December Mornings -J.George, Chennai


Early with the cock-a-doodle-doo, the broom goes,
Swish, swish, swish.
Echoes rising in chorus, the integrity of a closed neighborhood,
The wind trickled few jack fruit leaves,
Smiles on ground, they lay along with the tears of transpiration.
Frolic on the night’s lap; mango leaves join as well,
Wording possession of the air.

Always it is lush green summer mornings
Canopied with the December fog, thick mist, clogged, here.
Aroma of the Mountain Snow White roses on early drops of dew,
Like the sweet smell of love, from moon’s eros, along
Petrichor wafting, with the broom’s swift clearing;
Awakens the soul’s sleep.

For the churchgoers an offering early,
I sweep the summer to barren winter
Penancing for the crude sins of the Holy Wind.

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.
