Bap Arree bap!
I would have tought that all that would have changed since Jarawal's times...:-(
Anyhow the FM10 is definitly not "lowly".. My daughter went from Beijin to Urumqui with her school group and she was the only one who could still take pictures with her FM10 after a while (batteries mostly, high consumption with auto focus and inclosed flash system, plus sand and dust in the lenses rings)...
All my three children have a FM10 (I believe in learning the "hard way"..:-):-):-))
How much is a ruppee today? I'll check that!.
When I was first in russia you couldn't rely either on russian films or process... Then people from Fuji must have had a special deal because when I returned there were minilabs everywhere...
Here, in Paris, you give your film to be processed in a few hours and you get your negatives, the paper pictures.... And a CD with all your pictures scanned at high resolution... Quite neat and easy for computer use...:-)
But we are in a "picture frenzied" society...! Abd don't have exactly the same problem as in India... But I believe a lot in your country (well... when the M.P.'s will stop trying to be Bahra Bapudjees !)...
Do you know the cartoons of Chandi (used to be in the Hindusthan Standard) ?
For the other question...:-) Follow the lead... in french!
