Desingu rajan...

Reading 'Textures of Time'. Very well written book. Desingu Rajan, I learn now was actually Tej Singh a Rajput prince, in Senji. I laughed remembering the much mustachioed Madhavan pretending to be Desingu raja.

The book gives a wonderfull perspective on whats historical writing. I am yet to come to the tamil version - I am now reading the Marathi version - he is Jai singh in that. The book is such a delight.
