The presentation was organised by Disha-Doordarshan Staff club on 05.07.2017 at their studio at Thrissur. Aparna gives an overview of the history of humankind in general, and Sapiens in particular. The storyteller takes the audience through different stages of human behavioural changes, from cognitive revolution to scientific revolution. She draws parallels between human history and the life of Kautilya, thereby reflecting on the interesting tale of human survival.
The talk is heavily inspired by
a.Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari
b.Guns, germs and steel by Jared Diamond
c.Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History
