n dark times, a hero is needed. The year might have started off on a sour note, with Barack Obama leaving the White House, Tej Bahadur Yadav putting the BSF on blast, and the world reluctant to let go of the shitty habits it cultivated in 2016. Even Canada, despite being under the stewardship of the smiling, infallible, woke AF Justin Trudeau, decided to contribute to the mess by making Indian tricolour doormats available on Amazon.

Just as all hope seemed to be lost, Sushma Swaraj, Minister of External Affairs, Defender of the Tiranga, and our Person of the Week, swooped in to make the save. Stock up on some national pride and brush up on the national anthem because at this party, everyone’s gonna be thumping their chests.
