Just been watching this three part series about trains crossing borders. In India Nepal Bangladesh and Pakistan. It was so interesting about partition its effect on the people in each area. Following staff at the stations and on the trains and passengers and their reasons for taking the train journeys
It was heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.

Yes I've been watching it - I think I've missed one. The level of poverty is shocking. So many things we take for granted, they have to go without.
When we visited we noticed the huge gap between the rich and the poor. And the massive size of the population. Especially rural.
