Diversity in Life and Writing


“Centre of equal daughters, equal sons,

All, all alike endear’d, grown, ungrown, young or old,

Strong, ample, fair, enduring, capable, rich,

Prennial with the Earth, with freedom, Law and Love…”                                                                                 – Whitman

Diversity or variety is a prerequisite for the sustainability of life. Quite often revolutionists, reformists and religious and political thinkers are directed towards mono culture in their attempt to establish a utopian State. The egocentric globalized economy also strives to spread mono civilization, culture and language for easy exploitation. It may happen due to various factors: the powerful culture’s arrogant belief that they are the best and they always do the right so much so the new political economy’s choice to go for the best in the labour market (the best is identified as those who satisfy the fixed standard set by the business class). This uniformity is absolutely marring the mechanics of the existence of life. When variety is lost however small it is, the balance of life is drastically affected. So when one strives to bring about uniformity in anything in life it will backfire in many ways because nature decides its balance. Poetry and literature must be always inclusive of all cultures, sect of people, ways of life etc. Inclusive doesn’t always mean approval; it means reflection, a critical reflection whenever needed. Indian Ruminations is also here to preserve and reflect all that is variety in life and writing, however meager they are. In every issue of Indian Ruminations this variety writing and topics are given priority so that all voices and all aspects of life are heard by all sections of people.

Revisiting Ambedkar’s Vision of ‘United States of India’: Can It Stand as Modern India’s Viable Alternative?

In April 2020, Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor waded into the debate, arguing that a Presidential system would prevent the “one-man show” that the Indian system has evolved into. The proponents of this line of thought also cite the United States' (relative) political stability as one of the key reasons to support their argument. The proposal challenges the Indian Constitution’s “Basic structure doctrine” decided by the Supreme Court in the Kesavananda Bharathi case. However, this requires further examination: a Presidential form of government might fix some of India’s political gridlock, but it may also open Pandora’s Box, releasing a whole wake of issues in its place. This includes a politically biased Supreme Court and horse-trading of MPs on a scale unheard in Indian politics.
