Slumdog in Brief

“Did you see that Slumdog  won?”

“Yeah! What did you think of it.”

“I just love the music, and that English boy, he is very good.”

“Yeah I saw John Stewart interview him. I heard some people are upset about the title, you know “Slumdog” is kind of a harsh term.”

“But, in India that’s the way it is, you know. They are treated like 4th or 5th class citizens. But we have our own ways of doing that here too. “

There you have it. Great music and the English boy is very good with a few harsh realities thrown in. Now I will have to see this one. We don’t have time to have long discussions about popular culture at work. As my Punjabi friend says, “A teacher’s plate is very full.”
