Another old song.. – Tara G Menon


Memories that give colours to my solitude
Voices of past, filling my silent room
Your gifts, that I’ll treasure a lifetime
They’ll be my possessions, most priced

An anchor that binds my boat of thoughts
From drifting away into turbulent seas
A confidente, I pour my soul to
When this big, bad world threatens me

Keep me bound in your thread, invisible
For my still mind is easily rippled
Don’t let go, even if I say so
For any other way, I don’t know.

  1. Hi Tara: Beautiful poem. Memories: A world to seek refuge, when the artificial reality hinders. Captivating and evoking. Congrats.!!

  2. What can i say of this miniature of shining pearl. We are all bound by threads connected. some our life blood, our only left joy. some makes us a burden. some of which we are enslaved. Three cheers.

  3. @ Kamala : Yes Memories provide refuge when you are left without a shelter in the heat of the world.Thanks for reading.
    @Darsana : “We are all bound by threads connected”,yes,bound tightly to some and maybe loosely to others,Yet bound together.Thanks for the comment @Maju chettan : Thank you @D Thank you for reading

  4. Something to hold on to in life and so true your memories can not be taken from you. Lovely poem enjoyed reading it.

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.
