Kautilya (Chanakya) was blessed with great intelligence and wisdom. He used both these attributes to the hilt in his practice of statecraft.

Two of the most relevant Bihari politicians of the present era - the Railway Minister, Shri Lalu Prasad Yadav and the Bihar Chief Minister, Shri Nitish Kumar have also exhibited excellent statecraft in their respective domains.

The turn around in the fortunes of Indian Railways is ample evidence of the managerial skills of Sheri Lalu Yadav, so much so that the Railway Minister is being feted all around for his wizardry with Indian Railways.

Similarly, Shri Nitish Kumar’s innovative action in utilizing the skills of ex-servicemen by employing them as Special Auxiliary Police to tackle the menace is another apt example of the fabled “Chanakyaneeti”.
