BBC India Rising, Part 4
Can It All Hang Together?
There is no doubt that the economic revolution has enabled India to benefit financially. But what are the cost of such rapid expansion? The pollution has made some industrial areas unliveable.

Locally-produced story on Canadian-Pakistani pop band named JoSH. Todd Melby interviews the band's stars and plays a few of their songs.
