India's education challenges

Whoever wins the Indian election will face an economic slowdown and an education crisis. The BBC's Anu Anand is in New Delhi, finding out about a shortage of universities in India. We hear about the pressures that Indian students are under to get top grades to get into the best universities, and meet some of the private tutors helping them to achieve that. Those pressures have led to many students taking their own lives in recent years. Abdul Mahmood explains why he set up two helplines to try and prevent student suicides. We travel to Haryana in Northern India to meet the people behind non-profit organisation Kamalini, which focuses on vocational training to help women enter the workforce. Plus we visit the Khari Baoli spice market in New Delhi, where Anshu Kumar of Meherchand and Sons tells us about the business of sourcing and selling spices.
