    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)

    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 or approx 0.00000000000000000003!!!!

    What is the chance that in a true Indian movie both the corrupt policeman & the gameshow host would have been beaten/ killed/ imprisoned at the end of the movie? 100%
