    DescriptionIndika was a book written by Megasthenes (c. 350 Bi290 BCE), a Greek traveler and geographer who visited India during the third century BCE. This account of India written by Megasthenes from his personal knowledge of the country is justly held to be almost invaluable for the light which it throws upon the obscurity of early Indian history. The book covers many fascinating subjects like how the ancient Indians tamed wild elephants, the seven castes of Indian, and strange customs like "A woman who kills the king when drunk becomes the wife of his successor." This book is a mesmerizing look at Ancient India.
