Rich with images of culture and lifestyle, this colorful program offers a glimpse at the many people living in South Asia. The unique heritage of each country is explored, including Pakistan, India, Nepal and Bangladesh. The program follows cultural paths as it traces the beginnings of Hinduism and Buddhism, as well as the introduction of Islam by traders and missionaries. Viewers are also shown how these major faiths have played a large role in the development of South Asia, and how they continue to affect life today. The program illustrates, the gap between rich and poor is still prominent in the region, but there is also a larger middle class than ever before.
