ASOKA AS A TEETOTALLER

It deranged the entire digestive system, that resulted in the deterioration of health and unbearable agony. They applied pungent substances like pepper and ginger in the form of powder and juice to the worm to kill it. No action made its appearance. Many methods to kill the worm were tried and tested, but in vain. When it was touched with an onion as a last resort, it died immediately and passed out of the intestines.

The remedy was at last discovered. The elated queen then approached the ailing king and requested him to eat an onion as a cure for his ailment. Asoka shivered at its mention. He looked lost. It was a food item for the outcastes only. Could a King of Asoka's type, relish such talk? More so, the Buddhist royal monk? He ridiculed the suggestion and laughed heartily at the stupidity of the physician, who prescribed that. He declared that he would rather welcome his end than to descend from his path.
