Amalia joins Neha who works for one of India's biggest multinational companies making electric cars. Nayan joins Suman, an entrepreneur who has created an international company designing computer games. Dua meets Shiva who came to Bangalore to seek work. He found an opportunity to set up a food stall and now runs a successful small business catering for local workers. Each of the pupils reflects on their experiences and how they have been inspired by the success of each of their Indian hosts.
The pupils meet a local expert on rural life in India and learn that the majority of India's population live in rural areas and are subsistence farmers. They hear how India's extreme climate can be hazardous for subsistence farmers due to drought and flooding and how the monsoon can force people to move to the cities each year to work. They meet local children and talk about what life is like living in rural India.
Dua, Amalia and Nayan are in Patna, which is located on the middle course of the river where the Ganges is over 4km wide. They meet a local scientist as they travel along the river, and discuss how the river is deemed sacred to Hindus and a lifeline to local people who use the river to irrigate their crops, to wash and to travel, yet it is heavily polluted. The pollution affects the river dolphin population. The pupils discover that the course of the river changes as it slows and it deposits sediment, which helps provide the farmers with rich, fertile soil when the river floods during the monsoon.
Three 13-year-olds are going on a trip of a lifetime: to discover the geography of India. Dua, Amalia and Nayan find out what life is really like for the people of India.
