Katrina Kaif of Bollywood

New Orleans     Finally after a 40 plus hour schlep from almost 8000 miles away in the world, I found myself straggling home to New Orleans and the bounty of spring in the city.  I picked up a lucky break changing planes in Chicago and wildly ended up on the same flight with a bunch of folks from ACORN coming back from a meeting in the windy city.  Getting a chance to finally see some of the pictures that weird and slow connections in India and Bangladesh wouldn’t quite let me access, one of the things I discovered was exactly how wild and amazing it was to have Bollywood’s Katrina at the ACORN International Eco-Fair in Dharavi a week ago.  
    I don’t think we’ve ever made the celebrity pages, so let me share this with you so that we all have the full perspective on just how amazing this was:

April 04, 2009, (Sawf News) – Kids could get to play with Katrina Barbie in September, when the doll hits the market, even as Salman Khan fans wonder when they will get to see Katrina Bhabi?
Here is the sweet irony: While rich kids can play with a Katrina Barbie, poor kids can play with the real Katrina Kaif! Rag pickers of Dharavi recently got to do just that thanks to the NGO — Acorn Foundation.
The tykes not only got to meet the glamorous and endearing Bollywood star they danced and sung songs with her.
“The slum kids enjoyed meeting her and they danced and sung along with her,” a source tells us, making us extremely jealous and desperately hoping for a Benjamin Button type turn of events.
“The kids also showed her paintings and handicrafts specially made by them and Katrina couldn’t stop raving about their talent. Katrina spoke to the children at length and encouraged them to follow their dreams. Just like she has followed hers.” the source rubbed it in further.

Not only good films, the best of brands are also wooing Kat. “This year she has been the most favorite choice of the brands. She has been chosen as a brand ambassador of a famous jewelry brand Nakshatra and the campaign was titled Goddess of Luck.
