Bridging Worlds: Know India Know Yourself

  • Sharebar

Indians have travelled to distant lands at various stages in history; first as travelers, then as indentured labourers, and finally, as skilled professionals settled in different parts of the world. The Indian diaspora today is spread out all over the world contributing to the global knowledge economy. The diasporic community often separated from their homeland by several generations knows little or nothing about their roots. In an effort to connect the community with their heritage and ancestry, the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs has started the ‘Know India Program’ (KIP). The film covers the program in its 5th year as young overseas Indians spend three weeks traveling to different places in the country, absorbing the Indian culture as more than tourists.
