The Curse of Talakad: (Re)situating and (Re)contextualizing a Legend in History
The Curse of Talakad: (Re)situating and (Re)contextualizing a Legend in History
Description
From the Back of the Book :

According to legend, the 'Curse of Talakad' was uttered four hundred years ago, by the wife of a defeated Viceroy of the Vijayanagar Empire on Raja Wodeyar of Mysore. People believe that the curse is true...and continues to hold true till this day.

Looking at the evidence at Talakad, Malingi and the Wodeyar genealogy, one is tempted to believe the curse: the ancient city of Talakad is completely buried under sand hills...Malingi is situated dangerously close to the churning waters of the Cauvery river...and Wodeyar genealogy has shown a strange pattern over the last four centuries.

The curse of Talakad is no ordinary legend - it ties two natural events with a genealogical part that has predicted a sequence of future events...right to this day!

The book puts together all evidence - archaeological, geological and historical about the events at Talakad and Malingi, as well as the historical facts about the Wodeyar genealogy. Some startling historical information from archival records and old travelogues have led to clues that 'solve' the mystery of the Curse of Talakad...almost.

About the Author :

Sashi Sivramkrishna has done his doctorate in Economics from cornell University and his present activities include running his own business, research and teaching Economics, documentary filmmaking and writing.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
