Great Writing


1091650_78779836Literature is not always the faithful reflection of contemporary society and life. If it is so, then there won’t be much difference between literature and history. Much of the reality in life is negative and uninspiring and though they have to be known to get corrected, sometimes they represent darker sides of life which may lead to despair. Great books do much more than reflection of life. They bring fresh thoughts and set new standards and ideals and thereby inspire millions to come out of the shackles of life. The writings of Rabindranath Tagore, Khalil Gibran, William Wordsworth, Pablo Neruda and many more belong to this category. Hence the books that make positive changes in human lives are, no doubt, the greatest books. These are the third category of books mentioned by Sir. Francis Bacon: “a few books are to be chewed and digested.” Besides literary books, some motivational books which teach how to lead a meaningful life play a vital role in society building. Indian ruminations always encourage writings that move life irrespective of their genre.

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.
