India: world's largest democracy
Around 1.2 billion people live in India and everyone over the age of 18 has the right to vote. That makes it the world's biggest democracy. Teenager Tushar takes viewers around the city of Delhi. We visit an area where large houses are being built and Tushar explains how India's economy is booming. Then we visit a poorer area of the city, where people live in shanty towns or slum conditions. Viewers hear that 450 million Indians live on less than one pound a day. But everyone – rich or poor, has the right to vote.
