After hearing a woeful story of Chandragupta and getting emotionally charged, he vowed to destroy the Nandas and get Chandragupta his rightful place as a king of Patliputra. Chanakya said "I will get you the kingship, Chandragupta.

From that day on Chanakya and Chandragupta worked in tandem to destroy the corrupt and unscrupulous rule of the Nandas.

Chanakya used to add poison in little amounts daily in Chandragupta's food in order to make him immune to poison.

Though the story is a revengeful tale, but Chanakya’s aim was not only getting revenge but also a smooth running administration and happiness of people.

There are yet another versions of the story to be read and yet many criticism to be faced. But India will never have a strategist and economist as he was.

There are two books attributed to Chanakya namely Arthashastra and Chanakya Niti, also known as Chanakya Niti-shashtra. In that era, teacher were called as Acharya.

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. His level of knowledge was beyond children of his age.

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.
