Yet another incident showing that India lazy and neglected behavior towards the historical script  when it comes to preserve them . The arthashastra written by the one of the greatest teacher of all time is now facing a crisis . According the the Oriental research Institute  (ORI), Mysore .

"The Great Chanakya"

Most the manuscripts are in really bad shaped and peeling off quickly . Due to lack of facilities the authorities are facing the difficult to protect them from sand and impurities . At the moment the authorities are trying to save the scripts by oil treatment but due to lack off funds there are finding difficult to cope up .

Arthashastra and about 60,000 other manuscripts at the institute came close to being reduced to ashes in two fire accidents sparked by short-circuit in 1996 and 1998. Sadly, till date, the manuscripts have not been secured in fireproof chambers.
