Cringing, craving, bingeing, braving... you always have an opinion on what's hot and what's not in your city and we just love to hear it. Besides, there's no better place to satiate that itch to bitch!
Tipu Sultan, the Tiger of Mysore, is sometimes portrayed as cunning, haughty, hard-hearted and vengeful in our history books. Other historians maintain that Tipu took his stand on the bedrock of humanity, regarding all his subjects as equal citizens to live in peace, harmony and concord. Tipu Sultan has dominated our imagination for over two centuries, as the endless flow of scholarly works, plays and novels about his life and tragic end testifies. What is less known, is that this man who spent most of his life on horseback, maintained a secret record of his dreams. Jagriti presents Padma Bhushan and Jnanpith awardee Girish Karnad’s The Dreams of Tipu Sultan, which examines the inner life of this warrior, rocketry pioneer, political visionary, botanist and dreamer.
