Prisoners of the past

Just the other day, I was talking to my mom and this topic of 'Glory days of India' came up.

Talking about Tanjore Temple, Taj Mahal, Gandhi, Ramanujam, CV Raman, Akbar, Babar, Sivaji etc. warms every Indian's heart. That's good. I am proud too.

Indians also feel happy about Venkatraman the Nobel Prize winner, AR Rahman's Oscar and Grammys, the growing economy etc. and feel unhappy about 'Slumdog Millionaire' exposing the slums.
