A Sluggard in a fiery storm – Jesse Smiles Dondapati, Bangalore


lightning_stormOn one unfortunate cloudy morn’ I awoke,

To drizzling skies on high plains about,

I set out on a slothful realm of a speedy clock

Hasting to revive this weary soul commissioned,


On the way, the fiery storm broke,

Pouring down as never before; my further route

Drowned in a flash, and I trudged a mound in soak,

As memories flashed from sluggish past of a life wasted…


Waited I as the storm seems to go ghastly amok,

Now sheltered in an old church tower on the brow,

With wait of destitute, hope of an imbrued cloak,

Abroodedlife, wasted in ruminating sorrow


In time, ravaged walls buoyed afloat, oh look!

Shielded inside is my soul, my pride

Rested as the chief guest: like a foreign bloke,

Lasting those final breaths as lazy, cozy and sluggard…

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.
