Thanks for the reply. Didn't get this until this morning.
I have a file named MyHandlers.py in which I have the class MyHandler.
when I use
__import__('MyHandlers', globals(), locals(), ['MyHandler']) or
eval('MyHandler()', globals(), locals()) or eval('MyHandlers.MyHandler()',
I get a NameError: name 'MyHandler' is not defined.

try the builtin function "__import__" (not the keyword)
