Dr. Sanjay Gupta's journey to India to uncover his family's roots

Dr. Sanjay Gupta went on a journey with his family to find their roots in India. He accompanied both of his parents back to their hometowns and found a family history that dates back 40 generations. While in India, Dr. Gupta's daughters joined him in laying new roots for future generations to uncover.

    Thoroughly enjoyed watching Dr. Gupta's family journey to India this morning. It's always inspiring to see how life's challenges ultimately make us stronger. I was warmed by the story of how Dr. Gupta's parents met quite by accident half a world away from where they were born, and how those seeming coincidences set the path for future generations. If only all children were blessed with such wonderfully positive and grounded parents. Thank your for opening up your lives and sharing such personal and endearing experiences.

    Sharmina His mother is sindhi Hindu not pakistani. She was forced by muslims to leave during Partition just like other hindus were forced to leave.. Before 1947 there was no country called pakistan. All that land has always been India Muslims are foreign invaders and their descendants are squatting on that land now. Islam is not an Indian religion.
    IHie father is hindu from India and so he is Indian. And Sanjay Gupta is indian-American

    Well look at that. Sanjay Gupta's mom is Sindhi. She's from a part of the world that is now in Pakistan. I kept watching the first few minutes and thinking "That's not India". I wish they would have mentioned it in the title or opening. I guess saying you're Indian is cooler than saying you're Pakistani.
