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.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
