In Photos: The Life and Work of Kathak Legend Birju Maharaj via @thewire_in
Paris cafe. Waiter wants vaccination proof. I show my certificate from India. He looks at photo printed on it and says disapprovingly, 'But this is not you'. 'Quite right, that's our Dear Leader', I say. 'But why is HIS photo on YOUR certificate?' he asks. I have no answer.
Not just another day at the office for @thewire_in after #PegasusProject Policeman arrived today with inane inquiries. 'Who's Vinod Dua?' 'Who's Swara Bhaskar?' 'Can I see your rent agreement?' 'Can I speak to Arfa?' Asked why he'd come: "Routine check for Aug 15" Strange.
