DESIRE TO THE THRONE
This is a new historical series. This is a complete fiction of imaginary characters. Some parts are inspired from a Tamil novel called “Ponniyin Selvan” written by author Kalki. This novel is soon going to get featured as a movie directed by Maniratnam. Only some parts and scenes are inspired from this novel, others are my creativity. This ff will be updated on every Tuesdays and the length of each episode is somewhat short than my previous ff’s. Do read the ff and comment down your thoughts.
