Chanakya was born in Magadha (ruled by the Nandas) as the son of acharya Chanak. At an early age, he began the study of the Vedas, then considered the toughest scriptures to study and memorise.

He was a diligent student and loved to study political science, especially the role of the king and the ways of effective administration. After his father was accused as a traitor and killed in prison, Chanakya left Magadha vowing never to come back. He later came back to ask the Nandas for help against the Greek invasion only to be humiliated and sent back. Chanakya then vowed to cause the downfall of the Magadha empire. He was responsible not only for helping Chandragupta Maurya ascend the throne but also for uniting the Indian states for fighting against the attack by Alexander the Great around 327 BC. His main philosophy was “A debt should be paid off till the last penny; An enemy should be destroyed without a trace”. He seemed to have lived to his philosophy.

Chanakya (c.350 – c.275 BC), also known as Kautilya or Vishnugupta, was a professor of political science at the Takshasila University. He is regarded as one of the earliest known political thinkers, economists and king-makers. In Jawaharlal Nehru’s Discovery Of India, Chanakya was called the Indian Machiavelli.
