History is so much more than what you learn in class! Everything around us is connected to our past. Even the lives we live are built on those of our ancestors.
It is with a view to demystifying history that Amar Chitra Katha, a pioneer of storytelling through illustrations, presents India: A History Through the Ages. This series brings together some of Amar Chitra Katha’s greatest stories and art to reconstruct Indian history—from the Harappan Civilisation and the Vedic Age to the rise of Buddhism and Jainism, and from the greatest dynasties to rule India— including the Mauryas, Guptas, sultanates and Mughals—to the British rule in India.
Meet Varun, Ritu and their grandmother, a powerhouse of information, as they embark on their second adventure. Dadi’s storytelling transports the children to the Iron Age in India. From agriculture, economics, politics, social structures and even faith, change touched every aspect of life for the people of the lands that now make up India. The siblings get to know about the people who brought about these changes—the reformers, kings and those who lived through that age. They also learn more about the janas, mahajanapadas and the rise of Buddhism and Jainism.
Strap on! This is the journey of a lifetime.
