Three 13-year-olds go on a trip of a lifetime to explore the geography of India. Dua, Amalia and Nayan find out what life is really like for the people of India. They take a cruise down the Ganges river, play cricket in an Indian village, visit a remarkable school and go to work with young Indians. The students experience life in two contrasting centres - Patna, a very traditional Indian city, and Bangalore, one of India's fastest growing cities and a place which has a far more westernised feel. As they cruise on the mighty Ganges, the students discover how the river supports life across the whole of northern India.
