I did a Give-Away about a month ago when I got back from India. Part of the reason was to share some things that I had brought back; the other was to try and find out who has been reading this blog. A scant few of you left a comment and I thank you. The rest of you…well, here’s a second chance.
I’m getting ready to go back in less than a week. I may be back for a visit around Easter, or mayhaps not until the end of June. Either way, there will most likely not be another Give-Away until I’m back in the states. It’s not that I’m too cheap to spend the money on the postage; it’s more that I don’t trust that what I send will make it to its intended destination.
Any-Hulu, during the last month or so not only have I eaten foods not available in India and caught up with friends and family, I’ve caught up on numerous TV shows. One, which some of you may be aware of, is a show on NBC called ‘Outsourced’. The premise: an American based company’s call center has been outsourced to India and the lone American working there is trying to understand Indian culture. Humor ensues and it’s quite entertaining, though it’s obvious that it’s filmed in the U.S. and the background scenes are not.
What you may not be aware of is that this series is based on a film, of the same name, that was released in 2006. I watched it on NetFlix after already visiting India last January and before finding out that I’d be moving there. Paul watched it too after working in India for almost a year. We both found it fairly accurate as to what to expect, but with a nice American sugary coating. It has a decent plot and is an enjoyable movie to watch with a big bowl of curry spiced popcorn.
What I’m trying to say is this Give-Away’s prize is the DVD of Outsourced (the movie). Again, the reason for this Give-Away is to get some of you to comment, but it’s also a way to share this movie...either you’ll win it or you’ll be intrigued enough to want to buy or rent it.
So here’s out this goes. In order to be entered you must…
