"Why,I have been asked did i choose to build my myth around the emperor Asoka well to be honest.Emperor Asoka is personal hero of mine.Asoka has been one of the greatest emperors in the country.what is more remarkable is the fact that there are very few have showen the kind of character transformation that Asoka went through.To start with tremendous ambition and drive to gain and wield power and instead pursure peace and make such a critical choice,makes emperor Asoka,an admirable person and role model.His entire existence is a dichotomy and he isnt simply good or bad but much more complex"-Gaurav jain.
