  2. AR Rahman has lost a lot of respect due to Slumdog:

    1. what is the chance of an indian living in Dharavi? 0.001 (1 million Dharavi residents out of a total population of 1.2 billion)
    2. what is the chance of a Muslim living in Dharavi? .03 (assume the percent in Dharavi is twice the percent of Muslims in all India)
    3. what is the chance of a Muslim child in Dharavi being orphaned due to parents being killed by a trishul during a communal riot: 0.001 (assume 1 out of every 1000 dharavi muslims has been orphaned in such manner)
    4. what is the chance that a muslim from dharavi makes it to Kaun Banega crorepati: 0.001 (assume 1 out of every 1000 dharavi muslims has participated in Kaun Banega crorepati)
    5. what is the chance that an orphaned muslim kid in dharavi has a buddy whose eyes have been gouged out by a spoon: 0.001 (assume 1 out of every 1000 dharavi muslim orphan has a buddy whose eyes have been gouged out by a spoon)
    6. what is the chance that a gameshow contestant in India gets tortured by police for alleged cheating: 0.001 (assume 1 out every 1000 gameshow contestants in India do get tortured by police for alleged cheating)
    7. what is the chance that a gameshow contestant in India needs to answer at least 4 eurocentric questions in the same session: 0.01 (this one is tough – I’m assuming 1 in a 100)

    I can go on and on but the chance of all these events happening to the same person as depicted in Slumdog: 3X10^-20
