A pad in Thillasthanam . . .

Time for change. Skip a hotel room in Thanjavur and stay in the village of Thillasthanam, some 2 kms from Thiruvaiyaru. Our 
host here is Prof. Kausalya, retired Head of College of Music here and a scholar and now promoter of the Marabu Foundation.

Kausalya has rented a vintage house in this quiet agraharam, just off the riverside to run Marabu's activities.

She also rents a few rooms to those who wish to upgrade their music/dance skills in these quiet environs.

It is back to the old times; bathe around the well and in the open, sleep on the floor or on an old bed, and let the small fan whir you to sleep.
