Did you ever imagine that India was also in contact with the Greeks? Yes that is true, way back in history, during the ancient period the Greeks had invaded India and captured various parts of the subcontinent. Some of them stayed back and formed the Indo-Greek Kingdom. Very few of us know about Indo-Greek history in detail. That’s because traditional history books in school never really touched upon such interesting topics. But being an Indian, it is always good to be at least aware about Seleucus Nicator, Seleucid Empire etc. There are several interesting facts about Indo-Greek history that will definitely blow your mind. Only if you invest some time in understanding the fascinating historical aspects of the Seleucid Empire, will you get an Idea about what living in the Indian subcontinent was like, back then in the ancient period.
The problem with the internet is that there are many random websites that will give you random information about Indo-Greek history and Seleucus Nicator. Experts always say that it is important to cross check the source of Information before you read anything on the internet. Many websites do not cross check vital stats with authentic reference points before sharing anything. This can be very misleading when someone is actually looking for information about ancient history like Seleucus Nicator and Seleucid Empire. Whenever you are studying about a particular empire, you should firstly check if the timelines mentioned are correct. Then comes the chronology of rulers who ruled in that particular empire. The best thing to do would be buying some real good books rather than depending on generic websites on the internet. Sadly with the advent of technology and the web-world, nobody wants to buy books. Why would anybody, when obtaining information in the internet is just a matter of few clicks!
