India was once regarded as an almost mythical land; a land of untold riches, of the Taj Mahal and the tiger and in some ways, it still is. But over the past 60 years, India has changed more rapidly than any other nation on the planet. Behind the Bollywood kitsch and the lurid colors, India is now a country coming of age. Today, the worlds finest software engineers live alongside abject poverty, and state-of-the-art call centers nestle in among the shanty towns and crumbling temples.
Born and raised in Britain but with an Indian heritage, Sanjeev Bhaskar is in a unique position to bring this extraordinary country to life for a 21st-century audience as he gets under the skin of the worlds latest superpower, a country of chaos and contradictions.
"India With Sanjeev Bhaskar" airs exclusively on the WORLD Channel (AETN-3) on four consecutive Mondays, beginning September 19 at 7 p.m.
