Blossom – Augustin Mathew


That is like a blossom
A spirit that enflames you
A love that blossoms at the heart
A beauty that has never been enflamed
I looked at her eyes and saw the world passing by
A story unfolding
A beauty prospering
A life untangling
I was mesmerized to see my life unfold in front of me
It was set in a future far beyond
To a place where we both were at our peak
The old age was looming over us
Deaths rustling could be heard
We both held our hands
And passed through a blossom
And I realized
I am the beetle and she my nectar

Augustin Mathew is a poet from Kerala currently pursuing B.Ed in Mysore after completing his postgraduation. He is passionate to read and write poetry and short stories

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.
