Gandhiji says ‘Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever’


“I’m a lover of my own freedom, and so I would do nothing to restrict yours” – Mahatma Gandhi

Father of the nation, our Gandhiji, well-known for his non-violent fight and simple living is an evergreen icon of India for its flights and fights. His teachings are taught in schools to incur good morality and principle to the upcoming generations. But the relevant question arises how often we live Gandhiji. It seems the teachings of Gandhi ji are confined only to text books and his birthday a mere holiday.  We the people in the era of development live a world of all sorts of problems such as population growth, unemployment, poverty, racial discrimination, insecurity, economic inequality, social injustice, corruption etc. in addition to the globalization issues. The time has surpassed that we think about the best available solutions to the issues which best suit our need. The best suited solution for the above problems of contemporary world is to follow Gandhi’s principles. Gandhi’s profuse writings, speeches and talks cover every conceivable aspects of Indian life of his time as well as present world. ‘My life is my message’ is an all-time message by Gandhiji to the upcoming generations to preach and practice truth and non-violence in life. The simple living he followed throughout his life is a path towards democracy which solves every single issues we face today. Living simple is not a simple task. But let us even try.

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.
