Profile of Kamat's Potpourri
First Online: June 02, 2001
Kamat's Potpourri is an educational website on India exploring the rich cultural diversity of the subcontinent. It has been operational for seven years (started 1995), and is managed by four members of the Kamat family. It is one of the largest personal websites on the web with thousands of pictures, articles, and hundreds of thousands of hyperlinks between them.
What is extraordinary about this website is that it is produced with cheapest technology and that it documents many a facts about India unknown to outside world -- sometimes unknown within India. Never been photographed, for example, is a collection of portraits of people who have never been in front of a camera. The website gives a first person account of tribal life, of poverty, of reconstructing Indian history, and interviews with famous people. It provides fresh perspectives on often misunderstood ideas of Mahatma Gandhi and about the Erotic Arts of India.
Vikas (the son) Kamat explains --"I think of Kamat's Potpourri as a bridge; between India's beauty and her problems, between the rich and poor, between India's glorious past and her desperate future, and among the Indian Diaspora". The website also takes a moderate approach between scholarly content and popular interests, keeping it both educational and entertaining. Spend enough time on the website, and you will be appalled by the gap between the haves and have-nots in India; in Now and Then, you will be amazed how much of India has not changed.
All of the content is laboriously compiled by the Kamats.
To see the fruits of their sincere labor, and to see the mystical,
magical, fabled land of India, visit Kamat's Potpourri at http://www.kamat.com
