Godlessness – Sujoy Bhattacharya, Mumbai


What a tragedy! I am reviled at for not believing in
the existence of God. My mother prays, with tears
of remorse in her eyes, to her god for forgiving me .
My dad deplores that god will punish me for my
insolent audacity not to believe in pagan faith .
My god-fearing friends carefully fight shy of me
as if I have been suffering from virulent
contagious disease. I saved a drowning girl in
a pond of good depth risking my life. Her theist
mom adored me as a messenger of the god she
worshipped daily. I was driven out as if I was stray
dog while I asked for a glass of drinking water
to a pious old lady. Co – incidentally I saved her
life donating my blood. Recovering from her
illness she blessed me muttering with the words
that I was a living incarnate of her god , Lord Vishnu .
I believe in the religion of humanity. I lead an honest life .
I love the nature as my kith and kin. I am always ready to
help others in distress. So called gods and goddesses
have not been dissatisfied with me for not worshipping
them ,disowning them. I am living a happy and
prosperous life. I eschew the sinful path of life .
I adore morality and humanity. As flowers spread
fragrance indiscriminately, I too love human beings
as my living god. Pagan idols appear in my dream
And regret why their worshippers are not like me –
A true human being, an unfailing worshipper of humanity .

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.
