Prime Minister Narendra Modi was at the White House today. He'll address Congress tomorrow as relations between the US and India continue to warm up. But Senators of both parties have criticized India's human rights record, and Modi himself once was denied a US visa for tolerating religious violence. He now governs a nation that needs new jobs for a million people who turn 18 every month, while economic growth increases the dangers of climate change. We hear about India's role in America's "Pivot to Asia" and the challenge of China's assertiveness.
