May 3 & 4
Sunday at 2pm & Monday at 9pm

David Brown leads a team of reporters to India. What they find is a nuclear-armed, IT-driven superpower vying for a new place on the world stage. Yet the disparity between India's fabulous wealth and its devastating poverty threaten to destabilize the entire nation.

What does this mean for India? For the United States? For the world?

Learn about the enormous challenges for an emerging superpower positioned in one of the most dangerous places in the world. The attacks on Mumbai, the tenuous border with Pakistan, a deeply-rooted internal terrorist network, and the global financial crisis make India's future even more uncertain.

 India Rising is part of the weekly documentary series Showcase, Sundays at 2pm and Mondays at 9pm.
