"Slumdog Millioraire" - How close is it to real life in India? Is this it? Does it, the movie, Slumdog depict the sentiments in India? I know there are quite a few Indian people frequenting this board, so please chime in and clarify some issues I have. - How prevalent is the caste system nowadays? I saw "Slumdog Millioraire" for the first time yesterday, and quite frankly, I was shocked. I gather there is not much respect amongst Indian peoples of different "classes", disrespect seems to be a "given". Where does India "fit in" in our, oh so "developed society" nowadays? I'm at a loss here.
