The granddaughter of Mahatma Gandhi, Amrita Gandhi, is currently shining in television showing the traditions of the royal families of India through her Royal Reservations program. The program seeks to show the customs of the giant Asian royalties and bring them closer to the viewers.
“Many royal families do things in a very distinctive taditional way to keep them alive because in many cases they are almost lost”, said the young woman of 36 years and mother of a year and a half child.
“It is not about opulence or luxury, but to bring the tradition to The people,” said Amrita. A real world that contrasts with the way she highlights of Mahatma: life “austerity and discipline.”
The journalist prefers to talk about her work before her famous ancestor, as she considers a coincidence to be a descendant of one of the fathers of independent India. “I do not want to mix my name with my professional identity,” said Amrita, who believes that “one should follow their own interests.”
Amrita at age 21 began her career as a television reporter “covering the stories that were not important”, but soon she left “because it was all very unexpected”.In the last four years she has worked for Royal Reservations, but has plans to venture into the theater, an art, carreer she studied in San Francisco (USA).
Amrita is one of 25 great-grandchildren of a spiritual leader who fought for the independence of India from the British Empire, which had 4 children and 15 grandchildren.
