About The Authors

D.K. Hari and D.K. Hema Hari are founders of Bharath Gyan, a knowledge initiative to compile and present the knowledge of India, its traditions, its culture, its global ties – in short, its ethos, from an Indian perspective.

The Hari couple have travelled extensively to over 30 countries and visited museums, expositions and other attractions worldwide to understand those civilizations, their culture and knowledge. It was this exposure that motivated this husband –wife duo of management and IT professionals to turn into research collators and conceptualize “Bharath Gyan” as an endeavour to fill the void in the showcasing of the knowledge, practices and culture of the Indian civilization across the millennia.

They collate information on the knowledge in India through the ages and disseminate it for suitable appreciation and application.

Their method to collating this knowledge is purely driven by questioning.

Allowing questioning to lead thought and search, has yielded this collection, which is again presented through questions and answer, using multimedia technology for effective sharing of information and grasp.

With factual contents on 108 different subjects on the state of knowledge in India, its traditions and its sustainable practices compiled over 14 years of dedicated research, the Hari couple are subject matter experts on the overall understanding of India across ages from over 8000 years ago to the present.

They have given over 200 lectures across India and the globe, to wide audience ranging from research community, to educational institutions, to Corporates , social organizations and in various conferences on technology, managements, history, tradition, culture and religion.

Based on their research, they have authored 12 books and produced 3 documentaries as well as many short films that span a wide spectrum of disciplines, such as

• Creation – Srishti Vignana (a book and film on the science of Creation form Indian thought)

• Understanding Shiva (a book and film that explains the Shiva Tattva)

• A trilogy on Historicity of Rama

Historical Rama

Ramayana in Lanka

Ayodhaya – War and Peace

• A trilogy on Historical Krishna

Dating of Krishna

Footprints of Krishna

Facets of Krishna

• You Turn India (on the secret behind the prosperity of India or millennia)

• Telugu Tall – Her Unknown side – Facets of Telugu Culture and prosperity

• 2012 – The Real Story (that shows the connect between India and ancients America)

• Triple Eclipse 2009 (that presents and intriguing side to the phenomenon of 3 eclipse occurring back to back within a month in the decade between 2009 to 2019)

They are active on social media too.


India and Japan are geographically separated by many miles and many seas.

Yet, they have shared a close bond. Not just commercially but in the field of culture, linguistics, spirituality, subtle traditional practices, the religion of Buddhism and many other such areas.

In the last decades, Japan has had a large impact on Indians by way of infusion of modern Japanese technologies into India. To the current generation of youth in India, the impression is that, Japan has given a lot to India.

“Japan has gained more from India across ages than India has done form Japan in recent times.”

These were the words of Naomi Ishii, MD of Toyota in India.

It was his sincere counter over dinner to the common sentiment prevalent amongst Indians about Japan’s contribution to India.

This was a very touching moment – an endorsement given by a generation of Japanese, to a generation of Indians, of their ancestors’ positive interactions, more than a millennium ago.

In this day and age of high modernization in Japan, if India’s influence on Japan is still held in high esteem by the Japanese and also as one that benefitted Japan, then it speaks highly of,

1. The nobility of the Indian ancestors who had created such an impact on the Japanese and

2. The nobility of the present generation of Japenese to acknowledge such an impact even after millennia.

One is not sure how many of the Japanese or the Indians realize this though, For, Buddhism and its values have been internalized so much that they are an integral part of Japan today. This is evident in the calm demeanour with which they have faced some of the world’s worst disasters, both natural and manmade, through times. This has given them the strength to recover with focus and determination.

The Indo relationship, a rapport built over time, has had various touch points over ages, from different perspective.

There are many a works that have been written in the last couple of centuries, on these exchanges across ages. Many associations and centres too have sprung up to trace and further the bond between these 2 lands.

For us at Bharath Gyan, working in the space of the ethos of india, its knowledgebase and its pan global ties through the ages, the occasion of the Inidan PM’s visit to Japan this year, 2014, is an opportunity to present the Indo Japan connect right through times with a focus on the subtler aspects of the commercial account.

Nothing about Indo Japan relationship is superficial. The ties run very deep.

The Indo Japan ties are a good example for how a relationship, over a millennium, acquires different flavours, based on mutual sharing of each other’s strengths, which also various over time.

To remind both Indian and Japanese youth of the strong bond that we have shared over millennia and to strengthen it further for future, by leveraging each other’s strengths in present times, is the objective.
