The Great Alexander Part II

Well, I’m back to write more about the “The great Alexander” that I left last night.

The Alexander was so obsessive with his campaign that he left his empire behind by giving rule to his father’s general. So when he was going back he didn’t went straight to Macedonia, instead, He took the different route and won many state wars.

Now I really want to focus more on the topic, So, I shall start form beginning.   

Alexander III was the son of the Philip II, king of Macedonia and Olympias, the princess of neighboring Epirus . He is considered as one of the greatest military genius who never lost a single war despite outnumbered many times against enemies. He was inspired from later conquer Hannibal the Carthaginian, the Romans Pompey and Caesar, and Napoleon. The Alexander was born 356 BC ago in Pella, the ancient capital of Macedonia.

Alexander spent his childhood watching his father invading others and transforming Macedonia into a powerful state. It had a great impression on him and urged him to accompanying his father during the wars.  When Alexander was only 10 years old he tamed a unruly horse who have eaten all other skin whoever tried to ride him. When Alexander tamed the horseBucephalus, his friends filled with joy; when Alexander get off the horse, his father was shedding tears, he hugged his son and kissed and said, “My son Macedonia is too small for you.”

When Alexander was 13 years old Philip hired Greek philosopher Aristotle to be Alexander tutor.

In 340 BC, when Philip assembled a large Macedonian army and invaded Thrace, he left his only 16 years old son with the power to rule Macedonia. It shows that even at so young age Alexander was considered capable to rule the Macedonia. But as the Macedonian army advance in Thrace, Thracian tribe of Maedi at north eastern border revolt and pose a danger to country. Alexander quickly assembled an army and the Maedi swiftly. Capture the rebels and named the city after his name as Alexanderopoils.

After this his Philip posted him among senior generals as the army invaded Greece. Some historian said that it was Alexander bravery that Macedonian won the battle.  

Family Spilt

Philip family spilt apart after the defeat of the Greeks; the main reason behind this was Philip marriage to a Macedonian girl of high nobility. Her name was Cleopatra. At the wedding Cleopatra’s uncle Attalus, made a remark about Philip, legitimate heir, pure Macedonian blood. At this Alexander got furious and throw his cup at him and blasted him. Philip back Attalus and stoop up and even drew his sword, and charged at Alexander, only to tip and fall on his face in his drunken condition. Alexander shouted: “Look, here is the man who was making ready to cross from Europe to Asia, and who cannot even cross from on table to another without losing his balance.”  He then took his mother along and fled of the country to Epirus. He allowed returning later, but he remains unsecure at the Macedonian court.

In the Spring of 336 BC, When Philip set Persian invasion in motion, he was killed by a noble Macedonian named Pausanias. There are suspense about the assassination of the Philip. Some said that it was because the man who killed Philip was because he was denied justice by him. And on other hand some said the real conspirator were Alexander and oplympias. Phillip, the great Macedonian conqueror, the man who liberated his own country, and brought from the edge of the abyss into the world reigning power, left his Persian  dream to his successor King Alexander III.




The great Alexander

Many person in this world thought they can conquer everything with their passion and hard work. And it remains satisfactory that most of the person were able to do what they had thought. We have many examples from history; like the one of The Great Alexander of Macedonia; who almost conquered half the world but died at Babylon unfortunately at so young age during his journey back to home. He was a great visionary and fathoms his enemy before charged upon. He was generous too; and always appreciated bravery despite his stiff opposition.

Once, he let a king free from his arrest despite the known fact about that he is the biggest hurdle between him and victory over India. And this is the great example of his generosity. He was tutored by Aristotle.

He invaded India 326 BC but was forced back by his troops. Or some rumors were that his troops were fear of army of that time ruler of India.

When Alexander was only 10 years old, a trader from Thessaly brought Philip(The father of Alexander) a horse, which he offered to sell for thirteen talents. The horse refused to be mounted. Alexander had a eagle eye and he observed well the fear of horse’s own shadow. Alexander asked to managed the horse and he tamed horse eventually. His father was so overjoyed overt this and tear were flowing though his cheeks of happiness and courage he seen in hi son. He said, “My Boy, You must find a kingdom big enough beyond Macedon because Macedon is too small for you” and bought the horse for him.

 The horse named Bucephalas, meaning “ox-head” and later when horse died due to the old age, Alexander named a city after him, Bucephalas.

 He even forgive an Indian king called Porus after defeating him. It was king porus’s bravery that impressed the The great Alexander, and made him an ally. Alexander was keen to enter even beyond The Mighty Ganga but his troops revolt and asked to stop there and go back to their native land to see their child, wives and parents whom they had left long ago. Even Alexander soldiers were also frightened after the long years of fights. Alexander couldn’t persuaded his army and after watching his pleading general he decided to go back to Macedonia.

