    Hey Thaso,

    I am so glad you included a post relating the movie. It is really a great movie, and not to forget it won the so many oscar awards recently. It really depicts the real life of people in slums.

    Great post.


  4. Excellent film. We know the facts shown in the movie. May be, elsewhere in the world the people face the same problems or rather worse. How to improve the life of the POOR ? We must find out. We must ACT.
