Great series that I am following since Episode 1. BTW, the van doesn't go with the setting of the documentary and with what Alexander did in Taxila. And your shirt is best this time :).

I am in tears, how great those Dandamis and other philosopher were. There was no theft and no enmity in Taxshila..

Thank you, Santosh. I wept the first time read of Mandanis (Dandamis). Many times walking around the ruins of the three cities of Taxila or the monasteries, I get teary-eyed. What great people we were, how we valued knowledge and learning, how upright and truthful we were. And then we converted!
