Slumdog Millionaire

Couldn't stay from that title for a blog post for too long now, could we?

Do watch the movie, well worth your time. There are enough reviews on the internet world about this movie, so I shall not be wasting your time here.
Instead, once you have seen the movie, I would like you to read this article by Mandakini Gahlot in the Indian Express:
On R-Day eve, city ‘Slumdogs’ see Millionaire, dream to break free

Sanjay, a 25 year old who led a life from the slums to now working at an NGO, talks about these slum kids:
“Why do you think they wear dirty clothes and look unwashed?” he asked. “They can afford to wash themselves and their clothes but if they look too clean, the cops will harass them.”
