दशकुमारचरितम् - तमिळ्-भाषया
Dashakumaracharitam is one of the most popular Gadyakavyas of Sanskrit, authored by the great poet Dandin. It is an akhyayika type of prose, with a purely imaginary plot, narrated in an extraordinarily engaging manner by the poet. As the name suggests, it involves the adventures of ten young men, led by the prince Rajavahana. In these video lectures, Smt. Visalakshi Sankaran brings out the beauty of prose in easy Tamil, creating a simple path through the dense gadyas.
