BBC Radio 4 are currently running a series exploring India through 50 great personalities. The first in the series details the life of the Buddha and can be listened to for free on the Radio 4 website.
Stay tuned to hear about other impressive names, some of them like Kautilya and Aryabhata not very well known by the general British public. As some of the greatest minds in our world history they definately deserve the coverage.
The next in the series tomorrow is Panini: Catching the Ocean in a Cow’s Hoofprint.
