The same, yet so different….

An easy one for the day…

__________ is locally called after Draupadi who disguised herself as the Matsya kingdom queen’s  aid, during exile. The first English investigation of the watersheds of this area was carried out in 1857 by Robert Wight, a botanist. The area was so named by the British due to a perceived absence of noisy Cicadas. Yet another story traces the origin of name to the anglicisation of Draupadi’s name during her above-stated disguise. A third story, refers to the presence there of many Lion-Tailed Macaques. FITB.
