Kautilya’s views on the Nature and Elements of State.

Kautilyan concept of state is very broad. Kautilya being a practical and rational thinkers spent no time in discussing the origin of state and dealt directly with the concept of state. Kautilyan state is very exhaustive in its functions. It can be called as welfare state. The state of Kautilya also took the measures to provide avenues of employment to a large body of inhabitants.

Kautilya on the one hand, accepts the joint family system and on the other hand, forced the individual’s responsibility towards his family. These views of Kautilya’s theory of state is very relevant in contemporary times. The fact that countries act in their own self-interest was a timeless principle of Kautilya’s Arthashastra.

The Kautilyan theory of state is very Mesiculons exhaustive and comprehensive. It explains not only the Administration of the state but also explains the relationship with the foreign states. Arthashastra speaks less about the politics and deals with various aspects of administration of the state in detail, yet it provides necessary proposal and proposition for the removal of hindrances from the path of progress and development of the state.
