• India's 'Slumdog' Millions: A glimpse of life in Bihar's slums

    This short film, narrated by Mark Tully, shows a glimpse of what life is like for one family living in the slum of Kamla Nehru Nagar (Bihar, central India). Slum-dwellers are vulnerable. With no permanent roof over their heads, little prospect of a secure job and poor access to basic sanitation, bad health and social exclusion is rife. Children can become easy victims of crime, prostitution and child labour. This video shows how preventable diseases take a huge toll on slum-dwelling families.

Her dream has been whetted by the clamorous media attention and glitzy parties that followed the Bombay premiere of the Oscar-nominated movie, a rags-to-riches tale of a young boy from a Bombay slum, in which Rubina plays the leading lady as a young girl. "I like films. I like poems and I like my school," said the bright-eyed girl, popping a chewing gum in her mouth before confidently reciting English poems to visitors, her nose stud gleaming and pigtails...

The film's success has put the two child actors in the spotlight. Both of whom are real slum kids. Rubina Ali who played Latika in Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire is already a Hollywood star, and now the nine-year-old actress who lives in a one-room shack with her family in a Bombay slum, has her eyes firmly set on Bollywood. Her dream has been whetted by the clamorous media attention and glitzy parties that followed the Bombay premiere of the Oscar-nominated movie, a rags-to-riches tale of a young boy from a Bombay slum, in which Rubina plays the leading lady as a young girl. "I like films. I like poems and I like my school," said the bright-eyed girl, popping a chewing gum in her mouth before confidently reciting English poems to visitors, her nose stud gleaming and pigtails bobbing. Rubina's education at an English-language school, where she is in the first grade, is a gift from 'Danny uncle', director Boyle, who has denied a report in Britain's Daily Telegraph that slum children in the film were poorly paid. The school - Rubina's first - and photographs of the premiere and a helicopter ride for the kids in the film are among the few mementos Rubina's mother Munni has of the movie that is raking in awards even as they continue to live in a shack no different from dozens around them, with no windows, running water or toilets. "She was very happy to be in the film. Now she wants to be in more films Boyle makes and become a star," Munni said of the movie that has generated controversy in India over its name, its depiction of the poor and the treatment of the cast. "She's very stubborn, very spoilt because she's the youngest child. Whatever she wants, she gets," she said, as she puts away her daughter's school backpack, black shoes and white socks. Rubina and Azharuddin Ismail, who also plays a slum child, were enrolled last June in English-language schools paid for by Boyle, who also met their teachers. Boyle has arranged to pay about Rs 1,500 rupees monthly for their fees and other living expenses above the money paid for their work. Fox Star Studios, which released the film in India, said their wage was three times the average local annual adult salary for a month's work, but they would not give a figure. Boyle and producer Christian Colson will pay for the kids' education until they are 18 years old, and a "substantial lump sum" will also be given when they complete their studies to encourage them to continue with their education, Boyle has said. Despite the funds, Munni, who works as a domestic helper, is uncertain about her daughter's future and is also concerned about their inability to move into a proper house. "We are poor people. Bringing up five children is hard, Danny Boyle is a good human being... but we are poor, and we would like to buy a home. We have said we need help. He can show more kindness if he wants," she said. The open sewer outside the door and the smoky fires that cook the evening meal are a far cry from the flashbulbs and sequined gowns that Rubina and her mother wore at the Bombay premiere. The new clothes, paid for by Boyle, are now folded away in bags and boxes piled high on shelves that line the wall. Barbie stickers and spangly plastic bangles mark Rubina's corner. "The film has done so well and won so many awards, it is only fair that these children's lives should change more," said Nicholas Almeida, a social activist and slum dweller who has filed a complaint against the film's title in a local court. Boyle's munificence also appears to be out of reach for Ismail's father, who was admitted this week to a hospital to be treated for tuberculosis. The family was forced to move two months ago into a shack with flimsy plywood walls and a tarpaulin sheet for a roof after a wall that propped up their old shack was demolished. "What is the use of the money? I am a sick man. The government is taking care of me, not those people," he said, sitting on his bed in a crowded government hospital. For Rubina's mother Munni the potential demolition of their home which, like most shanties in this teeming city is an encroachment on government-owned land, is also a worry. But her daughter's immediate concern is to master the art of signing autographs, which she practices in reporters' notebooks. "I want to be a star like Preity Zinta," she said, referring to a popular Bollywood actress, her head bent in concentration as she spelled out the letters of her name in English.

