  • Dear Gokul

    Welldone and very interesting

    It states for sales outside India Does that mean there is an Indian Edition?


    If I can stop one heart from breaking,I shall not live in vain;
    If I can ease one life the aching,Or cool one pain,
    Or help one fainting robin, Into his nest again,
    I shall not live in vain.
    Emily Dickinson

  • Dear Gokul
    Congrats. Is it possible for you to get a copy of Nagapattinam to Swarnadweepa and send along with a copy of your Paisasam? Kindly let me know the price and I will send to you. I will be happy if you can arrange for this on coming saturday and handover to Chandramouli(my adoted son)at Book Fair.
  • thanks for sharing the link gokul - Ebooks are available for purchase - and
    good think is there are free downloads - of the index, appendix ( incl
    famous inscriptions in this context)

    Another good thing, is the priced ebook /pdfs - you can buy article wise.
    the free download index has short bios of the contributors incl our Gokul's
  • Paisaasam is easily available in Palaniappa stall. Nagappattinam book I am not sure who is distributing in India.
  • This book features a British painting of 18th century showing the full vihara compelx as it existed before the demolition (not just the towers but the whole complex)

    Incidentally, I was fortunate enough to see all the items from a recent excavation in the Nagai vihara complex. I was not allowed to photograph - but holding rajaraja's cheppuk kaasu and a buddhist pottery in my palm was a peculiar experience.

  • Dear Gokul

    I can experience your joy. Is there any write-up about the excavation?
