CURSE OF TALAKAD (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.150

The Curse of Talakad: Re(situating) and Re(contextualizing) a Legend in History.

Let Talakad become sand...
Let Malingi become a whirlpool...
Let the Mysore Kings fail to beget sons...

This is the Curse of Talakad. According to legend, the curse 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.

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

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.
