Change your unfair ways. Get ready to face the climate Change


“Climate change is happening – the world is already 1.1°C warmer than it was at the onset of the industrial revolution, and it is already having a significant impact on the world, and on people’s lives. And if current trends persist, then global temperatures can be expected to rise by 3.4 to 3.9°C this century, which would bring wide-ranging and destructive climate impacts.” That’s the blatant warning from the international community ahead of the 2019 UN Climate Change Conference, known as COP25.

Kerala has felt the cold hands due to irregularities and unusual weather experiences. The flood experiences in the 2018 and 2019 had alarmed the need for an alternative method of construction and living in the State. Various reports opine that deforestation and change in land use patterns are the reasons for the devastating floods, which are now becoming an annual affair. We believe that the situation needs to be reviewed with our waste management practices too. The unfair practices of dumping the waste into water bodies have in a way worsened the situation by obstructing the easy water route to sea. The use and reuse strategy shall be strictly followed by every citizen as a responsibility to mankind. Kerala Government, have decided to ban the manufacturing, sale and storage of single-use plastic products from January 1, 2020. The bold step by the Government shall be strengthened by owning up of the strategy by the general public.

Let us join hands to save mankind!

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.
