WHY I LOVE INDIA
A love affair going steady since 2007 ….that is when I filmed my first documentary in Rajastan for the World Economic Forum, on the Global education initiative. I was taken hostage the moment I stepped out of the plane.
I think there is no more interesting place in the whole big world. The culture runs so deep and has so many layers, people are so welcoming, the sights are a camerawoman’s dream, challenges make life worth living. The more I study India, its history, its language, its culture, the more I grow fond of it all. There are so many contradictions, so much scope for understanding, and explaining, as a journalist.
“India after Gandhi” by Ramachandra Guha
-Best book I have ever read.
“Shantaram” by Gregory David Robert
-For the dreaming…
“Dreaming in Hindi” by Katherine Russell Rich
A great book about overcoming the difficult moments of the Hindi student.
“India, a history” by John Keay
The pillar for anyone who wants to learn about Indian history.
“India rising” by Oliver Balch
This book makes me jealous: Damn! I could have written this one!
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
