    Slumdog Millionaire wins 8 Oscars

    I don't think you understand the meaning of the word pun. Perhaps you should pay a visit to Dictionary.com. But no, I don't understand. because your original post doesn't back up your claim that you were quoting Indian bloggers and Indian media. You simply made up the excuse later. No...

    Slumdog Millionaire wins 8 Oscars

    More importantly the Mighty Heart, was pretty much a negative portrayal of Pakistan. The kidnapping and execution of Daniel Pearl. OTOH, Slumdog shows India and Bombay transforming itself. Its a positive message of hope and change for the better.

    Slumdog Millionaire wins 8 Oscars

    Lets just forget it. Its obvious that Asim and Bezerk here are simply interested in making snide comments about poverty in India, and simply shout out any other points of view.

    Well, the word that I used has been used by several members before on this forum, and myself as well, with no action by the mods. So do forgive me if I thought it was acceptable.

    Incidentally, slumdwellers associations in Mumbai were protesting against the movie. Does that tell you somehing that you ought to be discussing here? What nonsense. Have you seen Bombay? Satya? Parzania? Indian movies have depicted the "underbelly" of mumbai several times. however, I'll...

    Slumdog Millionaire wins 8 Oscars

    What an absurd comment, and completely unrelated to the reasons behind MY comment which you replied to. You are implying that I'm somehow personally responsible for the condition of slumdwellers in India, and by calling out Bezerk here on his ridiculous assertion that "India is the biggest...

    That's a very strange comment, considering that its the Firang which made the film possible in the first place.

    IIPM is a fraud business school. Their MBA isn't even real, and not recognized by the UGC or any other body in India. Check it out. I know this because I'm "in the loop" as it happens, regarding B-schools in India. The Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM) advertising...

    ^That article is horse-manure. He can't even spell warp, writing "wrap" everywhere. Slumdog doesn't sell poverty, it sells hope and an underdog story. It sells a fairytale happy ending.

    Doesn't address the sentence in question at all. In any case, congrats to Beaufoy - a great writer, Danny Boyle - great director and fantastic human being, A R Rahman - genius as usual, and all the other cast and crew. :wave:

    Issue fatwa saying India a friend of Islam: VHP to Muslims

    You can't wish away the VHP by calling them names. They're there, and its a great thing that they are looking for reconciliation rather than confrontation.

    Issue fatwa saying India a friend of Islam: VHP to Muslims

    I find nothing wrong in VHP, or anybody for that matter, obtaining a fatwa in this regard. Always good to clear up misunderstandings.
