Merit always triumphs (or does it)

Nothing else matters.

Not age.
Not hardships.
Not who you were born to.
Not how you look.
Not how well connected you are.
Not how people perceive you.

Not in the UK atleast.
India? Well, Jaanta Nahi Meraa Baap Kaun Hai still prevails, unfortunately...

Ever imagine a 47-year old Indian woman, never-married, who stays alone with her cat, getting shortlisted to go on stage for the Indian Idol..? Though now, I am sure, we might!

See this, and try not getting teary-eyed!
