The People called him The Great King because he helped all his citizens and treated them the same way a father treats his child. He gave handsome salaries to every worker. His army was paid 500 Pannas. It is believed that a Panna is a silver coin. Ashoka has given a lot of love to his people and had a very good heart. He gave up all types of violence after he saw the bloodshed in the battle field after the Kalinga War. Thats why now people know him as the great king.
