Ibn Battuta's Tryst with Malabar

On February 18, 2018, Priyadarshini Sharma, a writer for The Hindu newspaper in Kochi (Kochin), Kerala State, India, interviewed me about Ibn Battuta's travels, especially his short residence in Malabar, as India's southwestern coastal region was known in the fourteenth century. The article, titled "Ibn Battuta's Tryst with Malabar," was published in The Hindu on February 24. Here is the URL to the article.
