The Ivory Throne

First time author and columnist Manu S Pillai in conversation with Ganesh V Shivaswamy, former Honorary Secretary of the Foundation. The Ivory Throne is a book that tells the story of the tumultuous saga of Sethu Lakshmi Bayi, the last queen of the House of Travancore. The core of their conversation was Travancore, the influence of Raja Ravi Varma in the politics of the State, the role of the Padmanabha-dasas and sevinis and much more. This is probably a book you can judge by its cover!
