As China's economic growth slows, can India take its place as the world's leading emerging market economy? We ask India's finance minister, Arun Jaitley. Also, the BBC's Rahul Tandon reports from Kolkata on the millions of Indians who continue to live in absolute poverty despite India's rapid growth. We ask professor Ashwini Deshpande of the Delhi School of Economics, how India's inequality compares with that of other emerging market economies. And the Indian philosopher and Nobel prize-winning economist Amartya Sen tells us why he believes that a lack of investment in education and healthcare will hold India back from ever competing effectively with China.
