It was on expected lines. “Slumdog Millionaire” swept eight Oscars at the 81 st Academy Awards including Best Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Sound Mixing, Film Editing, Original Score, Original Song, Direction and Motion Picture. Indian music maestro A.R. Rahman brought home two awards with his Jai Ho... composition. My wife rang up early in the morning to declare the news from Chennai, while my colleagues decided to pool some money and celebrate with cakes, which we did. I liked this particular comment from Madrasi Mozart (Rahman): "All my life, I had a choice of hate and love. I chose love, and I'm here." The news has been all around the globe. So I do not want to take more time on this subject as I cannot add anything new.
