ASOKA AS A FATHER

They dared not to such sin. It was against their conscience, and so against God. They vacillated and cursed their Office, for expecting such ruthless action and heinous crime. Sensing their unwillingness, Kunala in his capacity as the Governor commanded an outcaste to pluck out his eyes. He did.

To complete the rest of the royal command, he left Taxila with his faithful consort. He wandered aimlessly, begging for food and shelter hither and thither, for long. The on-lookers commented, "Oh fate, how cruel art thou to place a begging bowl in the royal hands, born to hold the imperial Maurya sceptre!" His sightless misery added fuel to the fire and completed the picture of woe. His cup of sorrow overflowed. Wandering through the pathless forests and forlorn mountains, they providentially came to Pataliputra. Kunala managed to get access to the palace, and went straight into the innermost court.
