Echoes is a history podcast like no other. It's by Indians, about Indians, for Indians: A 700-year journey from the invasion of Alexander to the Gupta Empire, from the sublime Greek art of Gandhara to the pearl-white Buddhist stupas of Andhra to the thriving port cities of the Tamil land. Along the way, monks debate, queens boast, and armies roar. In Echoes, the past comes back to life - noisy, breathing, as thriving as the Indian subcontinent is today. Each week, host Anirudh Kanisetti takes you through a new aspect of the wonder that was ancient India. From politics to philosophy, culture to religion, hear the history of this land unfold every Monday, starting 19th November.
