About Kamla Bhatt:
After a decade working in various IT companies in Silicon Valley, California, Kamla Bhatt turned to her true passion: radio. She started broadcasting on the Internet in July 2005 and became India’s first podcaster with her News About India and Talk News India shows. In March 2006 she launched her new radio show called The Kamla Bhatt Show focused on the Indian diaspora.
Kamla Bhatt has been fascinated for years by how Life, People and Ideas intersect and interact–these are the underlying themes for her show. Her focus on many things Indian is against the backdrop of India Rising - be it Bollywood remixed, IT czars, celebrity chefs, or a renewed national identity. The Indian diaspora, whether it is in the U.S. or in Singapore, is no less engaging, and is just as rich a source for interesting subjects. Having spent a good portion of her life in the U.S., Kamla is just as intrigued by the American experience as by the west’s growing interest in India.
While holding down a day job in her days in the Valley, she regularly contributed to various Indian publications in the U.S. and in India. Her writing has been published by Rediff, India Abroad, Outlook, Silicon India, Business Standard and The Telegraph.
Kamla holds a MA and MPhil degree in International Relations, and is currently working on a book project on the Opium trade between British India and China during the 19th century. She also maintains her own blog and contributes to Global Voices and Desicritics.
Kamla divides her time between Manhattan, New York, and Bangalore, India
