Poesis – Reena Prasad

spot_imgspot_img

Moonlighting muses creep through inner bookshelves
Side stepping their illusionary shadows, I wait for night
Chiding them gently for sneaking inside
Greedily absorbing the inner glints of hushed words
their perceptive feelers penetrate my unseen whorls
They insist on sliding through my soft tunnels
Trolling me in with their bait of wanton delights
I yield, letting them romp with my soul strings
Playing with memories of lost bouts of sleep
Till they beg me
To release them from my pen……

Between the ornate presswood bed
And the simple wooden desk,
A window remains ever open
The creak-less calm lulling
The eager thought bubbles
Into a soft, lapping wavelet of dreams.
As the satiated room goes quiet, I rise
Pushing back the sleepily entreating arms with ease
And walk steadily towards the moonlit patch
Spotlighting the blank sheet
On which my pen sleeps…..

The window stares
At the dim street lights
-The eerie eyes of the cold night.
Sporadic gusts tug at the careless knot
Releasing my impatient tresses
Like a grateful stole falling over the starkness,
Comforting and cradling shivering bodies
Consumed by dreamless fatigue
Far removed from winter’s charms-
Hot coffee and a book
And the pen begins to weep…

  1. Wonderful personall
    y experince what has been said on those wonderful last few lines”Like a grateful stole falling over the starkness,
    Comforting and cradling shivering bodies
    Consumed by dreamless fatigue
    Far removed from winter’s charms-
    Hot coffee and a book
    And the pen begins to weep”

    Nice poem indeed.

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.
