Overview

Bharath Gyan is a civilizational study initiative to compile and present the knowledge as well as ethos of India, its traditions, culture and global ties, through the ages.

The objective is to bridge old and new worlds by repurposing knowledge from the past, for the present and future, to experience, appreciate and apply. It is an endeavour to bring forth the knowledge from ancient times through the ages, with a special focus on Indian heritage.
