• Somanatha: Oru Charithra Sambhavathinte Anekaswarangal

Somanatha: Oru Charithra Sambhavathinte Anekaswarangal is the Malayalam version of Romila Thapar's classic book Somanatha: The Many Voices Of A History. It is an attempt to place each narrative on the history of Somanatha in context, also suggests a different history from the one that has been projected through the last two centuries. Thaper writes: "IN 1026, Mahmud of Ghazni raided the temple of Somanatha, plundered its wealth and broke the idol. The received opinion is that this event marked a crystallizing of attitudes, both of the plundered and the plunderers, and these remained antagonistic to each other from that moment on. I decided to explore the aftermath of this event to track what crystallized if it did, how the event was recorded, and whether the perception of the event changed. Of interest to me also was the historiography of these narratives through the representation of this and other events, as well as the later construction of what were thought to be the memories of the event."
