A night to remember


Stay up all night with me for once, I say

Don’t complain we have work the very next day

Step out and behold the magic of moonbeams

Our banal rooftop is now someplace of fairy tales and dreams

The crisp cold wind washes away the traces

Of exhaustion and distress on our faces

Just then, the moon hides behind the clouds

For now, so do our worries and doubts

Annoyance fades and amazement lights up your eyes

As you look up and admire the starry night sky

The date hues of black and blue, so full of mystery

We get carried away in the nature’s artistry

The silence soothes the soul so broken and weak

And heals all the wounds of which we never speak

The dusky night with its twinkling stars

Become the secret healer of all our scars

Rediscovering the light within and again things feel right

All the glory of the majestic night

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.
