About the Show

The Indo-Aryans’ language played a pivotal role in shaping modern India, giving rise to languages like Sanskrit, Hindi, and other Non-Dravidian languages spoken in the country today.

In this intriguing episode, Chief Explorer Rajan Nazran engages in a captivating conversation with Alex Beeching, the content creator of the Global Indian Series. The focus is on the significant Indo-Aryan migrations during the second millennium B.C., where vast numbers of people migrated from Central Asia, sweeping into Iran and Northern India.

The episode touches on various aspects of this historical migration, shedding light on their Gods, such as Shiva and Indra, whose beliefs laid the foundations of Classical Hinduism and Zoroastrianism. Interestingly, the migration also led to the assimilation of their culture with that of the indigenous people, giving rise to new variations, as seen in the plethora of Hindu Gods and the origin of the Caste System in India.

The conversation uncovers hidden aspects of history that have long remained obscured, revealing the influences of these ancient migrations on contemporary India. From the diverse pantheon of Hindu Gods to the enduring impact of the Caste System, these long-dead people continue to shape the nation’s cultural and social fabric.
