An introduction to the story of a true statesman who not only had an extraordinary vision but also the brilliance to execute it – Chanakya. Chanakya is an enigmatic figure from ancient India. There is no complete information relating to his life, which leaves enough room for children to conduct their own research and present their varied perspectives & thoughts in a safe and receptive environment.
