Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them.

Indian: The Great Diplomat Chanakya

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 3:52 AM


India: Great Diplomat

Born-Died: Around 300 B.C. 

Chanakya is famous in the history of India as a sage-like person who by his political shrewdness and expediency helped in the establishment of the mighty Mauryan empire. Chanakya was wise, clever, fore-sighted, determined and deeply read in economics, diplomacy and politics. There is a legend that Chanakya was once invited to the court of the Nanda rulers of Magadha where he was insulted. Chanakya took a vow to cause the downfall of the Nanda dynasty. With the help of a brave and capable general, Chandragupta, he succeeded in fulfilling his vow and founded a new Mauryan dynasty in Magadha. He expelled the Greek invaders from India with his help again. Chanakya served as a friend, philosopher and guide to Chandragupta Maurya. Chanakya is also believed to be the author of Arthshastra, the classical Indian treatise on statecraft. It lays down rules of government and also gives a detailed account of the contemporary state administration.

Chanakya was born in a poor Brahmin family of Taxila. His real name was Vishnugupta. Chanakya is also known as Kautilya because of his `Kut-Niti' or diplomacy. He was educated at Taxila, a great educational centre in those times. In his personal life, Chanakya was like an ascetic and the legend goes that he lived in a mud-hut near the royal palace. A very famous Sanskrit play, Mudrarakshasa, has for its theme one of the diplomatic feats of Chanakya.

Most of the foreign diplomatic enclaves in New Delhi are situated in an area named after him known as Chanakyapuri.
