Audio slideshow: The Indian Election Express

As Indians have been voting in the world's biggest democratic election, a team of BBC journalists has travelled 6,000 km across the country to meet hundreds of voters.

Look back at some of the sights and sounds from their 18 day trek on the BBC Indian Election Train - which took them from city slums to rural villages.
