K.A Nilakanta Sastri - Writings in The Hindu

Tue 20 November 2018 by Thejaswi Puthraya

K.A Nilakanta Sastri was an Indian historian who specialized in South Indian history and was an expert in Cholas. The Hindu compiled a list of his best contributions there and released them as a book.

Most of these essays are from the 1950s and some from the early 60s and discuss various aspects of the Tamil Sangam era, the Cholas - their contributions and conquests and the other significant rulers of South India.

This book has set up the pitch for me to read his other books especially the one on the Cholas.