And when he was going back; died at Babylon at the age of young age of 32 and couldn’t reach his homeland alive. But his memories always remain with Macedonian. The great Alexander will always be remain as the one never lost a war. His fierce ability and astute mind along with his loyal soldiers; and generals made him uncrowned king of the world. His blind faith in his abilities and ambition to conquer the world keep him going despite many hurdles.  He is great source of inspiration for those who fear of problems and obstacles. Whole world is inspired by The Great Alexander. We must learn from his  never give up attitude: always trying with well planned and timed.

Well!!! This will not be enough to write about such greatest leader of the world but as I am running out of time I must stop writing about and will come back with new discovery about The Great warrior…………



Adequate, Manner, What a buhshit it is?

Last night I was in reception of my company’s boss marriage and I was overwhelmed by the grand reception they have thrown on their marriage auspicious occasion. I was there last night with my friend Naresh, Team-manager Mr. Ram Kumar and another office colleague a female employee ( I don’t want to mention her name in this list) as I think that It will defamatory without her consent to mention her in my blog. Although I am not here to write anything wrong about anyone. It’s just a reminiscing on last night reception that I’ll remember one of the best receptions I have ever attended in my life yet. I was overwhelmed by their hospitality. It was great to be there and since only four employees were invited for the marriage, it wasn’t a big office party, only we were invited as we are having friendly relation more than an official relation.

It was a little embracing situation for a person who belongs to lower middle family and have never been attended such big reception. And the adequate and manner, actually I called them showoff, But some of them are good and some pretend to be civilized. I am and my friend is different kind of people who always banking upon good food and can’t help ourselves in controlling ourselves from gulping food at rapid pace. Actually I am more vulnerable in thing regard as it is my habit to eat food fast.

Well! Let this topic go, why I am making it a issue. Everybody have distinct personalities, having different style and different habit.

Actually I want to write only about that I enjoy the reception along with a senior, friend and colleague that are more important than discussing the habit and other non-proportional matter.

 I got nostalgic expression once again from the same bitch who met me again while I was heading to office. I smelling some conspiracy here, be it from divine side or human side but something is sure to happen. Let’s wait and watch…which side the camel sits?

The healing factors

This world is full of tension and the life taken every joy of human being in this era of much anxious life where are trouble at every step. Though human have discovered many sources to overcome that stress factor. Some of them like laughing, music and dance is really awesome things that human have ever discover. Laughter is the biggest healing therapy to any tension that every human being suffer. But who can make a smile when he is going through hard and rough patch. But we must not forget that there always a day after the dark night.

So don’t give up ever, even in hardest and most worst condition. Because there is always a hope, always a door open which we can’t see that time but it is, always.

The second is music which let us feel tranquil and peace at heart and mind. Well, I don’t know about other what they think about the music But I have listen a lot and read as well in many survey and many books that music is a great factor to get distress. And it is not a joke. This is my personal experience. Whenever I felt like down or sad I always opt to music and it help get distressed.

Dance is another factor to get distress. Bu it’s not everybody’s cup of tea. It take a lot of practice to dance properly otherwise we can hurt ourselves by dancing like uncouth. First we must learn basic of dance then we can make ourselves capable of dancing in front of public. Otherwise everybody will make our joke for our bizarre dance. Dance can not only distress you it make you happy and help you shed weight to be fit. Because when we dance our whole body parts move they we dance and practice being form though this healing touch.

Well! I really want to mention here that it is, just, my personal opinion and nobody should take it seriously. Even I can’t dance and I have realize it at many occasion since I have understand this thing around me. I am a shy person who can’t get out of fear of being get exposed of weak dancing skill. Even my heart beat for dance and my feet move automatically to dance tone. But Somehow I couldn’t stand up and took myself to dancing stage.

I felt it many time whenever there were functions, marriages, Parties and other occasion where many person dance but shy person like me stand to corner and jut watch people dancing. Sometime I think that must take dancing classes to learn the dance , at least I must learn the basic dancing skill which will help win many hearts. But problem is that I kept thinking and don’t take action. For quite a few time I went to dance floor But came back instantly after watching people dancing well. I always underestimated my self. I really want to rib this bad habit of me. I don’t want shy away from dance anymore and I know that I can take rein in my hand once I get serious about it. And this time I am dam serious to learn dancing skill.

love in mind

Just like a passionate blue cancerian, my mind is always full with romantic feeling all the time. I always think about you. I see only you in every beautiful things. Every beat of my heart, beat for you. I Don’t know, why you just ignore me. We meet, incidentally, coincidentally and some time I think, may be there is someone who truly trying to get both of us close. But when you watch the way at me, it really rip through my heart and make me feel awake-ward; you really make me feel ashamed like I have committed a sin by falling in love with you. I wish you felt what it was like that I felt the moments, you really made me feel an ache.

You have fathom that I’ll not react anytime despite your many cynical attempts. I just hope that you do well whatever you do and always remain happy.

I’ll take care of everything whatever you have left for me ache, pain and loneliness.

And I really wanna thank you for the some of the best moments both we have lived. Good Bye My Lover!! Forever…….
