Jai Ho!

The expected has happened finally. Slumdog Millionaire has cast its spell on the Academy awards winning eight golden statuettes. Jai Ho!
Labelled as poverty porn the movie was not as popular in India as elsewhere probably but certainly sparked off several debates about how and why poverty should be depicted and that too by non-Indians.
Danny Boyle has done well in bringing out hope, innovation and a never say die attitude.
An attitude there for everyone to see yet we simply turn our minds away, close our eyes and wish them away except ofcourse for getting our jobs done....
