That German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock is a real eager beaver, isn’t she?
She goes on an official visit to India, is überpünktlich (arrives ahead of schedule), and then unceremoniously leaves the plane without anyone there to ceremoniously greet her. Now she has hurt feelings or something.
“She Was A Little Early”: German Envoy On Protocol Row Over Minister Visit – Amid the protocol-related controversy on social media, the German Ambassador to India, Philipp Ackermann, yesterday said the German Foreign minister’s plane landed early in Delhi.
A German politician’s unfortunate slip twenty years ago, “children instead of Indians,” certainly didn’t work.
Demographics can be a bitch.
Germany aims to ease visa process for India’s IT workers – Berlin wants to encourage information technology experts from India to come and work in Germany. The plan would be to make it easier for them to come to the country with their families.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Sunday that his government wants to ease the path for information technology experts from India to obtain work visas in Germany.

As claimed in the book “From Caligari to Hitler: A Psychological History of the German Film.” But no force in the universe could possibly have foreshadowed, much less foreseen this latest greatest new and refreshing delicious taste treat snack: Hitler Ice Cream.
From India. I guess you had to have been there. To get it, I mean.
Hitler Ice Cream. Mad, I mean made like no other. This gives “you scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream” a whole new meaning.
The ice cream packaging has a photo of Hitler along with a Swastika-shaped top hat, which is somewhat at odds with his furious expression and full military paraphernalia.
Professors are notoriously smart. Especially here in Germany.
Take this lady here: An Indian student (the male kind) was denied internship in the biochemistry department at the University of Leipzig by Professor Annette something (the female kind) because of his country’s rape problem. You can reread that if you want to but I ain’t making it up.
Email: “Unfortunately, I don’t accept any Indian male students for internships. We hear a lot about the rape problem in India, which I cannot support. I have many female students in my group, so I think this attitude is something I cannot support.”
“I didn’t know how much the name would disturb people.”
He added that to him Hitler was just the nickname given to his business partner’s grandfather, who was known for his “strict nature.”
Nicht zum ersten Mal gibt es in Indien Ärger um den Namen Hitler. Mal nannte ein Restaurantbetreiber sein neues Café “Hitler’s Cross”, mal nahm ein Händler eine Bettwäsche mit dem Namen “The Nazi Collection”, bedruckt mit Hakenkreuzen, ins Sortiment auf.
