Makes an Indian proud and other more proud!!!!
22 June 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I have become the fan of Mr Woods after watching the series of The Story of India. I guess even an Indian presenter wouldn't have presented the way Mr. Woods have presented it. He has imbibed in himself the factor of Indianness which is very much required to explain something about India in this much detail. I should be right if I say most of us(Indians) ourselves wont be knowing about India as much the show is informative about. The show is almost comprehensive about not only about Indian history but whole of Indian subcontinent.

It rightly starts from the Indus valley through the vedic age etc along with mind-blowing visuals and silver-mouthed Wood's narration and it get better episode by episode. The documentary doesn't hesitate comparing India with other ancient civilizations while revealing the greatness of rich past and advanced society at the very ancient age.

It is very informant for those ignorant about their own past and have turned a blind eye towards their own culture which is very rich, diverse, full of life and colors. So it is a must watch for those who want to know more about India and to those Indians who are ignorant about their own past. Watch it completely to feel proud about your country. Jai Hind!!!
