A German Jew fleeing Nazi Germany. A temple buried and lost to the vagaries of time. A steamboat journey on the Mediterranean sea. This week, in the sixth episode of Exploring your backyard, we visit Malleshwaram, and how unlikely events and forces came together to establish this suburb. And how the city became home to one of India's foremost intellectuals, who went on to win the Nobel Prize. Tune in, to understand how these disparate events are connected, and the important lesson Malleswaram holds for us, as we look to preserve our heritage in a rapidly changing world.
