Midnight Thought – Paavni Agarwal, Bengaluru


“Its 12 am,
and mom thinks you are asleep,
yet you lie here,
but you are not gleaming at me.
What makes you think you can’t shine?
Why do you feel so low?
You are not incapable,
I know you too can glow.
You say you are not like me,
I believe it though,
you are you, and you can shine,
even if you have failed twenty times in a row.
So close your eyes now,
And dream your favourite dream.
The journey is tough I know,
It is a task upstream.
But you will reach,
and fly too,
because if a ball of dust can shine,
So can you.
So goodnight my child,
Don’t think beyond joy,
some day you will shine.”
said the stars to the boy.

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.
