ASOKA AS AN ADMINISTRATOR

He proclaimed his revolutionary relationship with his subjects in clear-cut terms thus: "All men are my children and just as I desire for my children that they may enjoy every kind of prosperity and happiness, in both this world and the next. So also I desire the same for all men". He went further, "Just as a man, having made over his child to a skilful nurse, feels confident and says to himself; "The skilful nurse is zealous to take care of my child's happiness, even so my officials have been created for the welfare and happiness of the country". His paternal attitude thus became self-evident and ensured a steady progress and ethereal bliss among his people.

To add to this, Asoka believed that the true conquest in any field of action is the conquest by the "Right" and not by the "Might". Coercion and brute-force would not-bring permanent peace and perpetual bliss. Peaceful means and non-violent ways ensure solidarity among the people, stability of the kingdom, vitality of King-ship and divinity of soul.
