ASOKA AS A FATHER

She duly sealed the order with the royal red-wax and managed to stamp it with the impression of Asoka's teeth, while he was asleep.

The order was received in due time. It threw the ministers into dilemma. They read treachery between the lines. Kunala was a paragon of virtue, prophet of reason, pink of courtesy and prince of personal purity. He was the son of Asoka, the monk - marshal - monarch. It was a question of - "To obey or not to obey". The problem worried them most. For, they were impartial, yet loyal at the same time. So they decided to detain Kunala in custody, till ratification of the imperial order and clarification of their doubt from the capital. They were about to write to the centre when Kunala intervened. He was not for any compromise. "Father is God on earth. And God is justice personified. No need to doubt the genuineness of the order if it duly bears the impression of the king's teeth". He argued. "Delay is detrimental. Immediate execution of the royal order is legal and loyal", he affirmed. Moreover, he urged the ministers to carry out the order.
