Currently the loading screen quotes errroneously attribute the Arthashshastra to Chanakya.
Chanakya was the teacher and minister of Chandragupta Maurya, whereas Kautilya is the author of the Arthashshastra. While the two are often equated (out of ignorance or for ideological reasons), they are different persons, and the first versions of the Arthashshastra were composed only a few centuries after the Mauryas were gone. See this forum post for a more detailed explanation.
This patch therefore:
- changes the author from Chanakya to Kautilya;
- lists the quotes at the correct location in the file (under K instead of C);
- removes the chapter titles (which depend on the text edition or translation) and give a more precise location, to make it easier for people to look up.
For those interested, the Sanskrit is:
KAZ01.4.07 na-iti kauṭilyaḥ | 7 |
KAZ01.4.08 tīkṣṇa.daṇḍo hi bhūtānām udvejanīyo bhavati | 8 |
KAZ01.4.09 mṛdu.daṇḍaḥ paribhūyate | 9 |
KAZ01.4.10 yathā.arha.daṇḍaḥ pūjyate | 10 |
KAZ01.19.01 rājānam utthitam anūttiṣṭhante bhṛtyāḥ | 1 |
KAZ01.19.02 pramādyantam anupramādyanti | 2 |
And the translations in Patrick Olivelle King, Governance, and Law in
Ancient India / Kauṭilya’s Arthaśāstra / A New Annotated Translation (Oxford 2013) are on p. 69:
7 “No,” says Kauṭilya;
8 “for one who punishes severely terriﬁes the people,
9 and one who punishes lightly is treated with contempt,
10 whereas one who dispenses appropriate punishment is treated with respect.
and on p. 92:
1 When the king is energetic, people in his service, in turn, become energetic;
2 and when he is lethargic, they, in turn, become lethargic.
