Face to face
In an international conference I delivered a sentimental lecture against the super power of the world and the present scenance of more then one hundred representatives and heads of various countries, I vehemently criticized the USA and erstwhile U.S.S.R. and their policies by name. After delivering the lecture, the representatives of various countries met me and praised me for my courageous venture and said that you have spoken rightly. One of the heads of a country who was a revolutionary youth (who was later assassinated) came to me and said that whatever I had said was right, 'but I want to say that you are not afraid of super powers while as whoever was present in the conference are all afraid of America.' then he came nearer to me and whispered that he too was afraid of America.
