He further goes on by talking about a state and the king. He says that a matter should always remain between two people, one the king and the other with the concerned minister. If a third person gets to know about the matter the whole assembly will know about it. Here Chanakya is trying to say that one should never reveal a secret to the person who has nothing to do with the matter, just for the fun purpose. Also, Chanakya says that when you let other know about your weakness they take advantage of that to use it against you. So always keep control of your emotions and feelings.

Some of his views were contradicting each other as well. At first, he says that a man should marry a woman who always stays loyal to him regardless of her class and in another he goes on by saying that a man should always marry a woman of the same class. Which one should we believe? Well, in my opinion, NONE.
Chanakya Neeti may be inspiring but some of the views are just not acceptable.
