WARFARE IN ANCIENT INDIA

Warfare in Ancient India
The army was arranged in several ways to fight wars according to the place and tactics.

The Chakra (wheel) Vyuha, Suchi (needle) Vyuha, Chayana (hawk) Vyuha and Mala (garland) Vyuha were the formations often used.

Our ancients made use of Dutas or ambassadors as peace-makers and Charas or spies for finding out the secrets of the enemies, There were certain well-defined rules of war in ancient India. Wars were fought in broad daylight and the parties retired at sunset.

Powerful weapons were not used against those who fled or yielded.

Unfair means were not adopted.
