In this ear-opening episode, Rajan takes a trip to the freezer of the world, that is Canada! Here he meets an extraordinary documentary maker who risked it all to tell a story of female boxers in India. Motivated by a single photo and on a shoe-string budget, little did she know that this voyage would last 10 years! This is an incredible conversation on the power of a dream and die-hard perseverance. Welcome to a conversation with Ameesha Joshi.

About Ameesha Joshi:

Ameesha Joshi is a documentary maker with a passion for people. On a whim and after seeing a photo of Indian female boxers at an art exibition in Cananda, she took the plunge and travelled to India to record their stories. It was a grueling 10 years in the process where she caputured the rise of Mary Kom and her film ran across the international festivals.

About the Global Indian Series:

Rajan Nazran is the chief chief explorer for the Global Indian Series, the official platform for people of Indian origin (PIO), because let’s face it, we are everywhere!

For almost 15 years we have travelled across the globe covering 58 countries to date whilst exploring the kaleidoscope of our remarkable global community.

Voyaging to the edges of the Amazon, facing Ebola in West Africa, being held hostage in Eastern Europe, tapping rubber in Malaysia, drinking chai with Heads of State and sharing laughter with local fishermen – I have been there, looking for us!

Our purpose is simple, to build a living encyclopaedia of the community and a safe mooring ground for open discussions, whether you are an NRI, Indian Diaspora, person of Indian origin (PIO) or a fan of South Asian anthropology, what we do is bring people and communities together.

We do this by plunging into the human experience of being a person of Indian origin (PIO), taking a second look at the countries we now call home and tackling the conversations we need to know more about.

Through our range of award-winning original content (print, podcasts, events and TV) and fascinating discussions, our impactful stories and platforms have spearheaded national and international conversations that have brought people together.

Our work is featured in global brands including The Indian Express, OWM, Manager, ABC and many more.

One response to “THE 10 YEAR GAMBLE OF A DOCUMENTARY MAKER – MADE IN CANADA”

  1. Kia says:

    First off I want to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find
    out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    before writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts
    in getting my ideas out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?

    Appreciate it!
