Shajahan Madampat is a critic and commentator when it comes to Indian politics and culture. But he is a loyal, pusillanimous government employee of UAE when it comes to the policies of the country where he stays. This is nicely written PR for his employer. If it was held in India, he would write about the utter farce and sheer meaninglessness of such a stage-managed exercise. He would write how a country which kills its neighbours with bombs and impose unjust economic blockade on another neighbour can talk about love, humanism etc.
