When a History student bridges gaps left by WhatsApp University | Eshan Sharma | Founder, Karwaan Heritage
About this Podcast:
This week on the MoodyMo Awaaz Podcast, Mohua Chinappa talks to Eshan Sharma about growing up in Kanpur, how his grandfather read stories to him, how we think we ‘know’ our history, boring history lectures in classrooms and, also how Islamic architecture is actually a misnomer!
About the guest
