The “grand success” of SDM has had one benefit for Indians: now we have begun to be abused as ‘slumdogs’ all over the world. Abuses such as “Pakis” and “coolies” have become old-fashioned. Now we are greeted with the shouts of: “Hey you bloody slumdog, step out of the way!”
It is disgusting to see the frothing-in-the-mouth of Anil Kapoor who is delirious with joy and running all around the world grinning ear to ear at his “success.” If there is actually a coolie in India, it is him. But wait a minute. On second thoughts, there may be another one.
Congratulating the ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ and “Smile Pinky’ team for winning Oscars, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today said the “winners have done India proud” and their achievement is a tribute to the Indian film industry.
Didn’t our glorious prime minister declare in the UK that the British capture of India was the most glorious episode in Indian history and all Indians are gloriously grateful for it? I can’t believe he is from the same stock that gave India such far-sighted warriors as Maharaja Ranjit Singh and Guru Gobind Singh.
