Farewell, My Memories – Christina Alex, Kerala


Blurred figures zoom by my window,
A few of which I do not recognize,
Yet the bulk of them are those,
That are memories to me in disguise.
Fields, pastures and rivers go by,
Pulling me away from all I hold dear,
Faces in the clouds sneer and jeer,
Knowing my pain of having no one near.
I made the choice of leaving behind,
The world that meant everything to me,
Now a new world I’ve built in my mind,
A world that I hope I will find.
This long journey isn’t tiresome anymore,
It has given me time to regret and reflect,
On all those times I chose to abandon,
That part of my life that I’ chose to neglect.
This train is taking me far away,
From the place where my memories lie,
The figures in front of me sway,
As I bid those happy times goodbye.

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.
