Chanakya’s Chant (Hindi) covers not only the life of Chanakya, one of the greatest political strategists in Indian history, but also that of his reincarnation, Gangasagar Mishra. Gangasagar, who lives in a lesser known small town, is in the eyes of the world an ordinary teacher, a Brahmin who lives hand to mouth. However, this is not the truth about the man, who is the reincarnation of the greatest minister to one of the most powerful rulers in the Indian subcontinent, Chanakya. The book is unique in the sense that the stories of the lives of both the protagonists run parallel and are linked by the common thread of their intellect.

First, the book depicts a story set in 340 BC, when a Brahmin, in order to avenge his father’s death, plans to overthrow the ruler of his state. For this, he mentors and grooms Chandragupta Maurya, the first ruler of the Maurya dynasty. The book also tells the story of the anonymous Indian Brahmin man who grooms and trains an ambitious girl from Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh, to become the future Prime Minister of this country. It is for all to see if Gangasagar is successful in transforming an ordinary girl into the most important woman in the country.

Chanakya’s Chant (Hindi) shows not only the achievements of the great strategist but also his human flaws. He is considered to be a cold, calculating and manipulative mentor.
