Smile Pinky......smile

we as a nation are on top of the world basking in the knowledge that one of our countrymen is nominated to the Oscars!!!!!!!!! every news paper, every party, every lunch hour conversation talks of Rehman and his chances of winning an award at Los Angels! with great admiration i too read thru all items about Rehman, and discussed with G K and my friends about Rehman and his greatness.......Then my eyes fell on thelines...".I have never gone beyond Varanasi, America is so far away......no money to fly to los angels".....While slumdog millionaire dazzles, little pinky of little known mirzapur is struggling to reach LA....Yes the eight year old protagonist of oscar nominated documentary.....Smile Pinki..is the one i am talking about. What a paradoxe! Here is anation revelling at the idea of a music icon winning world's biggest award, and there is the real life heroine of documentary film based on the cure of her lip deformity struggling to get a decent pair of dress for herself and dreaming of going to a place her father can never dream of.... My heart goes out to the little girl who is Megan Mylan's lucky mascot..... if only.... if only.... we could help the child to make an appearence at the award ceremony.....of course if finally the film is selected... .........IF ONLY.......
