Perhaps people of my country shouldn’t have shown excessive nationalistic pride at the Oscars. The movie was British and not Indian, and it wasn’t exactly stellar performance either. We’ve all seen better stuff at the Oscars.
Excessive nationalism is arrogant because the world is too small and mixing. A 1000 years from now, it will be hard to define what it means to be American or Indian however hard the people of those lands try to restrict who gets to take center stage.
