Hi Readers,

When I started reading history many years ago, I realised that what we learnt in school was so inadequate to understand the contemporary world and the past in a holistic way. And then I stumbled upon the fascinating history of the Silk Route, the fabulous cities that defined it, the traders that came there from distant lands and the unique culture that arose out of this intermingling. Over the years, I have internalised many interesting facts and stories that you may find interesting.

Cheers !
