Indian billionaire breaks into poem

Nadir Godrej is a top executive at one of India's biggest businesses. The family behind Godrej Industries is worth more than $9bn (£5.4bn), according to the Forbes Rich List.

As well as being a billionaire businessman, Mr Godrej is also a published poet.

But when he joined a panel discussion for BBC World's India Business Report about the challenges to India's manufacturing sector, nobody expected him to have written a few verses on that very subject.

You can watch the full (non-rhyming) discussion on BBC World on Sunday, 31 August.
