Being a "Slumdog" Kid III

These beautiful talented kids, Rubina Ali and Mohammed Azharuddin Ismail, of "Slumdog Millionaire" walked the catwalk during Delhi's Fashion Week.



While they are most adorable and talented, I find it incredibly sad that these kids will go back to their slums as they did after the movie premier. Are these kids being exploited?

An adorable pair. It would seem so,
having to return to life in a slum,
after winning such honor for their
country, yes.

They are incredibly adorable and what makes me so sad is that they seemed to be exploited by so many people, including their parents. Although it seems that the producers of "Slumdog Millionaire" have made some provisions for them, I still can't help but to think of what Western children must receive for the same work as opposed to what they have gotten for their talents. They were EXCELLENT in "Slumdog Millionaire" and as we can see they are most beautiful on the catwalk.
