This wonderful talk by Shri Saran Shanmugham is about the great Chola kingdom, that ruled India for over 1000 years and their influence in almost all of the South East countries. This entire region retains the Indic legacy in some form or another. The scholars have established the Indian connection with the South East Asian countries since ancient times & a peaceful spread of Indian culture . Many might think that the country which is farthest away from India in terms of its Indic connection is the Philippines due to its predominantly Catholic population today. But they would not know of a legacy, that too of the illustrious Chola dynasty of South India connecting Philippines to India. A wonderful description and a revelation in itself.
