Publisher's Summary

An audiobook in Tamil language.

History! What could be more boring than memorizing dates and years? How many attempts did Mohammed Ghazni make on India before he finally succeeded in conquering it? Who was the last Moghul? Who built the Jama Masjid?

Rote learning is now history. And history can be fun. Madan's Vandargal Vendrargal is an enjoyable listen as much as it is packed with the facts of history. Examples of Madan's refreshingly different approach to writing history:

  • No kinder hearted king ever lived than Humayun. He would surely have entered the Guinness Book of World Records for compassion had there been one in his time!
  • Babur's eighth wife was a gun! It was love at first sight, and the emperor kept it lovingly by his side.
  • "How could the man who built this mausoleum have been born on earth? Do you need proof that the blueprint for it came from the heavens?" from notes left by Shahjahan on the Taj Mahal.
  • Akbar invited hundreds of sadhus on Sivaratri night and fasted in ritual penance along with them, to make Hindus happy. "Rulers cannot rest or take vacations. Their only duty is to labor constantly for the welfare of their subjects." So said Aurangzeb, whom many historians have labeled a despot.

    Who would not enjoy listening to history so written? It's never too late, even if you missed out during your schooldays. You can make up by lapping up Madan's sugarcoated Moghul history.

      "மதனின் அருமையான படைப்பு"
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      கட்டாயமாக. இந்து இராச்சியமாக இருந்த இந்தியாவில் முஸ்லீம் மன்னர்களான முகலாயர்களின் ஆட்சி ஆச்சர்யமானது. சிலர் அன்பாகவும் சிலர் கொடூரமானவர்களாகவும் இருந்திருப்பது போன்ற விறு விறு தகவல்கள் நிறைந்திருக்கின்றது.


      What was one of the most memorable moments of Vandargal Vendrargal?

      கொடுங்கோலன் ஔரங்கசீப்பை அடித்து அடித்து துரத்திய வீர சிவாஜி.


      What does Charles K bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

      ஏற்கனவே சார்ல்சின் அருமை பெருமையை கி.மு கி.பி எனும் புத்தகத்தில் அறிந்துகொண்டேன். இந்தக் களத்திலும் அடித்து விளாசுகின்றார்.


      If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

      அதெல்லாம் தெரியாது பாஸ்.


      Any additional comments?

      கி.மு கி.பி புத்தகத்தில் நான் குறிப்பிட்டது போல ஆங்கில வார்த்தைகளைச் சரளமாக மதன் கலந்திருப்பது முகம் சுளிக்க வைக்கின்றது. தமிழ் புத்தகத்தில் பேச்சில் வழக்கில் இருந்தாலும் எழுதும் போது ஆங்கிலச் சொற்களைக் கலக்க வேண்டுமா?

      எனக்கென்ன தெரியும் பிற்காலத்தில் நவீன இலக்கியங்களில் ஆங்கிலம் கலந்துதான் இருக்கும் என்று சொல்லுவார்களோ என்னவோ.
