Read Q & A or watch Slumdog millionaire

in: Movies

Slumdog-Millionaire.jpgA few years back I read the novel called Q & A written by Vikas Swarup. Q and A is the first novel by Vikas who is an Indian diplomat. It is a nicely written story of Ram Mohammad Thomas, a poor young waiter who becomes the biggest quiz-show winner in history. After this historical win he was accused of cheating and then he explains to his sympathetic lawyer, Smita Shah, just how he managed to answer twelve random questions, by pure luck. As he says, “Well, wasn’t I lucky they only asked those questions to which I knew the answers?” Ram goes on to tell her how by drawing from the experiences of his own turbulent and cruel life he managed to answer the twelve questions that led him to the jackpot.
