Itihasika our organization, was born out of a simple dream. To create a world class ecosystem on Indian history and make it available to Indian kids and young adults across the world .
And we will do it via - animation movies, comics, pop art and games that target age groups 8 to 18
. This is because things learnt at this impressionable age last a lifetime.
To test the idea we made 2 movies on Shivaji Maharaj and Lachit Borpukan using basic animation. They cumulatively got more than 5 million views on Youtube without spending one rupee on marketing.
This inspired us as people were clearly hungry for this kind of content.
The next step was crowdfunding for an animation movie called 'Navyug ke Dashavataar
'. Its a 2 part animation magnum opus on ten historic characters that contributed to establishing dharma when there appeared to be no hope for Bharat. The ten heroes are from across regions and across centuries of the past millennium. Using their life stories the movie showcases a lot of general Indian history
and its contexts.
Using the same funding we also created a world class website www.itihasika.com
and 10 comic books on the same heroes. All are available for sale on the website.
Our next step is to make a similar movie on 10 women heroes in the last thousand years and comic books on women heroes.
And now we seek your generous donations for the second phase. Its not only extremely time consuming but also very expensive to build this legacy for our next generations. The specifics of where the money will be used for is provided below.
Navyug ke Dashavataar - Part 2 - $5,000
Movie on 10 iconic women - $20,000
Printing comic books - $5,000
Marketing and promotions - $10,000Bharath, with its thousands of years of history is a treasure trove of cultural, social, anecdotal and most importantly spiritual information. We intend to promote true unbiased history which glorifies local heroes and unifies Indians.
