Slumdog love!

I am watching Oprah! They just finished performing Jai-Ho. I was tearing up at the eyes. I have loved loved loved Indian culture and music for so long and I am ecstatic that this movie has just helped it cross over into the big hollywood scene. Not that I have much respect for the big hollywood scene, I just think it’s about time we gave other cultures credit for the amazing talent they have to offer, and I am especially fond of Indian culture. The actors and performers looks so overwhelmed and greatful and excited and it makes me feel overwhelmed, grateful and excited.

I hope I come back Indian in my next life πŸ™‚ I will dress in fancy shiny Sari’s everyday, eat loads of delish indian food and dance to Bollywood music, haha I do that now. I only got married in a white wedding dress for my families sake, I got bridal mendhi on my hands and wrists for myself though, even though no one  else got it.

Now I want to watch Slum Dog again for the third time. I also want to watch Monsoon Wedding again, I love that movie. Hey, fun trivia, did you know the movie Hollywood Bollywood was filmed in Toronto and the scene with the cross dressing performing uncle was filmed in my old belly dancing school there?

Also how grateful and whimsical was Kate Winslet. I love her.

When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. Hehe, I totally feel the same way! Love this post! πŸ™‚
    Where did you take bellydancing in Toronto?
    Kate Winslet is a goddess!!

  2. I used to listen to Indian music on my college radio station non-stop.I really liked Bride and Prejudice, but I haven’t really seen any other Indian musicals/films. I am so PO’ed that I still haven’t had the opportunity to see Slumdog. I hope before it leaves the big screen…
