Kalyan Rishi death while with Alexander

Kalyan Rishi travelled with Alexander into Persia, where, at the age of 73, he got exhausted and weakened. Although Alexander tried to dissuade him, Kalyan Rishi decided to end his life through self-immolation. He climbed the pyre, built by Ptolemy, the future King of Egypt, and did not flinch when the Flames engulfed him. Alexander was not present, but Kalyan Rishi left a dying message saying he would Meet Alexander in Babylon. Alexander later died in Babylon. This chronicle is recorded by Greek historians.

📜My book Battles for Delhi: Dilli Kareeb AST is a must-read for every Indian who wants to understand the price of freedom. The storytelling format makes it engrossing and engaging at the same time.
