    The video is very enjoyable yet, a classic case of viewing history through the western lens. For example, there is no mention of "King Porus" in indian history perhaps during the harappan era he might have been a chieftain of some sorts. A cultural shift is inevitable when a foreign power captures a place, Just like the speaker mentioned "Alexander started wearing superior quality persian clothes etc" Well, the fact of the matter is at that point in time India was a major economic and trade superpower exporting clothes, spices, crops, jewels etc. Much of "persian" clothes etc were these very exported items. And it continued to be that till the time Britishers colonised, India's contribution to the world gdp was around 20%. Anyways, "the edge of the world' as he says was known to be the basin of Saraswati river which flowed violently and profusely back around Alexander's period. One can still see the basin of the river after 2000 years on google maps around sindh area. History is blotted and tarnished yo, its always told from the perspective of someone to better suit the narrative, the more you read the more you will learn.

    Ancient Olympic judges were 'nt fools! Indeed, they were thoroughly familiar w/ both the Argos 'Orestia' (i.e.: Hellenic for 'of-the-mountains') in the backwoods of ancient Macedon-proper (i.e.: where my own parents are from) --- ...named, no less, after the site of their own distinct Doric Hellenic origins (+ irrespective of how some 'self-styled historians' ambitiously misrepresent the matter) --- ...AS WELL (familiarity) w/ the greater Argos of 'yore; wherewith they in-fact DID invite 'any & all' Macedonians (at least those who 'd been privileged w/ financial patrons; of which there were 'nt likely many at-the-time) to boldly participate in 'then-strictly-Hellenic' (i.e.: non-barbarian; pre-Demosthenes) quatrennial 'fellowship' (...entailing athletics); ...hence it 's irresponsible for anyone to employ this misguided argument! ANYONE questioning a Macedonian 's intrinsic 'Hellenicity' in ancient times 'd 've been put-to-death in Macedon-proper, I wager!

      Alexander is known as Alexander the great because he conquered the most powerful nation of the time, being a military genius, and being able to handle the various people he encountered in his invasion

    King Puru(Porus) crushed his army under army of elephants. Alexander never won against him. The hypocrite so called historians tried their best to hide the shame of loss of Alexander. 😂😂😂😂 Alexander was disgraced and was forced to surrender and return back. 😂😂😂😂😂

      Greek influence stayed in the area hundreds of years after. Alexander beat porus, but porus was a respectable opponent, and Indian would have been even harder than Porus.

    Alexander earned the respect of people with hard work. I am Anatolian(Kurdish/Turkish) whose land was conquered by him many years ago. However, I Respect and Value him Highly as an Anatolian. I don't see him as an Invader. He deserved and Earned our respect. He was different. He was Fearless. He was the man of Value. Although He was from Hellenic Culture. For me, He was someone that I would die willingly. He did not force his man instead He explains why they should fight for him. I am so sad that we have little knowledge about his daily routine and what drove him. I believe many of his life details were recorded by Ptolemy and documented in the great library of Alexandria/Egypt Which was lost to fire... Where I was born Mezepotiamia has seen many Great Leaders and Kings. But None was like Alexander, Iskender the way we call him. My Hometown has Ancient Castles/Graves Ruins from his Era with Greek Writing. Throughout my life, I sometimes did sit next to those ruins and thought about him. I wish I was with him to go through his glorious journey together. He had many wrongdoings However He was special Regardless. Your Name will stay in Anatolia and Mesopotamia for Thousands of years...

    Greeks told his army didn't want to go inside India because they were missing homes, Reality - The war of Alexander with King Porus caused him so many casualties he didn't even think of and then told that the Porus is just a small king, Inside this Country, there is an Emipre named Magadha, which has an even bigger army and lands resources and strong men. His army feared this and didn't dare to enter India.

      @Aidan Brem Egypt welcomed him as a liberator actually and crowned him pharaoh (Ptolemy dynasty comes from Alexander’s associate) and his biggest and probably most positive influence was the Hellenistic era, but yes he did sack a lot of cities and to many was cruel tyrant.

