#BBCtrending: The 'electronic fix' for India's filth and corruption

Can the internet solve India's worst problems?

India has big problems with dirty streets and corruption. Dense, overpopulated, urban communities have led to huge issues with sanitation, and according to Transparency International's corruption index, more than half of Indians say they've paid a bribe in the last year.

#BBCtrending's Mukul Devichand took a trip to Bangalore, India to find out.

Produced, filmed and edited by Benjamin Zand.
