Jelle Brandt Corstius goes on a journey through India. Where, as an expert, he tried to explain Russia in the series From Moscow to Murmansk and From Moscow to Magadan, he is now a foreigner trying to understand India.

The country has more poor - 426 million - than the 26 poorest African countries taken together. But there is also extreme wealth. Indian conglomerates buy Western companies. India’s greatest challenge is not to become more wealthy but to spread its wealth more evenly. Brandt Corstius travels the country between two extremes. From Bihar, in the poor east, to Bangalore, the technological giant in the rich southwest.