Each chapter of Jamal's increasingly layered story reveals where he learned the answers to the show's seemingly impossible quizzes. But one question remains a mystery: what is this young man with no apparent desire for riches really doing on the game show? When the new day dawns and Jamal returns to answer the final question, the Inspector and sixty million viewers are about to find out. At the heart of its storytelling lies the question of how anyone comes to know the things they know about life and love.

A poor government clerk from a remote and poverty-stricken region of northern India was partying with film stars on Thursday night after becoming the first person to win 50 million rupees, worth over $1m or £634,000, on an Indian gameshow. In an astonishing real life version of the plot of the 2008 Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire, whose impoverished hero from a tough neighbourhood of the Indian commercial capital Mumbai wins the biggest prize on a TV quiz show, 27-year-old Sushil Kumar answered a final question correctly to take the jackpot of the massively popular local edition of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? "We can't believe it. The whole village have come to our house. We are worried that my dad will die of happiness," Sunil Kumar Patel, the winner's brother, told the Guardian. "We can't speak to Sushil. His mobile is off because he is out with the stars and on and off planes." Kumar, who has a master's degree in psychology from a local college, wept when the Indian movie legend Amitabh Bachchan, the show's host, handed him a cheque for 50 million rupees after the contestant gave all the right answers in the show's final round. On his blog Bachchan described "the tension as each question was meticulously answered ... and then [he] waited ... till almost eternity to decide on that final answer. "The entire place just exploded. The family of the contestant ... ran on to the set in uncontrollable joy and screams and tears of happiness, whilst the live audience were whooping it up on their feet with the loudest scream I have ever heard," Bachchan wrote. Before Kumar went on the programme, which was recorded on Tuesday and will air next week, he earned around £90 a month as a government office worker and supplemented his income as a private tutor in the small town of Motihari in the eastern state of Bihar. The third of five sons, he was working on a short-term contract as a computer operator on a public works scheme in the rural West Champaran district, close to the Nepali border. Bihar is one of the poorest states of India and its remoter areas, such as Motihari, have been largely untouched by India's phenomenal recent economic growth. Social indicators in much of Bihar are on a par with sub-Saharan Africa or worse. Kumar's brother said his family had been too poor to afford a television set and had watched the quiz show at a neighbour's home. "We all used to watch the show from its beginnings years ago and Sushil always knew all the answers. People used to say: 'Why don't you try it? You could win the money!'" Another reason was the dream of meeting Bachchan in person. A cousin, Sanjay Kumar, told the Calcutta Telegraph newspaper that the winner had first learned about his selection to appear on the programme -- known locally as KBC, short for Kaun Banega Crorepati in Hindi -- only two weeks ago. He had travelled to Mumbai with his wife Seema and two brothers last week. None had flown in an aeroplane before, or travelled to a big city. On his crucial ninth question in the final round, Kumar sought the help of a local teacher on his "phone-a-friend" lifeline, the cousin told the newspaper. According to the Associated Press news agency, Kumar said he would spend some of his prize money on a preparatory course for India's tough civil service exam, which could lead to a secure and prestigious lifetime job. Kumar said he would also buy a new home for his wife, pay off his parents' debts, give his brothers cash to set up small businesses and build a library in Motihari so the children of his village would have access to "books and knowledge". Local residents said they were proud of Sushil, who "would bring back glory to Motihari", now notorious for its many kidnap and extortion gangs, the Calcutta Telegraph reported. The town, 140 miles north of the state capital of Patna, was the birthplace of the author George Orwell. "This is the biggest Diwali gift we could ever have," Sunil Kumar told the Guardian. The win will inspire tens of millions of aspiring young Indians desperate for an opportunity to escape from lives of poverty, grinding labour or professional frustration.
