INDIA THROUGH THE LENS

Friday, August 11, 2017

India has grown so much since its independence; but 70 years later there are still several things we may not know about our country — be it history, culture or food. So, the Mumbai Mix Team lists some interesting shows for you to catch on television

Whatever our text books taught us about our country is far from the complete picture. Reading about national parks is no fun, but watching a wildlife survival battle is definitely more engaging. Watching the rhinos and elephants on screen, for instance, is a lot more exciting than reading a book. And, the same goes for history, food, industry and the fight for independence. Our country is full of surprises, courtesy its rich culture and history. Close to Independence Day, many TV channels are running interesting shows about India, and we’re sure you won’t want to miss them. Here are some you can watch.

All through the month, FOX Life is celebrating the spirit of India with the show Food @ 9 with Gary Mehigan. With chef Sarah Todd, David Rocco and Kiran Jethwa, you can visually feast on the cultural fusion of Indian cuisine as they take you on an exciting food journey.

This documentary series delves into the technological inventions and architectural marvels that the Mughals achieved in their ruling years. They were masters in the arts and crafts, and infused Indian ways with their culture and traditions.
