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 :

I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)

I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
