Kachagan, one of the central figures in the Cholan court, works in the shadows. He makes things happen, yet takes no credit for his achievements; does not wish history to remember him; does not wish to be even a footnote in the annals of history. Let’s meet this enigmatic and dangerous man.


I can already see the many shortcomings of these video productions. One example: the voice-over can be much better, as it lacks the emotion and nuances to bring the narrative alive. It is also difficult to reproduce images depicting the people and places of the time. These will improve with the machine learning improvements of the AI platforms. Meanwhile, thank you for bearing with me.



  1. Hi Eric,

    Sometimes when people serve an intelligent leader, whether good or evil, they start to think they are equally good if not better. The surprise is when they realise too late who calls the shot.

    Hope you have a good week ahead.

    1. Hi Windy,
      I suppose you refer to Kachagan and his spy, Yettan. Yes, no one suspects the hidden ruthlessness that drive the former – not even Yettan, who has been his master’s long-serving spy.
      You have a great week, too,
      Eric 🙂

  2. the video characters look morning like middle eastern characters, the cities like “game of thrones” locales, the cholas were staunch shaivites – at least the video depiction should be to character and as relevant to the times – my thoughts

    1. Hi Anil,
      You are quite right. As you can see from earlier videos, some characters depict Cheras, Cholas, Pandyas (South Indians); yet some do not – no matter how many iterations one makes. These are AI generated images and relies on machine learning. There are simply not enough data/samples on South Indian people/images – unlike western, middle eastern, and orientals, which are more common.
      As time goes on these will improve and we’ll get better images that mirror the prompts. Until then, we’ll just have to do with what we can generate.
      FYI, as recently as a few months ago, it will be a miracle of sorts to get images with 2 hands, 5 fingers, and 5 toes – because quite often, we get people with odd numbers of limbs and appendages. LOL. It has gotten better now – though not perfect. The AI generation is improving daily, considering these came on-line less than a year ago. It is fascinating technology and is going through its shakes and rattles.
      All good wishes,

I like to hear your thoughts
