Two systems of writing time developed independently: One in Kashmir, and the other in Kerala. But they developed in completely different cultural milieus. And its all connected to the parking lot of Maulana Azad Medical college in Delhi. This week, in the second episode of The Kashmir Diaries, we delve into the art of Persian and Sanskrit chronograms, which have been used for centuries for everything from poetry to statecraft to science. Tune in, and explore the beauty of these chronograms, and how they provide us hope in the preservation of our intangible cultural heritage.

    Zbayul: The Invisible Village of Ladakh

    10:56

    "In 1948, as India was fighting Pakistan in Kashmir, the Pakistani army reached this village but bypassed it completely. Simply because hidden behind a gorge, with just one access point, the village was invisible to them. Legend has it that when the army of a neighbouring kingdom tried to invade the village, they were greeted with huge boulders falling off the gorge, which forced the army to retreat. This week, in the ninth episode of Kashmir diaries, we travel to Ladakh and witness one of the most interesting experiments in local heritage conservation, housed in a 500-year-old home.Special thanks to Antara Chatterjee from Little Local for providing detailed information about Zbayul and answering queries.

    Sheshnag, Deadly Hikes and A Thousand Year Old Tradition

    9:10

    In the narrative of Kashmir, what often lies forgotten is the origin story. What could a Naga king who ruled thousands of years ago, have in common with a humble Gujjar-Bakrwal man, and what did they have to do with the origin of Kashmir? This week, in the eighth episode of Kashmir Diaries, Utsav narrates the story of a deadly hike at Sheshnag lake, which ended in a rather peculiar way. Tune in, to understand the thousand year old tradition which connected the Naga King and the Gujjar-Bakrwal man, and what lessons it holds for us as travellers today.Check out the other episodes of "The Kashmir Diaries"Kashmiris, Hangul and the Manual of Life:- https://ivm.today/3o0jE1GSrinagar, Ancient Carvings and Supernovas:- https://ivm.today/3hECuatKargil, Hundarman and the Museum of Memories:- https://ivm.today/2Vx8ANGYou can check previous episodes of 'Podcasts from Nowhere' on IVM Podcasts websitehttps://ivm.today/3xuayw9You can reach out to our host Utsav on Instagram: @whywetravel42(https://www.instagram.com/whywetravel42)You can listen to this show and other awesome shows on the IVM Podcasts app on Android: https://ivm.today/android or iOS: https://ivm.today/ios, or any other podcast app.

    The Vanishing Art of Kashmiri Carpet Weaving

    15:42

    What started out 600 years ago in Persia (present day Iran) thrived to become the crown jewel of the Kashmiri arts. However, the art of Kashmiri carpet weaving is now vanishing, on the brink of extinction. This week, in the seventh episode of Kashmir Diaries, we meet Rafiq Ahmed Shah, a 73 year old, fourth generation artist who is fighting to keep this art alive, and is probably the last patron of the art in all of India. Tune in, for an intimate conversation with Rafiq, and how the decline of Kashmiri carpet weaving is emblematic of the languishing state of the arts in India.Check out the other episodes of "The Kashmir Diaries"Kashmiris, Hangul and the Manual of Life:- https://ivm.today/3o0jE1GSrinagar, Ancient Carvings and Supernovas:- https://ivm.today/3hECuatKargil, Hundarman and the Museum of Memories:- https://ivm.today/2Vx8ANGYou can check previous episodes of 'Podcasts from Nowhere' on IVM Podcasts website https://ivm.today/3xuayw9You can reach out to our host Utsav on Instagram: @whywetravel42(https://www.instagram.com/whywetravel42)You can listen to this show and other awesome shows on the IVM Podcasts app on Android: https://ivm.today/android or iOS: https://ivm.today/ios, or any other podcast app.

    Kashmiris, Hangul and the Manual of Life

    9:41

    About 100,000 years ago, a mutation in a family of deers gave rise to 3 distinct sub-species which came to be known by the geographical regions they travelled to - Bukhara in Uzbekistan, Xinjiang in China and Kashmir in India. But what does that deer have to do with the Kashmiri people? This week, in the sixth episode of Kashmir Diaries, I bring to you the story of the Hangul, the Kashmir Red Deer, which is also the state animal. This critically endangered species, endemic to Kashmir has strange parallels to the Kashmiri people themselves. Tune in, and discover how the story of the Hangul and Kashmiris are intertwined, and how they gives us the manual of life.Check out the other episodes on Beneath the Veneer: JordanRed Sea, Tintin, and Sunken Tanks:- https://ivm.today/3du4fAEJordan, Civilization, and Buri Nazar! :- https://ivm.today/3hp1qDiAmman, Ashok Chakra and Swastik :- https://ivm.today/3wI7paoYou can check previous episodes of Dark Tourism on IVM Podcasts website https://ivm.today/3xuayw9You can reach out to our host Utsav on Instagram: @whywetravel42(https://www.instagram.com/whywetravel42)You can listen to this show and other awesome shows on the IVM Podcasts app on Android: https://ivm.today/android or iOS: https://ivm.today/ios, or any other podcast app.

    Srinagar, Ancient Carvings and Supernovas

    10:18

    In 1960, the Indian Archeaologist T N Khazanchi, in a painstaking excavation spanning 11 years, discovered proof of 4 distinct human cultures beginning from the Aceramic Neolithic to the Historical era, which meant that the Kashmir Valley had been inhabited for at least 11,000 years. In the excavation, they also found a stone carving, which did not merit enough attention. This week, in the fifth episode of The Kashmir Diaries, I take you to Burzahom, the site of the excavation to tell you the story of how, just 3 years ago, the rock carving led to a stunning scientific discovery. Tune in, and uncover the story of this discovery which was hiding in plain sight, and what it teaches us about the respecting ancient knowledge systems and wisdom.Check out the other episodes on Beneath the Veneer: JordanRed Sea, Tintin, and Sunken Tanks:- https://ivm.today/3du4fAEJordan, Civilization, and Buri Nazar! :- https://ivm.today/3hp1qDiAmman, Ashok Chakra and Swastik :- https://ivm.today/3wI7paoYou can check previous episodes of Dark Tourism on IVM Podcasts website https://ivm.today/3xuayw9You can reach out to our host Utsav on Instagram: @whywetravel42(https://www.instagram.com/whywetravel42)You can listen to this show and other awesome shows on the IVM Podcasts app on Android: https://ivm.today/android or iOS: https://ivm.today/ios, or any other podcast app.

    8:34

    They form 12% of the population of J & K, and yet their story is missing from the larger discourse of Kashmir.
