Slumdogs and Millionaires

0

If the portrait of India in this movie mystifies you, this series of short documentary videos from National Geographic offers some explanations. 

Focussing on the seismic changes coming about as a result of the Golden Quadrilateral, a wildly ambitious superhighway project that will finally link the major cities of Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, New Delhi and Mumbai, the videos help you understand the pride of a young woman earning her living for the first time, the frustration of poor farmers losing their lands to a new auto plant, the stunning prosperity of families in million-dollar subdivisions, and the loneliness of long-distance truck drivers who describe their jobs as the filthiest in India.

Alex, what is there to be repulsed about; these people are the finest examples of hard-work, honesty and a life of achievement. I resent your choice of words here, even if they were well meant to begin with.

We are repulsed at the thought of how poorly these people live, but I think we have to keep in mind that there has been progress in improving their lives. Yes, they are poor but they were far worse before.

A nation does not become wealthy overnight.
