Luckily, till now, no ultra-right political party in India has had the "bright" idea of playing its "rightful" role - of projecting all this as a grand and a nefarious Christian conspiracy, clandestinely orchestrated by the Pope himself! For, lo behold! if truth be un-funnily told, the domestic help in question, Sangita Richards, is a poor, "converted" Christian - sired by the ancestral, fastest sperm from the Hindu fold. Who in his "right" mind, a self-proclaimed "more-your-mamma's-boy-than-you" supra-nationalist fundamentalist, would let this "God-gift" slip from his slippery hands - especially when the national elections in India are lurking around an inconvenient corner. What a spectacle that would have been! Or still could be, if not nipped in the bud by both the governments on this and that side of the "sorry but no sorry--I am more of an ass than you--I no take your pizza, you no like my curry" saga.

"There is nothing more horrifying than stupidity in action." - Jawaharlal Nehru (1st Prime Minister of India)

Some naive "ever-right" groups in the US are yet sticking by this sticky wicket, well played by our dear sis gone amiss, in America. In their sad defense, it may be said that of course, these self-righteous folks thereof have not an inkling of what they are up against. That this tale in which they have naively stuck their tail, has been the tried and time-tested, cooked-up "corny" curry with a flurry readily served in America by my dear "fishy" countrymen, to stay in this Richie-Rich land of plenty. In the process, making many a "gora" - white man - a monkey.

But "all's well that ends well", as the bard said. However, few if any, now days in this internet jamboree, would cackle with Shakespeare - not in India, at least. We Indians are far too busy casting cast-out devils, all the way in, on the anvil of our neighbor's till, to spare a momentary laugh at our ignorant selves.

Lest the joke settles in too deeply to be funny anymore, it is imperative that both sides work hard at rebuilding trust again, with perhaps the Americans having to work that much harder at making amends - that too visibly, turning turtle over the incoming blind bends. For, here in India, to date the common dark-skinned lot, as too the thick-skinned intellectual hotshot, feels much betrayed, unfairly played by their white-skinned kin in America. And, we all know how fond of melodrama we Indians are, if the loyal following of millions for the make-believe Bollywood films is any indication; then, the Americans have to perforce learn to do a song and a dance, perhaps a long drawn one at that - literally - to "get" India.

Otherwise, billions will be lost on both sides of the show.

Metaphorically, as well as mathematically.

Methinks!

"Unless India stand up to the world, no one will respect us. In this world, fear has no place. Only strength respects strength."-- Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam (Nuclear Scientist, 11th President of India).
