Poros as a PUNJABI is my real hero and the Real Icon of Punjabiyat , I wish Punjabis come out of these twisted narratives , ..
eagerly waiting for the second part , and hope you will tell more about Poros and how he ordered the painting or Murals to keep the truth alive ..> and the Man who stood tall in in defending his Motherland also stood tall in front of history

...by the keep an eye of the Jhandey wali sarkar ..... actually of the trenches ..... and i remember ....something interesting as well...
Mulllah Naseer ud din 's donkey died ....he then dug up his grave , burried him and then started weeping because his Donkey was his age old all weathers friend and comapnion.... as soon the villagers saw a honorable looking man with a Mullah beard crying in front of a Grave ...they decided that the grave must of some High profile Saint ... and in spite of MULLAH sahib telling them that its just a grave of a donkey .. they probably made some .. " khootey wali sarkar " .... perhaps...

To whom do you give your Empire. Alexander (on a death bed); To the strongest.

To the strongest indeed, Sanee. Because that started the War of Succession to last ten years in which the generals fought for the distinction of the strongest and ended up breaking A's empire to bits.

Afat, we are given to worshiping pygmies. the old fool A. H. Dani built a half-finished monument to A near Jalalpur. Not to Raja Paurava. As you note the Punjabi king was a 'Man who stood tall in in defending his Motherland also stood tall in front of history'. But we only worship pygmies.

I will wait for the part 2 , and will love if you narrate how Poros ordered the drawing of a Mural at Taxila to show exact war conditions , for he did not wanted to deceive his future generations

In this we won't be talking about the murals. There was too much about Taxila.
