Suicide – Sivaprasad V., Kerala

spot_imgspot_img

An act of cowardice when a loser does
Disgrace to kins it brings
He does have the right to live but the right to die is not his
Escaping himself from worldly sorrows is crime he commits

An act of valour when done to eliminate the infidels
Laurels and accolades to the martyr it gives
His is a holy act as salvation his soul attains
Murdering pagans opens him the door to heavens

An act of heroism when a patriot commits to outwit traitors
Sound of sighs and chants reverberates
His is sacrifice unparalleled and flawless
His soul will be spared in the other worlds

An act of redemption when depressed Plaths* embrace
In dreams and letters live scores of such souls
Born they to end themselves but taste eternal honours
As the one who drowned herself in the Ouse**

*Sylvia Plath was a famous American poet who committed suicide at the age of 30.
**Virginia Woolf, the celebrated English author, drowned herself in the River Ouse at Lewes.

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.
