Emperor Ashok has been a great warrior and conqueror of all the time in Indian history. But there is one mystery related to Emperor Ashoka which will surprise you. He accepted Buddhism after the battle of Kalinga. Emperor Ashoka was the most gallant king and conqueror the Indian soil ever produced. It is also widely known that he turned into a monk after his encounter with Lord Buddha. But one mystery that still looms is about Ashoka’s “Nine Unknown Men” who he brought together in 273 BC after a bloody battle that took the lives of 100,000 men. In simple words, these 9 men to India are what Illuminati are to the West. Each of these Nine Unknown Men held a book of eternal knowledge on varied topics such as propaganda, politics, time travel and microbiology, etc. Legends even say that widely popular martial art of Judo was based on “leaks” from the Book of Physiology. The books have thus been passed on to the exact number of nine men but nobody knows who and where they are much like the Illuminati.
