How music, art and sculpture can provide sanctuary and convey spirituality

From India, novelist Anuradha Roy considers what the ancient sculptures at Khajuraho temple in central India can tell us about how the experience of being Hindu in the country has changed.

Also, Swedish writer Jonas Hassen Khemiri remembers his childhood visits to his family's sacred space - the local library, and Indian poet and producer Vandana Arimardan explains how she wrote a song to commemorate this year’s International Yoga Day. Presented by Tina Daheley.
