The Journey Continues…


Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it. -Greg Anderson

Human life is a journey: a journey within and a journey without. Life undergoes changes and metamorphoses physically, intellectually and spiritually through this journey. This change is also quite obvious in the subsequent books of a same author. Hence literature and literary pursuits do not escape from this phenomenon. Present issue is the second anniversary issue of Indian Ruminations. The web journal and the team have witnessed several ups and downs and the inevitable metamorphosis in this phase, but the journey continues successfully with the relentless support of our readers, contributors, well wishers and of course the underlying philosophy of Indian Ruminations.

The remarkable achievements in these two years that could be noted here are the successful conduct of two days Indian Ruminations Literary Festival at Vilopilly Samskriti Bhavan, the four literary awards given away, maintaining steadily a high rate of viewership and of course introducing and encouraging hundreds of debutant writers from across India so far. But on the flip side unnecessary delay, casual editing and technical problems are to be weeded out. And one of the important unfulfilled program in last year’s agenda is Indian Ruminations Anthology which is on the anvil now.

We like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all our readers, contributors and supporters. You are always welcomed to send your suggestions to the editor’s email and we are more than willing to ‘ring out the old and ring in the new’ whenever possible. We expect your continued enthusiasm and support throughout the next twelve months through your contribution, sincere reading, reviewing and of course bringing in new literary lovers.

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.
