What is it like being black in India? That's what BBC Pop Up wanted to find out after Benjamin Pratt, a student from Sierra Leone now living in India, told us that many African immigrants are victims of racism and prejudice. BBC journalists Christian Parkinson and Vikas Pandey joined Benjamin on the streets of Delhi to find out more but ended up in a small village in the western state of Gujarat. There they discovered a surprising and little-known culture alive and well. Follow what BBC Pop Up is up to in India and find out how to get involved at bbc.com/popup.

An inspiring initiative has seen Botswana's vast diamond reserves, worth about three billion US dollars a year, being used to share wealth throughout the nation.
