At land’s end: Confluence of three oceans at the Cape Comerin. Ancient Kanyakomari or cape of the lady oracle later Sanskritized as Kanyakumari. As Kanya and Kumari are the same it is an absurd tautology that exposes the redundancy and epistemological violence of Brahmanical appropriation of south Indian place names. Bye from the Cape!
