TIME Person of the Century Review

"A detailed site offering everything from quotes and cartoons to book excerpts and an Ask Gandhi section."
The Online Edition of TIME Magazine on Mahatma Gandhi Album

January 2001

"It's presumptuous to create a site on Indian culture. To encapsulate the country's diversity in a few hundred web pages and explain its mystery in user-friendly language, is usually a disappointing attempt. The Kamats didn't attempt anything so ambitious, and succeeded beyond all expectations."

Kamat's India

Travel writing is often more about checking in and checking out than about exploring the world. Kamat's Potpourri site so vibrantly explores India, a collection of the world's oldest cultures, that it leaves the virtual visitor with a heightened curiosity that turns the next trip to the corner grocery into an excursion. Even if you don't have the cash to dash off to India, spend a few minutes pondering a collection of essays on women's roles through Indian history, or read Sages, Sadhus and Swamis, an essay on the holy men of India. Or the much misunderstood erotic art tradition. Or the amazingly developed popular art of Rangoli. Travelers with plane tickets will find calendars and timely information to make a trip much more rewarding.
