Beyond the moat & the high gates a long winded drive leads you to a castle shrouded in mist.
Deep in its cavernous interior is a room called the Library where four people sit making a plan, amidst books bought by faithful retainers.
Matriarch - They are demanding that we at least try & look intelligent.

Heir - That’s why I’m saying Mamma, I need my own Puppet. Let him speak. I only want to smile & wave.

Matriarch- There’s no one like him. All too dangerous & ambitious now. We can’t take a chance.
Son in law - I could help you know.
Daughter - Not him Mamma. He’ll be even more insufferable.

Matriarch- To think I could have gone back but I stayed in this hot, dusty, dirty country & worked to uplift these ungrateful pagans ...
Heir - To think I could have been lying on some beach with all the money in the world at my disposal.
Instead I’m trying to be this Hindu, going to temples, saying that I’m married to a political party & expected to spout confusing figures of that fighter plane whatsitsname ...
Daughter- Because of you two I’m stuck here too. Spare To The Heir In Perpetutity.… keeping myself relevant by fumigating stadiums for your rallys.

Son In Law - I could be of help you know. I’ve also started visiting temples.

Retainer - Sir, your name is of great disadvantage. You’re destined to remain a sidekick.

There is a tunnel to the airport where a plane is ready & waiting. You could leave tonight. No one can touch you!
Matriarch - We know that.
Our Wazir also has the same arrangements. But we have ruled Hindustan before & we will rule her again.

Heir- I think the people are not as stupid as they were in your time Mamma
It’s all very exhausting & I can’t do it.
They make so much fun of me
Matriarch- That is why I never spoke & they thought of me as this strong, silent, white woman firmly & efficiently running the country.
You are a big boy, with big responsibilities.
No, not to Hindustan, it’s future & aspirations.
But to the plane parked in Dubai.
The luxury apartments across the world.
To the media, the judiciary, the bureaucracy who will leave us & go to that Modi if they don’t get their goodies.
A lot rests on you my son.
So go look at those pictures of that mountain Kailash whatever & get your story right next time.
