Something about that crowd was unusual. It was calm and peaceful. Despite the heat and humidity, no one was pushing, yelling or screaming. My first thought at entering a crowd that size would have been the fear of a stampede, but no such apprehension had crossed my mind. Instead, I had felt strangely comfortable in that hot, sweaty mass. And then it dawned on me...

So how does one take over a country in the 21st century? It's a lot simpler than you might think. The great European banker, Mayer Rothschild, summed it up beautifully when he said, "Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who writes the laws" All you need is money, honey. Once you have the cash in hand, here is a simple 10-step guide.

And if you, like me, have been wondering just how in the world Trump (and others in a similar mould) manage to rise to power, you may find The True Believer - Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements by social philosopher Eric Hoffer particularly illuminating.

It came with such calmness and clarity that I wrote it down...

Sometimes the most powerful political commentaries are not made by politicians at all. <em> The Great Dictator</em>, a movie written by, directed by, produced by and starring Charlie Chaplin is proof of the fact.

I was watching Patiala High Court lawyers beat 'Kingpin Kanhaiya' live on TV when my phone rang. A friend of mine wanted to know if I'd like to go along for an 'open class' on nationalism at JNU. One Professor Gopal Guru (no relation of Afzal, I was assured) was going to address a gathering. Though I realized this was probably going to be risky business -- police, protestors, et al -- I decided to go. Because at some point, you just have to check things out for yourself.
