Made it back from India! I will post more thoughts on what happened as things distill in my head.
I just wanted to quickly share one of the more vivid “political” scenes I saw while touring India. When we arrived in Delhi we were given a tour of the city and we went through the embassy district. We went by lots of nice-looking embassies: Canada, Japan, China, etc. We were reaching the end of the road and the driver said “… and here is the most powerful embassy.” This, of course, was the US embassy. You couldn’t tell whether it was a nice-looking embassy or not because all you could see were the barricades and legions of armed guards surrounding the place.
I’m not trying to dive into the cause of this or anything more in-depth than the visual and emotional reaction to this image. It sends a powerful message.
