    @ Krishna Arya: In this shloka, I think, Ashoka is said to be a descendant of Aditi, and therefore an ‘asura’, a ‘demon’. Am I right or wrong?
    In Greek, “daimon” is not always a bad demon. Arabia Eudaimon is ‘Blessed Arabia’ in Diodorus for instance. But I assume from the text that this ‘asura’ is a bad demon.
