"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.

    The Improbable Impact Of Nature On 2000 Languages

    10:27

    Why does the hill district of Shimla, home to a mere 8 lakh people, have at least 10-15 different languages? Why does Indonesia have 250 languages, and the strangest of them all - Papua New Guinea, an island nation, to this very day, has over one thousand spoken languages? Why did these rather disparate places acquire such a high density of languages, despite having relatively smaller populations. This week, in the sixth episode of India’s Linguistic Heritage, we travel far and wide and uncover a fascinating link from the natural world, which has shaped more than 2000 languages world over. Tune in, and discover the lessons it holds for us in travel, and in life.

    Breast Tax, Brahmins And The Bizarre Origins Of Modern Malayalam

    10:27

    In the early 19th century, the Maharaja of Travancore levied an absolutely bizzare tax: Any woman who had come of age and had breasts had to pay a breast tax, and bare her breasts to anyone who was of a higher caste to them. This was one amongst the hundreds of taxes the lower castes had to endure, which put them in a cycle of perpetual debt and poverty. And then came a revolt which led the Maharaja to revoke the tax. This week, in the fifth episode of India's Linguistic Heritage, we explore the bizzare story of the origins of modern Malayalam, which has everything from a breast tax to a religious power struggle. Tune in and discover, what this story means for us as travellers, everytime we encounter a new culture.

    The Hidden Injustice In India's Languages

    9:36

    In 2018, a research study by the University of Michigan and World Bank found that women who are native speakers of certain kind of languages have a lower labour force participation rate and lower educational attainment. How did our Indian languages fare? This week, in the fifth episode of the series, India's Linguistic Heritage, we uncover the hidden injustice perpetrated by our languages on women right from the Rig Vedic times to even today. The linguistic journey takes us across swathes of North and Western India, though the story remains the same. Tune in, and discover the roots of this injustice, and how it will shape the way we travel and interact with people.

    Partitions Unknown: Hindi, Urdu and the Umbilical Cord

    10:29

    "In 12th century Delhi, a new language began to emerge, which was initially known as Dehlavi. Parallelly, the political landscape of India changed, with the establishment of the Delhi Sultanate and the arrival of the Mughals. With them came Persian, and quickly established itself as the language of power. Over time, a new language emerged, a combination of Dehlavi and Persian. But the arrival of the British changed everything, and through a maze of social, religious and political factors, the two languages started to grow apart. This week, in the third episode of the series, India's Linguistic Heritage, discover the story of the Partition which went unnoticed; that between Hindi and Urdu, and why separating these two any further would be like cutting the Umbilical cord.Special thanks to Izer, who had rendered a few lines of a popular song for this episode, but it could not be released owing to copyright challenges.

    Reclaiming India's Linguistic Heritage: 300 Ramayanas?

    13:09

    "In 2008, a quasi political organisation asked for the removal of an academic paper from the syllabus of Delhi University. They eventually succeeded in 2011. But what was in that paper that had 'hurt' sentiments? This week, in the second episode of India's linguistic heritage, and on the occasion of Diwali, we dive into a simple question: How many Ramayans? Three hundred or Three thousand? Which is the original Ramayan? Tune in, and discover the mind boggling universe of Ramayans, spread across languages and geographies, and what they tell us about 'culture'.Special thanks goes out to Swastica K, who graciously sang the Sanskrit Shloka you will hear in this episode.

    The Hidden Story Of Sanskrit, And The North - South Divide

    11:05

    In the summer of 1420, following a strange series of events, the migration of a community of people started from a border town between Tamil Nadu and Kerala, to a village in Karnataka. The village eventually came to have a unique claim to fame: It became known as India's Sanskrit village, where every resident spoke Sanskrit. And yet, lesser known is the story of another language that is spoken there. This week, starting a new series, India's linguistic heritage, we dive into the hidden story of Sanskrit, the origin of us Indians and what it tells us about race and languages. Tune in, and discover, how using a combination of genetics and linguistics, the pointlessness of India's North South divide.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/2Vx8ANGShahtoosh: The Wild Story of the World's Most Expensive and Illegal Fabric: https://ivm.today/3E22Z2sYou 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.

    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.
