GLIMPSES FROM LIFE & TIMES OF BABA BAKHORAN DASS

  • BABA BAKHORANA DASS – A CHANAKYA OR A PANCHALI OF PATALIPUTRA?

====

Long ago, a hunted, haunted (Brahman by birth and brain) youth of Magadh vows revenge for the gruesome murder of his father, Cold, calculative, cruel with complete absence of accepted standards of morality (?), he succeds in dethroning the most powerfulEmperor of the day and rises to the most powerful political strategist in Aryavarta and succeeds in uniting a ragged country against the invasion of the army of that demigod, ALEXANDER THE GREAT. Pitting the weak edges of both forces against each other, he pulls of a wicked and astonishing victory and succeeds in installing Chandragupta on the throne of the mighty Mauryan empire.

Mera Bharat Mahaan happens to be just as riven as ancient Aryavarta by class hatred, corruption and divisive politics – and this landscape may create an atmosphere for BBD’s feasting ground. Can this wily pandit who preys on greed, venality bring about any miracle?

KOI SHAQUE (any doubt) ? May be! As BBD is confused, whether he is Panchaali or Chanakya? Please Help
