Keeping up with the Cholas: The Kalki Connection

What happens when historical and fictional worlds collide? Sometimes, the result can be a glorious work of art that’s inspirational, insightful and entertaining all at once – like Kalki Krishnamurthy’s Ponniyin Selvan. How did Kalki make even his imaginary characters seem so believable? What marvellous objects and settings from the Chola period can we still see today? Which historical events inspired Kalki to spin his own saga? Join us for an engaging online session as we dive into the stories from south Indian history that formed the foundations of Ponniyin Selvan.

Storytrails is a wonderful organization. I highly recommend the Bazaar trail as you will experience sights, sounds and smells that are at times overwhelming, but wonderfully so.
