last night's show - in the first episode, the origins of "non-violence" as a philosophy from the times of Chandragupta Maurya was discussed in detail!! Buddhism's sources/origins were explored as well

the interesting part was - the whole narration was punctuated with references to actual archaeological findings/evidences to support the same!
