Am I stranger to you? – Raju


I became rainbow for you
And you closed your eyes,
I became a melodious song
And you shut your ears,
I became a bed of roses on your path
And you changed your path,
I became spring for you
And you took asylum in winter;

I came to your night
With gentle chillness of moon light,
Whisperings of night rain,
Fragrance of night flowers,
Melodious song of Night lark,
Stars to guard you, and
I became sweet dreams for you
And you stopped sleeping;

I saw you wandering through the
Streets of love
And rushed to you to hold your hands
You vanished in the thin air,
When I became shelter
You went to the streets of uncertainty to strand,
When I came to you with love
You ran away, as if I were an horrible stranger;

I was stupefied on your attitude,
I was burnt on your neglect,
I forgot my songs,
I lost my soul,
My hopes are vanished,
My dreams are shattered,
My heart is dead,
My life is still!

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.
