I am reading sivagamiyin sabadham and ponniyin selvan.
After reading these (still iam reading ponniyin selvan), many questions arised in my mind. One of them is,
"What makes a society excel at one point of time"?
The society touches the zenith and after some time the descendents of same people became very weak and debile.What is the reason?
a.Is this fate , everything is preplanned by god? I
dont think so.
b.Is this due to any single person (king). That is
also not a fully satisfactory answer because I dont
think a single person can establish an empire
without the help of other able persons.
c. Is there any extraordinary co-incidence that all
the able handed warriors/state heads are born
contemporary and they come together and form an
empire? It seems to be a fairy tale for me.
But it is repeated again and again in history. From chandragupta to rashtrakudas to pallavas to cholas to moghals to british.
Let me know your opinion.
