Book Description Amar Chitra Katha/ACK Media, 2008. Softcover. Condition: New. Shalivahana was a commoner who became king, a rare event in ancient India. He grew up as a poor widow`s son, in a poor potter`s family. A holy man is said to have foretold that he would be king one day. As a youth Salivahana broke-up the gangs that robbed traders` caravans. The people of what is now Paithan on the bank of river Godavari made him king. Victories followed and he created a prosperous kingdom with his successors forming the Satavahana dynasty. Shalivahana patronised popular dialects in preference to the elites` language Sanskrit. A celebrated collection of 700 verses in the popular language has come down to us from Shalivahana`s times. The Shalivahana era, also known as the Saka era, is used with Hindu calendars and the Indian national calendar. Its year zero begins in 78 C.E. Printed Pages: 32. Seller Inventory # 33412
