India’s Gold Obsession

This is a story I did for BBC TV a few years back with my wife, Anu.

It’s about India’s voracious appetite for gold. The piece is as timely today as gold imports continue to skew the country’s trade deficit and gold investment locks up ever more precious capital.

In July alone India’s gold imports amounted to $2.9 billion (Source: Reuters). That figure seems likely to rise in the coming months (despite government/central bank intervention) as we enter the big wedding/festival season.

I shot, produced and edited the story.
