About the Podcast

Ithihasa India History Podcast
An Indic history podcast that explores different eras and periods of the vast expanse of India's unique history.
Welcome to Ithihasa, an Indic History Podcast that explores India’s past. I will take you back in time to examine what I think has either been overlooked or misunderstood.

I want to nudge People and make them appreciate our past. Want them to be surprised by the fact that the world today isn't much different from the past. And to explore it in a way that hopefully enlightens us.

This is my humble attempt to make it easier for you, to learn India's past in small yet manageable chunks and come out of it with a basic understanding that will enable you to form a coherent opinion when confronted with conflicting narratives.

India's past is littered with gracious amounts of intrigue, drama, tragedy and glory. I will get my hands dirty for you, by digging through the sands of time. And together we shall unearth and look at the fascinating fossils of India’s rich, painful and glorious past.

This podcast will unfold in seasons. Each season will go in depth into different periods of India's history. We will kickoff the show with the first season on the mighty Vijayanagara Empire and follow it up other exciting eras and empires that have lasting impact on the India we know today.

Understand how India interacted with rest of the world in our ancient past, how warfare evolved on the subcontinent, how its culture spread & how it infused outside influence.

We will go where the history books in school and TRP driven News outlets rarely go. And in the process get in touch with our own civilizational roots and identity. Hopefully we shall discover what it truly means to be an Indian.

About your host

Profile picture for Narendra Vikram

Narendra Vikram

An Indian, who happens to be a Techie and a self taught history student. I love exploring geopolitics, world history, rise & fall of civilizations.

Over years, I have enjoyed learning about our past and realized that Humanity as such has a very volatile memory. One of the reasons why we as species keep making the same mistakes over last few thousand years.

The same wars are being fought with new twists and we keep digging at times a hole for ourselves in the same way as our ancestors did.

Why is it so difficult to remember the past? Or is it that we don't pay enough attention to it as it doesn't help pay our bills and serves of no utilitarian purpose?

Whatever the reasons, the past doesn't seem to forget us and keeps haunting many cultures, societies and nations even today.

This aspect fascinates me and this is an humble attempt to just share what I learnt and if needed re-learn it.
