When people think of the Deccan, they think Shivaji vs Mughals. But the history of the Deccan is far richer than that — and far racier. It’s full of lust and laughter, murder and madness, sex and senselessness. Historian Manu S Pillai joins Amit Varma in episode 98 of The Seen and the Unseen to tell that fascinating story.
