Curious about his identity as a Tamil (speaking) Muslim in the southern state of Tamil Nadu in India, Anwar sets off on a journey of discovery of an untold history. A history that goes back to the pre Islamic maritime spice trade that Tamil country had with West Asia and the evolution of the Tamil Muslim community with a unique kinship between Muslims and the fellow Tamils. Shifting through archaeological, epigraphic, literary, architectural and other cultural evidences with the help of scholars across Tamil Nadu and Kerala, Anwar weaves in a rich history and finally comes to terms with the multiple identities of being a Tamil, a Muslim and an Indian, in short ‘all’ as the Tamil word Yaadhum means in English. Duration: 52 mins.
