Playwright Girish Karnad explores the influence of Indian poem the Bhagavad Gita, known as the 'Bible of Hinduism' and hailed as a guiding force behind the subcontinent's history for the past 3,000 years. Interpreted in many ways, the words of wisdom within have inspired people across the world, from Mahatma Gandhi to the Beatles. The programme includes footage of life in modern India and dramatic reconstructions of the great battles which inspired the opening lines of the poem.
