In a groundbreaking initiative, Union Minister Anurag Thakur introduced the trailer of “KTB- Bharat Hain Hum,” a compelling animated series chronicling India’s journey towards independence. Launched by the Information and Broadcasting Ministry’s Central Bureau of Communication and Graphiti Studios, this engaging series spans two seasons, bringing to life tales from the Indian freedom struggle spanning from the 1500s to 1947.
The series comprises 52 episodes, each running for 11 minutes and is hosted by the beloved animated characters Krish, Trish, and Balti boy. Notably, it delves into the forgotten chapters of the freedom movement, shedding light on unsung heroes and heroines whose contributions were often overlooked by Explore traditional education systems.
Minister Thakur emphasized the series’ mission: to educate the youth about these lesser-known yet significant figures while inspiring younger generations with the stories of those who shaped modern India. He revealed that the series, available in multiple languages, including foreign ones, would be broadcast simultaneously on Doordarshan, Netflix, and Amazon Prime, transcending language barriers and sharing these inspiring narratives globally.
Crucially, the series highlights the pivotal role played by women and tribal freedom fighters in the struggle against colonial powers. To ensure maximum outreach, it will be screened for all parliamentarians during the upcoming session.
The monumental effort behind the series was underscored by Munjal Shroff, one of its creators. He revealed that over a thousand individuals had contributed to its making. In a testament to its scale, each episode featured an impressive array of 50 to 100 characters and around 50 different backgrounds, far surpassing the standards of typical animation shows.
Moreover, “KTB- Bharat Hain Hum” will be presented in 12 Indian languages and will be dubbed in several international languages, including French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. The first season is slated for release from October 15, 2023, to January 7, 2024, followed by the second season, scheduled from January 28, 2024, to April 21, 2024.