    • Aidan Brem

      Lol, it isn’t. The ancient world was brutal, nearly the entire population lived in horrific poverty, and power and wealth was even more centralized in the hands of the elite than today. Today you can go to the grocery store and buy goods that would bankrupt a king of this era. You have the entire worth of humanity’s knowledge at your fingertips. If you really want to go back and live in an era of death, barbarity, plague and war, you’re an idiot. You wouldn’t be Alexander. You would most likely be a pathetic farmer, never allowed to do anything more but work your field and maybe die in some megalomaniac’s army. You’d never see Alexandria, and if you did it would be a city of a few hundred rich elites, with thousands of impoverished peasants struggling to make a living. Life is better now than the entirety of human history. If you don’t believe that, go see a therapist lol. Also, don’t idealize war. Why did Alexander even do this? He was no liberator, he wreaked death and havoc over the entire world and for what? His ego? What do you think happened to the peoples of the cities he conquered? They were killed, and the blood is on his hands. He was a great conquerer, but no great conquerer is a hero. Just another crazed megalomaniac, high on the scent of his own piss, throwing away thousands of lives and ending tens of thousands more for his own ego.

    He was a mass murderer and should not be worshipped. If the Indians had not stopped him he would have killed more to satisfy his ambitions. Alexander died undefeated in battle is a false statement....his army fought bravely with Porus but was handed the 1st defeat...where Alexander lost is favorite horse, was captured and then pardoned by Porus. His historians mainly Calesthenes always wrote in favor of Alexander even if it was lie, scared to die at his kings hand...which eventually he had to. Alexander army and later his generals like Selecus marry their daughters to Chandra Gupta and move back leaving Chandra Gupta as the king.

    In fact Alexander was defeated and fled away by Indian king Porus, there are strong reasons behind this, firstly wherever Greek army was victorious it brutely murdered the natives of that place but in case of Porus dynasty it could not do so as the Greek army had a lot of fear of Porus and other Indian kings like Nanda's of Magadh

    This is why you have to conduct due diligence and retrieve history from more than just one source. I say this because generally when you listen to historians from the west. They tend not to recount 100% the entire truth (except for France and Greece) of what took place. For instance; why is Alexander call Alexander the Great? That is subjective because they’re many great men who have voyaged and conquered more regions and territories of the world in which Alexander did not know they even existed. Another example this narrator does not give is an account of the real reason why Alexander’s soldiers started a mutiny. I will tell you. When Alexander’s men went out to face King Porus, the soldiers did not want to get involve in that battle. But why? When Alexander had formed an alliance with Taxila, the people there had forewarned Alexander and his men of how great King Porus army is. They went into details about the amount of soldiers that he has and in addition, the amount of elephants that he has at his disposal. The Taxila people saw the fear in Alexander men. They told the soldiers and Alexander that King Porus coalition is nothing compare to what await them in India. As you are aware, Alexander did not take heed of the warning, and most of his men were slaughtered and in fact, Alexander barely made out alive. They retreated while King Porus men was still on there tail. They push Alexander men as far back to the River of Beas before returning back. It’s there where Alexander suggested to his men that they should regroup and strategize a plan to re-attack King Porus and his men. This is the place and time where Alexander’s men had discussed among themselves about killing Alexander and returning back to Macadamia without him. Because of this, Alexander had no other choice but to accept defeat and give up on his dream of crossing into India.

    THE no. 1 CRITICAL event: While Diogenes was relaxing in the morning sunlight, Alexander (the Great), thrilled to meet the famous philosopher, asked if there was any favour he might do for him. Diogenes replied, "Yes, stand out of my sunlight." Alexander then declared, "If I were not Alexander, then I should wish to be Diogenes." "If I were not Diogenes, I would still wish to be Diogenes," Diogenes replied. In another account of the conversation, Alexander found the philosopher looking attentively at a pile of human bones. Diogenes explained, "I am searching for the bones of your father but cannot distinguish them from those of a slave."

    Revolutions are ambiguous things. Their success is generally proportionate to their power of adaptation and to the reabsorption within them of what they rebelled against. A thousand reforms have left the world as corrupt as ever, for each successful reform has founded a new institution, and this institution has bred its new and congenial abuses. *George Santayana* What serious-minded men not engaged in the professional business of philosophy most want to know is what modifications and abandonments of intellectual inheritance are required by the newer industrial, political, and scientific movements. *John Dewey* Do you then be reasonable and do not mind whether the teachers of philosophy are good or bad, but think only of philosophy herself. Try to examine her well and truly; and if she be evil, seek to turn away all men from her, but if she be what I believe she is, then follow her and serve her, and be of good cheer. *Socrates to Crito* //
