India with Sanjeev Bhaskar

Bombay Dreams (#101)

Sanjeev's journey begins in Mumbai, India's glamorous financial capital, home to both the country's wealthiest citizens and the largest slums in Asia. Here, he discovers that an entrepreneurial spirit is thriving as strongly within the city's street-trading communities as in the country's millionaire business boardrooms. He also makes a cameo appearance in the country's leading soap opera and does a stint as a beauty contest judge. Next Sanjeev travels South towards India's Silicon Valley and the 21st-century city of Bangalore, where software engineers take care of the world's IT problems, and where India's bright young things head to make their fortunes. Further South, on the stunning backwaters of Kerala, Sanjeev finds that all this progress comes with a price, and he witnesses an exquisite display of the ancient art of Kathakali.
