The great scholar Chanakya learned and memorised the Vedas in his youth. As he grew up, he studied politics and became a master political strategist. Chanakya assisted the first Mauryan emperor Chandragupta in his rise to power.
Chanakya is credited for having played an important role in the establishment of the Maurya Empire. Chanakya served as the chief advisor to both emperors Chandragupta and his son Bindusara.
Today Amit Shah is considered the Chanakya – the power behind Indian Prime Minister Modi.
Amit Shah is said to follow the words of Chanakya who emphasised victory by any means.
Chanakya preached that ends justify the means. So, any means used to achieve the desired end of wealth and power is right.
So they say Amit Shah follows Chanakya’s philosophy which in turn has given the BJP victory after victory and using any and every means to achieve those victories.
Amit Shah now targets Kashmir – so Indian-occupied Kashmir remains locked down a day after it was stripped of a status that gave it autonomy from the rest of India. No one knows whats going to happen – apart from Amit Shah and Modi – or do they?
Modi egged on by Shah targeted Pakistan in an airstrike in the early morning hours of February 26 when Indian warplanes crossed the de facto border in the disputed region of Kashmir, and dropped bombs in the vicinity of the town of Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan. In that case it was considered a military and political disaster by everyone – except by India.
Now we look at these quotes from Chanakya:
1: There is some self-interest behind every friendship. There is no friendship without self-interest. This is a bitter truth.
- Amit Shah changes friends if it suits the interest of the party. He has no issues having alliance with PDP or JD(U), which the BJP criticised all the time.
2: Learn from other men’s mistakes. You do not have to touch the fire to see how hot it is.
- Amit Shah has learned valuable lessons from the Congress Party. Then used them after the BJP came to power to hold on to power.
3: A person should not be too honest. Straight trees are cut first and honest people are screwed first.
- Amit Shah certainly does not mix honesty with politics or religion.
To defeat extremism – including religious and political extremists like the BJP we must study Chanakya Niti.
The problem is we are all too nice and too good – for our own good. People like Amit Shah, Modi and others around the world hunger for power and wealth – will trample over and screw you if given the chance.
Many of us disengage from politics and refuse to study such political leaders because we simply feel – dirty. But that doesn’t mean these leaders will leave you alone. Either you understand the dirt and the dirty or you get your clean selves used as wet wipes by them and flushed down the loo.
I am not asking for people to screw back or to be dirty – rather just be aware of what really is happening as politicians and religious groups manipulate your emotions for their own ends.
This is a game of Amit Shah and Amit Shah is certainly NO Chanakya – he needs to understand the words of the great Chanakya more deeply – especially this one:
As a single withered tree, if set aflame, causes a whole forest to burn, so does a rascal son destroy a whole family.
