The Prince of peace was Guatama, the Buddha and the cradle of democracy in India was the republic of Vaishali. The was no slavery the women were fully emancipated. It was a time- the fifth centry BC - when the arts flourished. The symbol of the vitality of Vaishali was Amraphali, elected Court Dancer by the people and called the "Bride of the City". For her beauty was adored by thousands. Guatam- the Buddha walked this earth spreading enlightenment with his message of love and peace.

The tide of time turned against Ajatshatru causing him humiliating defeat. Woudned, Ajatshatru ran for his life fromthe battlefield and unltimately took refuged in a Vaishali village now disguised as a Vaishali slodier. It is Amrapali who nursed him...
