Thanks for a lively, thought provoking and well researched course content. I sincere thanks to the Executive Director Mr. Nick Booker for his enthusiastic, effervescent and commendable presentation of all the episodes, which drive me to complete this course successfully. Thanks are also due to Professor Brian D. Joseph for having prepared the course content and well researched materials for the entire course. I hope this course get a resounding appreciation from rest of the people who undertook the course. Hope many more people will pursue the course in future.

An excellent introduction to India and its relevance to the world around it.

Really good info by an enthusiastic and impressive instructor. You will learn amazing facts.

I enjoyed this course a lot. It’s a very interesting course. It serves well as an introductory course for people (like me) that don’t know much about India. I recommend this course to anyone that wants to learn a little more about India. As one of the world’s oldest civilizations, India is a place that deserves to be studied. In the course you will learn from a great variety of topics like India’s history, culture, ethnic diversity, incredible number of languages, politics and even job/study/internship opportunities for young adults around the world.
