This morning Baba Bakhoran Dass (BBD) is remembering one of the decorated ruler of Magadh (roots of BBD). His name was Mahapadma Nand. It was spread from present Nepal to present Gujrat (no documentary evidence to prove). As he did not belong to a ruler caste – there certain issues faced by him. Although he was a mighty ruler but most unpopular and Kautilya become a catalyst to dethrone him by Chandragupta Maurya. This was old history of ancient Bharat and Magadh. History is once again repeating with some change – business as usual. This time role of Kautilya was played by aam aadmi, LARA played the role of Mahapadma Nand, and Chandragupta Maurya (Sushashaan bhaiya) was installed. But now Chandragupta Maurya has become a friend of Mahapadma Nand. Whether the modern History needs Kautilya or the aam aadmi of Magadh will be a mute spectator waiting for BUDDHA to reincarnate?
