We caught Kingdom of Heaven, Ridley Scott's latest war-epic, this weekend. A story of the crusades, New York Times describes it as An Epic Bloodletting Empowered by Faith.

It's also a spring-release which implies the movie has missed its mark.

Nevertheless, one is left to ponder the power of Jerusalem that inspires such intense covetousness among the competing armies of monotheism.

What is modern India's equivalent of Jerusalem? Is our own tryst with destiny in our colonial past, or are there still more to be had? What overarching objective will inspire our people out of their sloth and into our own promised land?
