The Chandelier above us – Jazar Shahul, Kerala


The yellow glow of the chrome lamp,
Softened the contrast on her delicate face,
A tiny wisp of smile brought her cute dimples,
Where I longed to give a soft peck,
And I see it deepen even more shyly.

Sound of the waves crashing against the rocks,
Startled us every now and then impatiently,
Reflecting the inner tension we were trying to hide,
But it failed so much that each impact the wave made,
Inched our minds closer as we secretly wished.

Yet, we were drifting apart farther than ever,
A lightning from the sky flashed down upon us,
Breaking that fragile thread of bond we had,
Also shattering the chandelier which hung above us,
Eclipsing the beam of light on her face forever.

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.
