Chanakya Neeti 7: Don’t be too honest, straight trees are chopped down, twisted ones are spared.
Isn’t he right! His words are often harsh but nonetheless true, eye opener and humble reminder of the ways real world works, the funny part is little has changed since 300 BCE, human nature is more or less same, only these days people don’t use daggers to kill, they use slanders mostly. Had Christ taken birth in present day and felt a prime-minister/president afraid of losing to him in next election, he would have black-washed him I believe.
Chanakya was the mentor, guide and prime minister of Emperor Chandragupta Maurya. His words were very wise when it came to explaining human nature and ways of actual world.
As I am too engrossed with my twins (agnishatdalezine.wordpress.com and agnijaat.wordpress.com- check them out guys, my twin Ezines Agnishatdal and Agnijaat) I will use him as my own and your teacher for at least a couple of months. Hope you will benefit too!
