WARFARE IN ANCIENT INDIA

Warfare in Ancient India
OUR land is not only a nation of saints and philosophers, but also of heroes and warriors.

The Vedas and Puranas contain many stories about our fighting ways.

Dhanurveda or the science of war was a limb of the Vedas.

The Devas and Asuras were always. fighting against each other.

Indra, the King of Devas, had a mighty weapon called Vajrayudha or Thunderbolt.

The science and art of war was one of the lessons that ancient kings had compulsorily to learn.

Those who fought wars belonged to a class called Kshatriyas.

Kshatriyas formed an honoured section of our society. They looked upon it as their duty to protect the people against enemies.
