When King Ashoka got married, he promised his wife that he will live a life full of peace. But then, when kalinga war broke out, his ministers insisted ghim to fight once and for all. He agreed. After winning the war, when he saw the blood filled city, he felt very depressed and sorryfor the people who were dead.... Due to the breaking of promise, his wife left him. She left their son and daughter, Mahender and Sanghamitra to their father. Then King Ashoka realised his mistakes and owned peace.
