The amusing tale of Sethu Lakshmibai, and her guidance in building a dynasty was pivotal to the course of history. At SPACES Fest, Manu. S. Pillai will be in conversation with Meena. T. Pillai on matriarchs in the making of Travancore. The urban vision of the matriarchs, their governance and the roles they played in building the infrastructure will be the highlights of the session.
