Million dollar smiles amidst the Slum.

Yesterday, while on a gettyimages assignment, I had an “Oscar” of an experience amidst the dwellings of two of the true stars of “Slumdog Millionaire” on ground realities (the real “tare zameen par”, if I may say so).

The Million dollar smiles were in abundance, amidst the Slum, in the company of Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail & Rubiana Ali and their family.

Azharuddin took my camera and shot my expressions. Needless to say, he made a “dog” out of me, when the roles reversed. Each of his expressions superseded mine by miles.

This was followed by a wonderful breakfast session at Rubiana’s. I haven’t had a sweeter Chai (Tea) before, as her whole family poured all their affection on me, over breakfast.

These are the real Gods (not Dogs) of the Slum, I discovered, who had love enough to easily make me a Millionaire and more.

Check out the pictures, and you would envy me, I am sure. ☺

I envy you indeed!

Listen up, buddy. I want you to blog more frequently...I'm sure it'll be far more lively than a passive site whose content never or seldom changes.

I'm adding your blog to my blogroll. It'll slip out of view if you're too slow in updating it.
