Slumdog Millionaire - run of a lifetime !!

First, its a nice movie.
Second, to all the desi lovers, what it is shows, is the truth, except for one or two disgusting scenes (even if it were the truth).
- the kid jumping into the shit hole (it was humorous nonetheless)
- people on the street watching as a man was on fire on the street (not ALL indians are heartless, specially when he is already far away from the mob).
Third, an Oscar & Golden Globe award, doesnt mean it is the best.
Fourth, its not any different from Deewar or some similar bollywood masala movie. Only thing missing was the punch line - "tere paas kya hai?", "mera paas computerji ke liye answers hai"
Last, why would i read out the question to my friend of a lifetime... when you know fully well that she like you probably never went to school. And if this was relevant to your life like the movie shows, i would re-write the phone-a-friend dialogue to "Hello! Hello!! Kaun? Lathika? How are you?........ Acha, what would your name be if you were the third musketeer, arthos, parthos aur ??"

Thanks. It was a nice movie. But just that. Lets not get carried away.

Change in White House

Within minutes or exactly at 12:01 pm on Jan 20th, the Obama team changed the web site at whitehouse.gov !! Take a look, from Change to WhiteHouse.

The earlier background read 'Change has come to White House'. They are promising a lot of stuff here.

Just hope that they keep their word and it looks and feels the same at the end of 2012. Till then, hope is what we got.
