Ep. 92: अश्वशास्त्र. The Story of the Horse in India.

The horse has been so central to human civilisation that the history of this majestic animal alone reveals a lot about our own past. So in this episode, Yashaswini Chandra, author of the new book The Tale of the Horse: A History of India on Horseback gives a masterclass on the history of horses in India.

घोडा – इस जानवर का भारतीय संस्कृति से गहरा नाता रहा है | घोड़ों का उल्लेख हमारी पौराणिक कथाओं में, इतिहास में, कला-साहित्य में, मुहावरों में, और बॉलीवुड में भी मिलता है | तो इस एपिसोड में इतिहासकार और घुड़सवार यशस्विनी चंद्र भारत में घोड़ों के उपयोग, व्यापार, और इंसानी लगाव की कहानी बयाँ कर रही है |
