Why do we speak so many languages that belong to entirely different language families? Why are these languages spread as they are? How are we related to the people who built the Harappan Civilization, the largest civilization of its time by far? What accounts for our striking commonalities and our equally noticeable differences? When and why did the caste system fall into place? Based on what we know about ourselves, what kind of Republic should we have? The answers to all of these questions lie in the history of migrations over thousands of years: the migrations that shaped us as as we are today.
Tony Joseph shall talk about all this, and more.
