The Help

A couple weeks back I was chatting with a friend from India. I had just mentioned that I had watched the move, The Help.  She mentioned that she had watched the movie on her flight back to India.  She loved it, and was riled up at the end, filled with indignancy at the injustice.  Then she got home, and remembered that her servants have their own separate bathrooms.  And the help who cook are only brahmins, lest lesser classes defile the food.
