I don’t get it. I’ve heard several of my friends and countless blog posts being very cynical about the reason why people all over the world loved the movie Slumdog Millionaire. Why are these people hell bent on convincing themselves and others that fans of the movie are sadists who thoroughly enjoyed themselves mocking the pitiable plight of poverty stricken Indians.
If the movie won the highest honors in film making because the sadists loved it then God help the world. I mean cmon, Do these people really believe that the movie was loved because of the slum children jumping in shit??
Clearly these peopel are ashamed to their bones of accepting the dark side of our country. Yes, we’ve made strides in the upward direction and yes we are making progress every second of every day but that doesn’t mean the dark side no longer exits. It very much does and unless we acknowledge it and do something about it, it’s not going to go away. Shoving it under the sheets will only make it worse.
People: Grow Up!! Learn how to accede to reality humbly and acknowledge kudos gracefully.
