Calanus a.k.a. Kalanos: Calanus was one of a group of ascetics encamped near Taxila at the time of Alexander the Great conquests of India. It was from Calanus, that Alexander came to know of Dandamis, the leader of their group, whom Alexander later went to meet in forest. Later, upon Alexander's invitation Calanus joined him in the city and later accompanied him back to the west. He was likely to be a Hindu sadhu, whom Greeks called gymnosophists, who had followed the Greek army back from Punjab. His original name was Kalyana sometimes referred to also as Sphines, Calanus was name given to him by Greeks. He was seventy-three years of age at that time. When the Persian weather and travel had weakened him, he informed Alexander that he would rather like to die than live as an in-valid. He decided to take away his life by self-immolation. Although, Alexander tried to desist him from doing so but upon his insistence the job of building a pyre was entrusted to Ptolemy. Calanus is mentioned also by Alexander's admiral, Nearchus and Chares of Mytilene. The city where this immolation took place was Susa in the year 322 B.C.He did not flinch as he burnt to the astonishment of those who watched.
