The human propensity to go full tilt at windmills, a la Don Quixote, is not limited by gender -- as anyone seeing Indian news channels focusing on a forthcoming film can attest. Among other grievances, a section of women protesters deemed "Padmavati" an attack on royalty (in republican India, no less), underlining how many of us can do much with history -- except learn from it.
