Chettiars: The History of A People by MV Subbiah

Eminent industrialist and the former Executive Chairman, Murugappa Group, MV Subbiah was the consummate host during our visit to Chettinad. Besides giving us a private tour of his stunning mansion, he also treated us to a very personalised history of his community, the Nagarathar or Nattukkottai Chettiars.He was in conversation with Sarmaya founder, Paul Abraham.

This informal edition of Sarmaya Talks was held at The Bangala, Karaikudi for a small audience of our Art of Travel guests in October 2018.
