A Dreaming Rock – Sasidharan Cheruvattath, Kerala

spot_imgspot_img

Sasidharan Cheruvattath

A midnight dream
of a post meridian sun
upon a redundant shore,
of lurking iconoclasts,
behind introspective rocks
ruminating to set free
the incarcerated icons,
waiting for the idolaters.

Voiceless,
in the bottomless lifelessness
battered by traumatic waves
of the asphyxiated truth
a silent survival’s self persecution,
reminisced,
its freedom in an earlier birth
as an innocent infant,
smiling and sobbing,
heard in its deep-rooted womb.

It walking the sands,
chasing, racing crabs
that scripted on the smooth, wet sand
trailing the skirting sea,
expectant with tear-laden clouds;

Now the shores are abandoned
even by sauntering ghosts.

Shedding skins of time
like hidden molting snakes,
the rock’s craving for love
pealed off, it remained
stuck in its last thought
wedged tightly in its molecules.

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.
