According to the report and her Twitter handle, she is not living in Spain but in London.

Apart from this, we also got a tweet from the British High Commission in India. In which the video of Gabriella Burnell was posted. Also said, listen to @gabriellaburnel who promotes Sanskrit, the ancient language of #India and has earned her the nickname ‘India’s Cultural Ambassador to the UK’ – her work shows the importance she gives to Indian culture.

So, it is clear that Gabriella was not reciting Sanskrit shlokas for Burnell’s radio channel. This claim is misleading.
