In the pre-Peshwa period, only Kshatriyas had the right to become kings or did the Brahmins also have such rights? Are there any proofs?

One thing you all know; But too much disobedience!

Brahmins have the highest authority in Hinduism or say in culture. But they rarely used it.

My Kshatriyas and other caste friends should not break me with grace. Maharashtra is famous for intellectualism. We will debate using wisdom.

In fact, everyone had the right to receive education, that is to say. The story of Ganika’s son, Satyakam Jabali, is well known. In the pre-Mahabharata, there was no caste system based on birth. It is the duty of the Brahmins to accept and donate freely; Most Brahmins accepted it. So much so that the hatred of Lakshmi and Saraswati is the best; The Brahmin Puranas who say so praiseworthy are found throughout history. In my childhood, many of you teachers will remember the many teachers who taught you to be smart and obese children free of charge while living in poverty, working in a low-paid school. People will remember the doctor who gave himself free, cheap medicines in normal conditions. It was mostly Brahmins.

Others did not exercise their right to receive education; It is not the fault of the Brahmins that the pursuit of money, power.

Though the Brahmins were not forbidden to do business, they did not have the respect of the scholars. If you mention the names of the four scholars in the Peshwa, you may remember; But say the names of four Brahmin lenders, merchants! Now comes the point.

Bhimarjunani won the Drupada kingdom as Guru Dakshana. Offered to the Guru. Dronacharya became king. Drona said to the defeated Drupada, “Since I am a Brahmin, I can rule as king, but I have deliberately accepted Guru’s profession. I do not want to be king with the disciple-offered kingdom. I give half your kingdom back to you. Now we have come to an equal level. The other half is also the same person as my ruler. I went to the elephants. ” Guru Drona did not return to Drupada’s kingdom again in his lifetime.

Later Drona, Kripa, Ashwatthama all fought in the war as Brahmin generals; No one objected. Therefore, it was the community’s belief that the Brahmins held the position of king, army chief.

The Brahmin girl’s self-depiction is never known; Of course, her deer were also abandoned. But strangely, even the poorer Brahmins were allowed to take part in the Kshatriya, even in the princess’s self. The example is again the drupad itself. Draupadi won by himself but Arjuna from Brahmaneshwas; And a rumor of Kshatriya started. It is an insult to us that a poor Brahmin should take a princess when so many kings are present; Started preparing for war. Then Drupada joined hands and requested the attendees; “The scholar Brahman has this right. Besides, he has proved his arsenal by winning; come to the banquet now.” In the Mahabharata, we find examples of a king, a king’s son-in-law, a commander.

Let’s go back to history.

Emperor Ashoka’s descendant, Brihadarath Maurya, was a lean, timid, cowardly extremist of Buddhist philosophy. Foreigners invaded India and the country was headed for slavery. His commander, Pushyamitra Shung, was also a very skilled, valiant warrior and a good general. The king was not ready to fight the invasion of the nation. Finally, Pushyamitra declared himself king by beheading the king in front of hundreds of people at a ceremony. This Pushyamitra was a Brahmin. He liberated the country by expelling the invaders. For some hundred years after this incident, Kalidas composed the play Malvika Agnimitra. The protagonist of the play is Agnimitra, grandson of Pushyamitra. Neither did Kalidasa know that the Brahmins should become kings of lineage.

Apart from this, there are examples of many Brahmin kings in India.
