Our wide-ranging journey explores those recent changes. We start in Mumbai, famed for its multi-cultural mix and home to a booming economy strangely situated alongside some of the largest slums in the country.

From there we fly north and see Ayodhya, the heartland of Hindu nationalism which has fueled religious tensions. These tensions are now seen as the largest threat to India’s democratic institutions, all the while encouraged by the governing BJP.

Outside the capital New Delhi we visit NGOs trying to tackle taboos of caste and class. Growth in India remains unequal and has left swathes of people in poverty. Corruption also remains ingrained. Can all this change?

The tour ends with visits to the parliament and meetings with a wide range of politicians and experts. There will also be time to relax in some of India’s best hotels including a former palace outside Delhi.
