This particular session combined (Hindu) history too to Dharma part. But will give you quite a bit of insight into how Sikhs in Punjab, Dynasties of Bengal and Temples of Nepal have historical link to South India. Very few would ever know that one of the first five Sikhs ever (Khalsa's Punj Pyares) was a Kannadiga!

More interesting topic next time. Watch out for Tuesday and Friday around 6 PM India time on Twitter for this quiz, with a tag #DharmaQuiz .
