Go to About Section

Reporter Jenny Kleeman and producer Edward Watts travel to the popular southern Indian tourist destination Kerala – which sells itself as 'God's Own Country'.


It’s home to hundreds of ashrams - spiritual retreats where thousands of pilgrims from India, Britain and the rest of the world seek salvation through a growing number of self-styled gurus. But, Unreported World reveals, Kerala’s 3,000 so-called “Godmen” are facing allegations ranging from fraud to physical and sexual abuse.


"As reporter Jenny Kleeman discovers, all is not quiet on the southern front."
