This morning’s request is my own (Elizabeth, SOC/ANT/SWK, and Treasurer of the NCCFT). It’s Jai Ho/You Are My Destiny as re-imagined by Pussycat Dolls. It strikes me as somehow appropriate for the lead-in to Thanksgiving week. It is of cultural fusions and appropriations (albeit nonlethal ones) turned into entertainment. And yet it captures me with a kind of deeply felt connectedness to things beyond myself. Maybe it captures you too.
Now, for the truly moving, click the link to see the official video for Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire, the movie from whence it originally came: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRC4QrUwo9o.
