tactics by the ruthless politicians.

There were grave designs threatening the unity and integrity of the nation. Chanakya was aware of the internal and external threats of the country.

In Patliputra, since Chankya was a great scholar, he was included in the trust committee which was administering the gifts and charities of Dhanananda, the ruler of Patliputra.

When Chanakya met the king for the first time, he was disgusted at the ugly appearance of Chanakya. As time passed he developed contempt for Chanakya.

The king did not like the way Chanakya behaved with him. The king removed Chanakya from the post of president without any reasons. Chanakya erroded like a volcano and said that he would dethrone the king.
