If we were to watch the history carefully, the keen eye will always notice that there had been a particular clan or set of people, aristocrats or warriors who would have played a crucial role in building that nation.

The one inspired me the most were the SAMURAI of Japan. These Samurai with their Shogunates and their unimaginable loyalty to the King and the Nation is a very rare thing. I was even wondering whether SAMURAI accounts are simply a myth. But there are well documented detailed records. The point to be noted here is Japan was never conquered by any other country; apparently they lost in the Second World War only because of the advent of the Nuclear bombing on General Public. Japan was even one among the nations to share the war booty in the First World War.

The Japanese mindset of sacrifice for the common good is unprecedented and is a lesson for people of all parts of the world. The latest example is the elderly Japanese citizen. Who are volunteering themselves for testing, the hazardous water of the nuclear reactor leakages caused by the earthquake destructions at Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Reactor. (Leave alone the miseries caused by the quake itself)

On the other side when I look at my own country’s history, I could see either many Emperors who reach great heights with their independent might or kings subjugated by conquerors in bunches, in most cases cheated by a neighbor king. There was never a collective effort for a common good.

Though we always had Great Monarchs and Emperors, inevitably one could notice in our history that the invaders never failed. Whether great invaders did not invade the country when Great Monarch ruled or when famous Emperors ruled the invaders didn’t choose to invade no one can conclude.

But except for one example of Humayun of the Mogul Dynasty no other big record is there that a kingdom which was lost to an invasion was regained by the same Dynasty or King. This point will be very obvious if we look at the invasions right from Alexander the Great to that of East India Company. Here I prefer not to take the Aryan Invasion theory; even if we take that into account then also the theory again proves to be correct.

In one phrase we would say that India was always an “INVADER’S PARADISE”.

Why was India an INVADER’S PARADISE?

Was it the climatic condition of country so comfortable, which made us less ambitious?

Were the rich resources and abundant natural supplies that made us less adventurous?

Was the nature of betrayal specific to us or is it a universal phenomenon?

Was there an absence of a loyal clan or group of people similar to THE SAMURAI in India?

Which of these made our great nation to this kind of a victim as the INVADER’S PARADISE?

The answer is none. Then what made things always go wrong. It’s very simple; we too had our own share of SAMURAI, but only that, they were an ANTI(Dark)-SAMURAI kind of people who were always ready to betray the common good.


Why were they ever betraying it? And what vested interests they had.

What were the impacts in today’s society is what we are going to explore in this book, in an unbiased approach (though we live in a strongly biased society)

I assure you that I won’t be getting into unnecessary quotations are opposition of religion or our mythology. I hope you heard it right I said unnecessary, so if necessary mentions will be there.
