The Episode 2 of Echoes of India brings us to the 8th century BCE, where we will see the origins of many of the ideas that shape India today. How did some of the oldest systematic ideas about the universe and reality, the concepts of karma, atman, and rebirth originate? Who were the people who came up with them, and why?
Join us as we meet the ancient Indian theologians Gargi Vachaknavi and Yajnavalkya - and a rather grumpy author of the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, who has a bone to pick with Anirudh..
