“Who were the Harappans? Did the ‘Aryans’ migrate to India? When did the caste system begin?”

On day 12 of the #ReadInstead litfest, we bring you a masterclass by author Tony Joseph. He was awarded the Shakti Bhatt First Book Prize 2019 for his book Early Indians: The Story of Our Ancestors and Where We Came From.

You can read an excerpt from his book here.


The #ReadInstead campaign was set up in response to the lockdown people are living through because of the coronavirus.
