Mumbai : India’s leading Hindi infotainment channel continues to strengthen its position in the infotainment genre through innovative and engaging programming. EPIC Channel is bringing two new special shows – a war documentary ‘Sentinels of the Snow’ by Maj. Gen. G.D. Bakshi and a glimpse into the lives of the people living around the ghats of Varanasi in ‘Ghat Ghat Ka Pani’.

Based on tremendous response from viewers on the war documentaries by Maj. Gen. G. D. Bakshi, EPIC is all set to release yet another thrilling documentary - “Sentinels of The Snow: The Battle of Rezang La”.  An inspiring saga of heroism and valour, it recreates the Battle at Rezang La in the Chushul district of Ladakh during the 1962 Sino-Indian War. Maj. Gen. Bakshi recounts the last stand of the brave as the army prepared itself for an attack with just 123 soldiers. Major Shaitan Singh of 13 Kumaon Regiment gallantly fought wave after wave of Chinese soldiers, and was martyred with over 100 comrades in their endeavor to push back the Chinese. An inspiring tale narrated by Maj. Gen. Bakshi in his trademark style, Sentinels of the Snow is the sixth in the series of documentaries on India’s most famous battles, five of which have been previously aired on EPIC.

Ghat Ghat Ka Pani narrates the story of the many ghats on the banks of the Ganga in the eternal pilgrimage city - Varanasi. Amongst the temple bells and holy chants are stories that glimpse into the lives of the common man of Varanasi who live on the banks of the ever flowing river. Ghat Ghat Ka Pani explores life and its countless shades along the holy Ganges where dreams are fulfilled and broken, but life, like the river, carries on.

Akul Tripathi, Content and Programming head, EPIC Channel said, “EPIC Specials are a continuing testament that reinforce EPIC’s commitment to showcasing India and India centric content in the trademark EPIC style which lays great emphasis on production quality and research. We are enthusiastic to create fascinating shows that are rich in culture, and that speak to our audiences about India’s diversity. EPIC Specials will only get more special with every passing year as and we have an exciting line-up that will continue into the new year.”

 Tune in to EPIC Channel on 15th December to watch ‘Sentinel of the Snow’ and on 29th December to watch ‘Ghat Ghat Ka Pani’ at 3pm, 5pm, 7pm and 9pm.
