Last Sunday, in the newspaper The Hindu, in the supplement, Magazine, I read an article about how music, dance and drama were so entwined with our culture. This article, was written by heritage enthusiast & writer Pradeep Chakravarthy. Here is the article. http://www.thehindu.com/arts/history-and-culture/article1464511.ece.
As my mom read this article, she came across this line in the 4th para which tells about the sandstone bas reliefs in the Thanthondreeswara Siva Temple in Kanchipuram built by the Pallavas. As soon as she read this, she hunted in our pile of photographs and brought out these 2 pics. These 2 are exactly the very bas reliefs that the author of the article was talking about.
So what's so special about these pics. Surprise - Its actually ME in these pics!!! Well, I was around two and a half years old when I had been there with mom and dad, complete with a reference book in hand. As you may expect, I have absolutely no remembrances of this temple to write a travelogue about it. However, I hope to venture to the whole set of Kanchipuram temples sometime in near future and I'll come back with a travelogue about it!!!
