Resistance to Alexander in India.


Alexander, when he invaded India, encountered severe resistance the like of which he had not encountered elsewhere. Indian kingdoms also kept mercenaries as soldiers who fought the Greeks with great fervour. In one citadel, he obtained their surrender after severe fighting.
