The Great King Ashoka

Ashoka was one of the great Kings in the Indian History. He was ruling people for nearly 40 years. He was perhaps, the one emperor, who could rule India, as a whole. His adherence to the principles of truth, non-violence, and welfare of common man, still stands as a guiding principle to us. Ashoka, undoubtedly, was the one ideal monarch who ruled the beautiful country. Ashoka was praised highly by Pandit Nehru for his benevolent rule of the country. It was he who established veterinary hospitals for the cattle and other animals. Ashoka was known as Priyadarsana (very handsome to look). He was also called Devanam Priyaha or the beloved of Gods.
