All the photographs used on the blog are my experimental photography using I phone and I Pad. Hope you enjoy reading the blog.

  2. Good to learn so much about the Emperor Raja Raja Chola..
    I find the history of Chola Emperors quite intriguing. They had been ruling since before the time of the Mauryan Empire and continued for about a Millennium and more.
    I am waiting for the movie on Ponniyin Selvam. Hope it will be a Magnum Opus..!!
