We don't quite know yet what the story line is going to be but we have it on good record that it will feature an Indian actress. The Prime Minister of the largest democracy in the world, did, after all, stand next to Wolverine in Central Park, New York City, in 2014 and say, "May the Force be with you."

Cults provide order and structure to reality. They provide an unambiguous narrative. Star Wars is no different.

The return of Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker to the Star Wars universe after an absence of 32 years is a grand event in itself. Add to this the re-emergence of the Millennium Falcon and Solo's close confidante Chewbacca along with C-3PO and R2D2, and we have another great Stars Wars adventure in the making. Alas, The Force Awakens flatters to deceive the millions of Star Wars fans the world over.
