Mumbai, July 22: Bloom, a start-up birthed at the height of the pandemic, celebrated its uninterrupted 100th talk show episode with a celebratory event at the plush St Regis hotel in Mumbai on 17th July 2022.

Bloom started its Sunday talk show in September 2020. Since then, every Sunday, without a break, it has brought celebrities from around the globe to the show. The 100th talk show episode was on 17th July 2022. The show’s first few episodes were hosted by K. V. Premraj alone. Later on, Deepak Khemani joined him, and these two hosted a vast majority of the shows. For variety, the other Bloom founders, Dr Neeta Mhatre, Abhijit Sanzgiri and Payal Irani, co-anchored some of the shows.

As part of the 100th episode celebration, Bloom ventured into collating and publishing a book co-authored by 12 inspirational ladies. It was a mix of foreign and Indian authors. The book ‘From Gloom to Bloom’ was released at the hands of the Dr Manju Lodha, an eminent philanthropist who is also an accomplished orator, poet and social worker.

Post lunch, the second part of the day was unfurled— the Global Humanitarian award to a dozen eminent ladies.

The awardees were given time to trace the journey of their lives and culminate in their association with Bloom. The depth of feeling expressed by these awardees was heartwarming. One of the awardees was a trans person, Damini Sinha.

After Premraj introduced her, Manisha spoke about her journey from showbiz to the race track.
