Thoughts in Book Form


A book is like a garden carried in the pocket -Chinese Proverb

Having a glimpse of one’s creative ideas in book form is a greatest thrill, a budding author would like to experience at any cost. It is like a mother seeing her newly delivered infant for the first time. Though web magazines now present ample opportunities for the budding poets and writers to get their works published, books in paper always have a special aura. But unfortunately as literary works, especially poetry fail to succeed commercially, publishers hardly take the risk of publishing them. Keeping this in mind, Indian Ruminations in tie up with Roots & Wings Publication is planning to bring out an anthology of poetry.

The anthology will include the poems of all the poets who had been included in the first twenty four issues of Indian Ruminations. Every poet will be represented by a small profile and one or two poems. The poets who show their willingness to be the part of the project are expected to co-operate with this by buying ten copies of the book in reduced price and send their money in advance. This effort will give a rare opportunity to make all the writers of Indian Ruminations, published writers. Roots & Wings will also take care of the publicity and review of the book. Poets, who like to be included, please send a mail to the editor confirming it. More information will be sent soon. Two more projects, a collection of stories and an essay collection are also in the planning.

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.
