For those old enough to remember this series on Doordarshan, I khojed up videos of Bharat Ek Khoj on YouTube. For the uninitiated, Bharat Ek Khoj (translated “Discovery of India”) is a television series from 1988 based on Nehru’s book Discovery of India.

My memories of the series are inchoate except for the tune in its title track. Two episodes watched so far and I can say with confidence that I would not have comprehended the philosophical inquiry or appreciated the culture dose of classical music and archaeology footage back in 1988. If there was a cartoon network in 1988, the 1988-me would have most likely changed the channel. Certain things take time to appreciate, and Bharat Ek Khoj is one such.

  • I realize that I have not been blogging for some time now. I cannot think of any good reason. Perhaps inertia. Sometimes inaction is hard to explain.
  • I realize the absence of posts is unfair to the few and the faithful that follow this blog. My sincere apologies, cher amis!
  • A couple of days back, realization dawned on me that over the past several months, I have not just stopped blogging, but also stopped following other blogs, surfing up information on the web – in short, I ceased to be the information junkie that I once thought myself to be. It’s like when the phone goes dead for several days – for a while the void feels good, but at some point it gets to you.
  • Now that this post is cast, I shall proceed to reclaim my digital life, and share the musings and findings.

Rock on!
