Piracy is a big problem for the music industry everywhere but in India it's stopped the industry generating the kind of sales you might expect in such a large market. So can the rise of streaming services - offering legal access to music at prices some are prepared to pay - make a difference? The BBC's Suranjana Tewari has been taking a look from Mumbai.

Clubfoot used to mean a life of unemployment and illiteracy for children born in developing countries – but now effective treatments mean they have a better chance at a full life. The condition means that a child cannot put their foot flat on the floor – so in some cases they would not be able to go to school or play easily. A treatment called the Ponseti method gently realigns the foot using surgery, plaster casts and a brace worn at night. Suranjana Tewari has been to one clinic in Mumbai where they are about to test a new kind of low-cost brace.

It’s less than a week to the UN climate summit in Paris and with India being the world’s third largest emitter of greenhouse gases, Delhi has promised to generate 40% of its electricity from renewables within 15 years. Much of that will come from wind power, and although India is already the world’s fifth largest wind producer, increasing output to meet the new targets will not be easy. Suranjana Tewari reports from Pune.

A necklace designed for babies in India could be a lifesaver – thanks to the immunisation records it stores. Because infant immune systems aren’t fully developed, vaccines help to protect them from the most serious of childhood infections like measles and pneumonia. In rural Rajasthan vaccination rates are low – and helping to educate and remind parents is difficult. Suranjana Tewari went to find out about one project linking tradition with technology to protect children’s health.
