    Chankya was one of the pioneer of Psychological warfare. He employed spies from all professions of society, these spies used to disseminate false information and exaggerated strength of Indian kings thus reducing the Morale of Alexander troops.


    Its well known fact that Alexander troops knew the strength of Nanda empire that's why they abandoned the plan to invade India further.

    Alexander’s invasion of India is regarded as a huge Western victory against the disorganized East. But according to Marshal Gregory Zhukov, the largely Macedonian army suffered a fate worse than Napoleon in Russia.

    Typical western propaganda. Same old story despite being outnumbered, west won because of their superior training, discipline and strategy and Indians were bunch of untrained horde.
    On the side note Porus who was a war-lord was fool not having Alexander killed when he has chance beacuse of a stupid promise he made to Roxana.

    Alexander could never enter Bharat. He was beaten at the out post and his army abandoned him and he ran back injured. On his way back, he died. Dhanand was the emperor of Bharat at that time and had a really strong and technologically advance army. Chandrgupt Maurya under the guidance of Chanakaya, had beaten the Nand family and took charge right after this incidence. The general of Alexander, whose name was Saliukis, took charge of the Alexander's empie after his death. Saliukis's daughter was married to Chandra Gupt maurya as a friendly gesture. Technology in that period was so advance that Chinese traveler Heun Sang came to visit Bharat to meet Chandra Gupt Maurya and Chanakaya. He mentions in his book that when he met Chandra Gupt Maurya, the servants who served food were Loh Manavas(Robots). Chandra Gupt Maurya's grandson, Ashoka the Great killed over 100K enemy soldiers in a span of few days in the war of Kalinga after which he adapted Buddhism and decided to wrap up all the major science projects and contained them in 9 books and handed over to 9 loyals to keep it safe. Those 9 are called 9 Unknowns. The temples, forts and all the wonders our ancestors created were not possible without advanced technology. We carved mountains into temples and forts which is not even possible by today's technology. The history we are taught comes from Nehru's discovery of India, which is a lame book and its a British propaganda just to hide the sh1t they did in India during their rule. More Indians were killed by British than the Jews killed by Nazis. They are trying to keep the world distracted but for how long. Our history which was called mythical, has been proven true. Vedas are not mythical. All the advanced coastal cities found underwater on the coast of Gujrat and South India are not mythical. Don't worry about this western bullsh1t. Soon they will find out that their only prophet was taught by Indians during his over a decade disappearance and his grave along with his mother is in India too.

    Do not wish to contradict you but Indian references including Mudra Rakshash drama written some two hundred years later did not give Alexander an out right victory but a truce in which Porus got to rule His adversary Ambhis kingdom and Alexander marched to River Beas with Porus then only turned back.

    The Russian version of events of the battle with Porus is closest to the truth. Greek historians were liars. In the final events of battle, Alexander had surrounded Porus and his last 10,000 men but could not achieve a breakthrough like in Persia. He sent messengers to Porus fo surrender, but Porus refused. Porus said that if you kill my 10,000 battle hardened men you will loose your own 10,000 Greeks and in the battle and after that you may never be able to replenish these Greeks. All those victories in Persia will come to a naught as other soldiers mostly Persians in the army will desert. Alexander understood that and used Porus's Guru to do the final negotiations which came out that Porus gets Ambhis kingdom and Alexander marches further to River Beas. This version of battle in Greek literature does not exist as the Greeks were sending back highly untruthful account of the battle at Jhelum river.

    @Bornubus would it be right to say that India at it's prime had Afghanistan, Tibet and Tribal north east as a buffer regions?

    The land which was in East Pakistan for 3 days
    Afghanistan is't buffer , it was India...The kingdom like Kabul ,Zubal ,kapisa ..all these are India.

    All the hindukush(parijat) mountain and land east and south of it is India . So by modern geographical standard half of the Afghanistan is India.
    Buffer of india in west was Sakastan( now western afghanistan, sistan wetlands ) and in north-west ,Bactria( Ancient kamboja ,valley of Oxus ,north of hindukush)

    Tibet is a "Buffer Country" which in it's might capture Leh and Assam too
    And NE tribal states are truly buffer between 2 strong country ,named India/Indian state and Chinese empire-sichuan)
