A comparison can be made on the ideas of Kautalya, Ashoka, and Confucius to help understand this region’s past and present governing beliefs. During the early periods of Indian history the prime minister of Chandragupta Maurya, Kautalya, created the Mauryan Dynasty by facing Alexander the Great from Greece and conquering large areas of northern India. In this newly acquired state he instilled strict ideas of how the land and its people should be governed.
