As a class we've already noticed the similarities between Tin Drum and Midnight's Children. It's too early to tell but I wonder if Rushdie deliberately sent Aadam to Germany to make a direct allusion to Tin Drum. I wonder if he could have go to any other country but choose Germany purposely. Furthermore it is interesting to think if the use of a character named Oskar is a direct allusion or not.
