Che – Premji

spot_imgspot_img

Premji

Smile fire,
Soul storm,
The most
Handsome man
Lived on earth!

Lived for,
Sacrificed self
For us…
The have-nots…

But,
They label him
On new beverages…
New cigars…
Caps and clothes
He is a brand…

Sad,
A great warrior,
Getting killed
By the claws of
A great vulture
Named Globalization…
Real cultural
Seduction!

  1. Good one Premji….Sad that they are making the max out of che….No wonder why the sanctity of the Red is fading these days or may be for ages….

  2. Now i can see clearly why it is said “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” ! It’s the writer’s admiration for Che-guevara that allows him to see the most handsome man ever in the revolutionary leader. I repeatedly look at his photographs and cant agree to that. The writer also sees globalization as a vulture and finds the leader’s image in beer bottles, a “sacrilege”. But there is no mention of many organizations/groups who have made a brand of Che much earlier. I presume this is what we call “progressive” literature !

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.
