Next winter finally we fervently hope to be back on schedule (after the
long COVID break) with the CTWS at the centre of the EFEO in Pondichery.
This 21st seminar will last for two weeks (13th to 24th February), with
the main text in a double session in the mornings and with various
sessions to choose from in the afternoons.
The first week will be dedicated to yet another chapter of the
Cilappatikāram, namely canto XVII, the Āycciyar Kuravai, a series of
devotional songs to Kṛṣṇa, early testimonies to his worship in South India.
The second week we will delve into the realm of didactic poetry for the
first time in all these years, looking at the Paḻamoḻi, one of the more

option. Everybody with at least a basic knowledge of classical Tamil is

a tourist visa.
