Only great literature cultivate cultured minds

When people have integrity  they have to perceive and reflect reality as it is. No mask or euphemism or nationalism will blur or distort or blot out the truth. Usually writers and thinkers are known for integrity in their writing and they must be so, as they are the conscience of their respective nations. So we are compelled to write and record here that India is a mad nation as far as how Indian males treat their counterparts is concerned.

It is a known fact that for centuries Indians have been hypocrites in treating their women: as goddesses in their temples and as slaves and mistresses in other places. But now it seems that the violence against women has suddenly escalated leaps and bounds in the recent times much more than any other times; especially sexual violence. Mere condemnation or legal fight or revelation won’t solve this problem; rather the deep rooted rottenness in our social life must be found out, cleansed and treated.

Whatever it is high time, the whole of India, four pillars of democracy, civil groups, educational institutions and of course writers and thinkers come together in a war time urgency to treat this evil. Literature has a major responsibility in this regard. We think that sexual violence against women must be the major theme of the forthcoming works of art as it is the foremost crisis India is facing today. The younger generation have to be won back to love literature as only great literature cultivate minds to be cultured.

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.
