Discovering myself – Christina Alex


It was a long lost vision, a dream,
That flew away along with the stream.
It seemed like the thing I’ve always wanted,
The path to which still seemed so haunted.
I was living a life that wasn’t mine,
Hiding my true self in order to shine
I experienced a feeling I never before had,
A feeling that seemed to guide me through good and bad.
I felt like a kite without a string,
A bird that flew without its wings.
My life seemed perfect, I knew no sorrow,
Never valued today, always waited for tomorrow.
But now I’ve realized that life’s no fairy tale,
I’ve seen situations that have made me pale.
I thought that I would never make it through,
I was walking on the lines that someone else drew.
Finally I have regained my sense,
And the past is now merely a tense.
I never thought I would make my way back,
But I did it by discovering what I lack..
I have lost a lot, but that’s just fine,
As I’m finally living a life that’s truly mine.

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.
