Product Description

 

For 802 kilometres, the Kaveri river winds her way through hills, valleys, and plains, seeking to fulfill her destiny, her union with the Lord of the Sea. In this carefully researched book on the river Kaveri, authors Padma Seshadri and Padma Malini Sundararaghavan take us from the river’s origin in Talakaveri to the site of the ancient port of Poompuhar, engaging us with stories from mythology and history and anecdotes from the lives of great people who have shaped the regions along her banks.

 

 

Why did a Chola king dive into chasm into which Kaveri vanished? How did Kaveri set Kodagu style of draping a sari? How did a spider become a king? How did the Handsome Bridegroom of Srirangam, himself ‘abducted’, find a bride from another faith? This book takes us from the river’s origin in Talakaveri to the site of the ancient port of Poompuhar. It Happened Along the Kaveri: A Journey Through Space and Time.
