ASOKA AS AN ADMINISTRATOR

Blessed was Asoka to become the head of a great administrative machinery, shaped, organized and perfected by Chanakya, the celebrated Premier of his emperor-Warrior grand-father, Chandragupta, the founder of Maurya dynasty in 322 B.C. Luckily, he inherited a well-founded and firmly established kingdom that spared him from the onerous task of organizing the machinery, or innovating ways and means to patch up the loop- holes. Asoka happily enjoyed the fruits of the labors of his illustrious predecessors. So, nothing was left to his genius in this regard. The existing division of Kingdom into provinces and the hierarchy of officials with well defined duties and powers governing them, were allowed to continue, with changes here and there introduced, consequent on the annexation of Kalinga and his conversion to Buddhism.

But, the concept of Kingship underwent a drastic change as an aftermath of Kalinga War. Ever since his conversion, the sphere of his operation began growing wider and wider until at last, it encompassed the whole of the human race and the world at large. His duties and responsibilities were multiplied, a million times.
