"It has been great for all of us to work in the
project. This is an effort to document the rich heritage of
our country," G S Chani, who has jointly produced and directed
the series along with Gyandev Singh, said.
Pushpesh Pant, who has played the role of anchor in
the documentary, said, "For me, it is not only a life-time
achievement, but a life-changing one."
"These forts documented in the series tell the stories
of our country and its rich heritage. You can hear the
footsteps of time in all these," historian Kapila Vatsayan,
who formally launched series here, said.
