Slide 18 of 21: Upon returning from his expedition in India, in 325 BC, Alexander the Great brought great satisfaction to Kalanos, a Hindu ascetic who was returning to Europe with him. The old man requested to be killed, as he was exhausted. On the stake, before dying, Kalanos told Alexander the Great they would see each other again in Babylon. The Greek king hadn't planned on going to Babylon at the time... Yet, Alexander did end up dying in Babylon, two years later, at the age of 32.
