The first contribution of Brahmins to the #Hindu National Pride was this #Brahmin ‘s reply to the 1st known foreign invaders, the Greeks(they called him ‘Dandamis’) on being threatened to be beheaded on his refusal to meet Alexander.
“Alexander has’nt yet seen other bank of Vyas
If he successfully faces brave🇮🇳states beyond & yonder still
the powerful empire of Magadh,
yet remain alive,I shall consider.
He may behead me but can’t kill my soul”

Plutarch gives full text of this #Brahmin ‘s fearless reply
Alexander realized, #Brahmins exerted powerful influences upon the governments of🇮🇳Republics,
that tongues of these fearless Brahmins were sharper than Khatriya swords.

Before beheading one he asked,
why he instigated a certain-ruler against him & came the reply👇🏻
“It was my most sacred tenant,if I were to live, I ought to live honourably, else I should die”.
Plutarch LX1V
