Seriously how is it that the world I would love to live in existed in the past?

Although history is full of places and events I’d love to be a fly on the wall to see, Ashoka’s Mauryan dynasty is one of the few ancient cultures in which I can see myself actually living; feeling safe, respected and comfortable.

The British author H.G. Wells wrote in his book The Outline of History, “Amidst the tens of thousands of names of monarchs that crowd the columns of history … the name of Ashoka shines, and shines, almost alone, a star.”

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
