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.
