There is very popular myth that Alexander defeated Porus in 300 BC. This myth is propagated by the Western historians, mainly, British. The writings of Curtius, Justin, Diodorus, Arrian and Plutarch show that Alexander was defeated by Porus and was forced to make a treaty to save the lives of his soldiers. The Indian king in his "grand-pardoning" manner let Alexander go free. Alexander, as a matter of fact, was a coward and a cruel king. What do you guys think?
