Mumbai: "Slumdog Millionaire" + live SAJA webcast

Just got home, after a full day in the city--centered around a viewing of "Slumdog Millionaire."  More on that later..but just checked my e-mail to see that there is a live webcast about the events in Mumbai, so listening to that now.

This is already the 6th such webcast that SAJA has hosted.  Looks like they will be doing these every 12 hrs.  Here is their archive of webcasts and their posts on the Mumbai events:

For good measure, here is SAJA's post from a couple weeks ago about "Slumdog":

Hope/plan to write more on "Slumdog" and Mumbai soon..
