ASOKA AS A FATHER

To reclaim him, and to carry, on the normal business of the state, the ministers prevailed upon him to marry another. They pleaded time and again: "Company keeps one gay and makes the misery go. Partnership relieves boredom and revives interest and more so with a lovely and lively young one. Nearness to the devoted mitigates the agony. Consolation flows between them and allows sweetness spring up in their hearts". Asoka nodded his head, in answer to their powerful persuasion. Soon, an alliance was fixed and solemnization completed. The void was atlast filled up.

Asoka was coupled with Tishyarakshita, an immature young woman. The match could be likened to the union of the 'Dusk' with the 'Dawn'. For, she was frivolous and amorous, dissolute and depraved, lustful and spiteful, besides lowly and beastly. She was hopelessly unworthy of being a Queen, more so of Asoka, for that matter. She was unfit, even to enter the portals of the Maurya Palace.
