The team behind Baalgtha Podcast
Our team at Kamakshi Media LLP consists of Amar, Sheerali, Buddy and Minu. Amar is the creator, Sheerali the narrator. Buddy is our mascot. Minu is our sanity keeper.
Kamakshi Media LLP is a Bangalore based startup in the digital media space. We incorporated in January 2016, launched our first podcast (audio show) MyKitaab: THE podcast on Book Publishing in India, in the same month. At this time, our shows include MyKitaab; Digital PowWow, Baalgatha and NRI:Now, Returned to India. We also work with corporate clients and individuals to produce high quality audio shows as well as coffee table books. The production team consists of Co-Founders Amar and Minu; they are occasionally accompanied by Buddy.
Amar is the chief conspirator. He has worked with Amazon and Schneider Electric in the past, but now is on what he calls as a podcasting sabbatical. He does not know that that term means. In Amar’s own words,
“I have lived in fifteen cities over the past twenty years, . This includes the the two years I spent at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign as a graduate student, and spent an year at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad for my MBA. These days I live in Bengaluru (Bangalore) in India.In my spare time, I like exploring offbeat places, learning Gujarati from my wife,and spending time with Buddy.”
Buddy is an occasional participant in the podcast, though we do not particularly encourage him to do so. We have decided to make him the official mascot.
