India is a country like no other.
1.3 billion people speaking over 121 languages, 3.2 lakh square kilometers encompassing mighty rivers, plains, plateaus, coasts, deserts, and mountains. A democracy with over 2800 political parties, led by firebrand leaders with either a reverential national appeal or clout in smaller localities. This is a country that has given birth to mighty icons: Sachin Tendulkar, Lata Mangeshkar, Homi Bhabha, and the Tatas. Each with their journey, sculpting modern India as we know it.
India is truly a land of stories. As we complete 75 years of Independence, we bring you a small slice of these tales, these legends, these lores, and some myths.
Let us embark on this incredible journey together every Monday and Thursday, traveling over 75 years, through 75 stories, with Ayaz Memon, only on the IVM Podcast network.
