Come Back to the Basic, Simple and Original Life


Multitudes of incidents, activities, movements, beliefs, problems, crises, personalities, climatic conditions etc. play together by surpassing extra controls to bring in political, economical, cultural and environmental changes. Though nobody can predict changes in the modern times, one thing is sure that behind most of the changes in the world there are human activities. Of course we have reached a stage where the demon on the shoulders is tightening its grip and leaders of the world stand still perplexed.

Whether it be the impact of globalization and its grave economic crises or the extend of environmental degradation, all have started to take us through a negative direction where the vision forward is very much hackneyed and puzzling. What can the great writers and thinkers who are supposed to guide the generations through messy times do now?

Human tendency always pushes him to experiment, explore and rebel. It is of course needed to a certain extend as long as they are done with strong values. But whenever they become misadventures and take humanity to the brink of destruction, it is only the call to come back to the basics or nature or nature’s law will bring in hope again. Now also it is time for humans to come back to the basics by letting off all greediness to earn, exploit, enjoy, explore, experiment more and more and more.

Great wisdom belongs to all generations. Hence it is no doubt; greediness is the root cause of all evils. It is high time for the new generation to reset their attitude towards politics, economy, environment and life itself by setting the right priorities and coming back to the basic, simple and original life.

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.
