Rhyming Rain – Thara D’Souza , Kerala


 Thara D’ Souza

Spattering and sputtering sprinkling the trees

Pattering and pattering splattering the sheathes

Shattering and scattering splashing the panes

Rain like grains drains my strain.

Slanting and canting flipping the fields

Tilting and tipping dropping on leaves

Rippling and riffling bringing the bubbles

Rain, like grace erases my daze

Editorial Team of Indian Ruminations.


  1. Like the very rain itself torrentially pouring on a tin roof, with its metrical clatter, this one batters away the inertia of matter and bolsters up my spirit. Thank you for the amazing rhyme and rhythm.

  2. Thara, your poem is so full of every thing about the rain…I miss it in hot and humid Dubai. Do keep writing.

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.
