Sandip Roy's Dispatches from Kolkata
Sandip Roy, former host of Your Call and New America Now, is back on KALW, bringing you a little bit of the story of the new India every week – a letter home from his other home.
A lot has been written about the changing India, says Roy. But reporting about a changing India is one thing. Living in it and dealing with a country where newspapers are still being launched instead of folding, Internet rumors spark mass exoduses, and cricketers advertise skin-whitening creams called Fair and Handsome is another thing.
Sandip Roy’s "Dispatch from Kolkata" can be heard Wednesdays at 7:35am and 4:45pm during KALW’s presentation of Morning Edition and All Things Considered.
