Abstract

Kautilya’s most significant contribution in foreign policy is the theory of MandalaYoni, that incorporates discussion on the nature of state and inter-state relationship. It is important to understand Kautilya’s concept of ‘State’ which appears to be noticeably different from the concept of state in modern time. An analysis can help understanding the perspective of Kautilyan ideas about state, elements of state and how it can be the reason of dissimilarities between the inter-state relationship now and then. Along with the differences this paper aims to explore the possible relevance of Kautilyan theories on inter-state relationships in contemporary era.
