The man who conquered himself

Once upon a time there was a great king who conquered all kingdoms of the indian subcontinent.
His military prowess was beyond any that the world had seen. Soon he began expanding his territories.

But once, he besieged the kingdom of Kalinga. The warriors of kalinga were famed for their battle skills. There was a war.

In the very last battle, clashed the entire army of the king and the Kalinga. The king won, but he couldn't stand the sight. The Blood spilled was so great that the rivers of the areas turned red. The sight of the people wailing for their beloved was so great that the king's heart ached!

This sight was so astounding, that the king gave up war, and took the name of Buddha. T
This man was Ashoka the great... the man who conquered himself.
