The Images Transcend Time – P A Noushad, Kerala


“You came to it very slowly yet you achieved it as your whole life deserved it nonetheless than the poetry you reached”, we also whisper the same with Diana Hambardzumyan.  I felt the rhythm of music, the light of spirituality and the touch of images sparkle in the works of Tomas Transtromer when I went through them. In “The Half Finished Heaven” Transtromer makes life and death sit face to face and uplifts our spirit to the spiritual horizon. Windows and stones(1972), Baltics(1975), The Half Finished Heaven(2001),The Great Enigma(2004), For the Living and the Dead(2005),The Deleted World(2006),The Sorrow Gondola(2010) are the works of Transtromer which have made him to sit at  the zenith of  fame. The silent nature of Sweden has inspired his imagination. Poet Sachidanandan has translated some of his works into Malayalam. Ayyappapanikkar and Balachandran Chullikkad have also introduced Transtromer to the people of Kerala. The works of Transtromer have been translated into more than sixty languages of the world. He began to write poems first at the age of thirteen when he was studying at Sodra Latin School. In 1954, when he was 23 his first collection 17 Dikter was released in Swedish language, including seventeen of his first poems. Transtromer is a must read poet of our generation.

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.
