It is nice and heartening to know about three Indians getting Oscar awards for A R Rahman, Gulzar and Resul Pookutty... (did you note the religion of all the 3 winners? conspicuously...)
Smile Pinki a documentary on Indian Upper Lip Cleft theme, has also won a documentary award.
Earlier in Elizabeth an Indian lady got in the fashion/dress work. Satyajit Ray too got for lifetime achievement.
Now Feb 23rd, 2009 is a memorable moment.
India has become a good open market, and world can explore now.
Tourists would flow in.
Indians would get much needed recognition abroad. We are not snake charmers or villagers!
