On 4th May 1799, the British forces defeated the famed king of Mysore in a battle, largely owing to the king's chief minister betraying him. About 8500 kms away, the battle finds a reference in a 200 ft talk Obleisk in Phoenix Park, in Dublin Ireland. But is that the only legacy India has left in Ireland, of a war an Indian ruler lost to the British? This week, in the twelfth episode of the series Ireland Untravelled, we discover the legacy of India, in the form of one of its most outstanding polymaths. Tune in, and discover the strange colliding worlds of two national poets, the unlikely connection between them and what it means to be a nationalist today.
