Rumour had it that a mighty Indian army was waiting on the other side to fight them.The Indus river, thus marks the end of his conquered lands.Alexander left India soon after naming some of his generals as governors or satraps of the conquered provinces. But in a few years, Indian forces chased away most of the generals. UNF FOR ME! Copyright 2012 Mocomi & Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt. Ltd. All Rights Reserved.©
