India and Ireland

Listen in pop-out player

It might be traditional - but a clumsily-worn sari can leave you looking like "a silky sack of potatoes". Anu Anand, textile novice, gets tied in (rather more dainty) knots at Delhi's "sari school", and learns a great deal about the history and the messages of India's national dress. Meanwhile, Kieran Cooke's on a garrulous train journey from Westport to Dublin - where his fellow passengers have thoughts to share about everything from salmon-killing jellyfish to Ireland's new generation of economic emigrants. Producer: Polly Hope; Presenter: Pascale Harter. Photo credit: Anu Anand/BBC
