Been a long time since I had an energising debate. The mother of all discussions that never lets the pulse down... Kadal Pura or Ponniyin Selvan. Had a great time discussing both the classics in all their exhaustive details. Which is better? Kalki's evocative description or Shandilyan's flair for research and depiction? Kalki's political intrigues or Shandilyan's Naval descriptions? Never ceases to appeal!
