The Fuhrer wasn’t happy this week. Reports have been pouring in about the advent of a potential rival —someone who could topple his position and challenge his superiority in the world of glamour. To make things worse the spies have confirmed that the reports have been completely true and the man from Ranchi has indeed hogged limelight since his sensational performance braving an injury earlier this month.
Infuriated, agitated, and tense, the Fuhrer summoned the entire Who’s Who of his army. The panic-stricken men — the much-feared Gestapos among them — cancelled their Sunday appointments and rushed to the Fuhrer’s office. He was in such foul mood that the entire Hitler household and the neighbourhood had gathered around the office to eavesdrop.

This is what followed.
