Slumdog Millionaire

Seeing this movie on the heels of India’s latest tragedy in present-day Mumbai gave me pause to reflect on not only the senselessness of the terrorists’ motives in killing innocent victims, but also on the senselessness of the poverty that surrounds those same posh 5-star hotels.  I cannot equate the murder of guiltless persons with the destitution of poverty-stricken individuals as portrayed in the film, but there seems to be a paradox about the cruelty humans inflict on one another—in one case deliberately and in the other as a result of being born into the lower echelons of a society. ~Nilda Andrews, Living Life…Boomer Style Magazine
