Indian imprints: Taking India to Indians
Holding view that history has got nothing to do with present is a very narrow perception of our being. It’s important for any race to know accomplishments of its ancestors. To teach common man Indian glory and its greatness, an effort has been made.
DID YOU know that the king of Thailand recites the thiruppavai (30 verses in tamil written by Aandaal in praise of god Thirumal, an incarnation of Krishna) on all important occasions?

Did you know that the largest Vishnu temple in the world is at Cambodia?

Did you know that Ramayana is enacted everyday in Indonesia?
 
Well, these are just a few examples of the spread of Indian culture on South East Asia revealed by a documentary serial ‘Indian imprints’.

The documentary, filmed by Krishnaswamy Associates, promises to be an eye-opener of sorts for all those viewing it.

It deals with the more than 100 ancient temples and monuments in Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam, which are resplendent with the characteristic Indian architecture.

Starting from April 6, the serial is being aired on every Sunday at 1.30 pm on DD-India. The serial showcases the extent to which Hinduism, Buddhism and other concepts of architecture, aesthetics, dance and mythology have spread to several Asian countries.

The unique mode of presentation deserves a special mention in addition to the quality of the content and other technical standards met.

Krishnaswamy – who has written, narrated, edited and directed the film – said, “History is mostly written by conquerors, and thus, what we learn may be false. It is important for any race to know the accomplishments of its ancestors. This is one such effort to teach the common man the glory and greatness of India.”

Krishnaswamy, a recipient of several prestigious awards, further revealed that the 18-episode serial would be re-telecast on ‘DD National’ channel after a few weeks and dubbed in regional languages.
