In Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat, Samrat Bindusar off late is behaving in a strange way. He somehow cannot see what is right and what is wrong. Weird as it may sound, the Samrat has become myopic where he isn’t paying any heed to Ashoka’s goodness and his attempts to save Magadh. Unfortunately, he is a Samrat but still he cannot see the weird games played by his loved ones in the palace right in front of his eyes.
Here we share 5 reasons why we have started disliking Samrat’s Attitude and Behavior:
He has Turned Biased
Samrat simply doesn’t want to hear or believe Ashoka. He is now biased. He is so prejudiced that he thinks anything that Ashoka does/or is doing is wrong. Unfortunately, he is not even ready to hear anybody saying in favor of Ashoka. This is the reason why he asked Acharya Radhagupt not to talk about Ashoka in the court room. He simply ignored Radhagupt as he knew he would talk in favor of him defending all his acts.
He is not Using His Brains to Comprehend Things
Samrat simply listen to others and even believes them. He has no idea that what he has been shown is false. For instance, he thinks Sushim helped them to win the war. However, he has no clue that the real fighter is Ashoka and not Sushim. Samrat doesn’t seem to be using his brain. He in fact, is seeing only those things which Sushim is making him see.
Samrat is not even listening to Rani Dharma
There was a time when Rani Dharma was Samrat’s favorite and he listened to her. However, now, he is not ready to even hear her. She keeps on requesting him and he keeps on telling her to shut her mouth. Every now and then he asks her to go from the court room, not paying any heed to her advice/opinion and view point.
He is Blinded by his Hatred Towards AShoka
There was a time when Bindusar loved Ashoka but now he hates him. This blind hate is distancing both of them. It all started when Ashoka asked his father to make him the Yuvraaj of Magadh. Ever since then Samrat thinks that Ashoka is too arrogant and greedy as well. Samrat thinks that Ashoka is not the same person and has changed post getting power.
He Doesn’t Trust Ashoka
In a shocking twist, Samrat doesn’t even trust Ashoka. Yes, he thinks Ashoka is an arrogant boy and a cheater. Unfortunately, despite explaining everything he is not ready to believe neither Ashoka nor his mother Dharma. He has turned stone hearted and is not at all ready to listen to Ashoka. This is the reason why he thinks that he has turned situations against Magadh in Kalinga as well. No, SAMRAT is not ready to listen that Jagananth has cheated Ashoka. Hei n fact thinks that AShoka has cheated Kaling and him as well.
