Namaste New Zealand (9) - Series Two, Episode One

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2019

Money management, food and getting fit the fun way are all themes in this episode of Namaste, a magazine-style series about Indians living in Aotearoa. First up, Dr Pushpa Wood from Massey University discusses the importance of setting up good savings habits and avoiding the pitfalls of 'easy' credit. There's an interview with restaurateur Sid Sahrawat, while software engineer Bhumika Dhingra talks about her Bhangra Fit class, a joyful folk dance inspiring Kiwis from all backgrounds to move their bodies. Presenter Kadambari Raghukumar finishes the episode sharing a biryani with chef Raj Balakrishnan. 

People in our community — they're not fond of gyms, and Indian women they relate to what we do in Bhangra Fit. It's an easy to follow workout and we've customised it in a way that it suits people of all fitness levels, so the classes have proved very effective...
– Bhumika Dhingra on the success of her Bhangra Fit dance classes with Indian women
