Second Choice – Gowri B, Kerala


The world of real had given
me a chance
to choose “the perfect”
The sky where I can see another
The sky with no birds with sound,
no words of expressed Love
The only silence of deep ocean
hidden within me and you!
My second choice

The brain turned sharp to you
“the perfect” for me,
with all our abnormality of being a common brilliant.
The marching of loud laugh kicked and passed on the wall,
like a cartoon as always you were passed.

The feast of similarities presented
in the long dining
waiting to be ticked and send
to the kitchen of brain
to get well cooked
for upcoming days and nights.

At last when the coin to spin reached my hand
to take a second chance.
The world of real shouted to take the second choice,
don’t know why
My mind still wanders in the
“Imperfect First”

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.
