I Felt THY Presence !!! – Preethi Padmanabhan


Amidst the not so surprising milieu of mine,
In the surreal melt of it, a real force, I beheld shine!
Aghast was I, for had never, an akin envision,
But what bliss it graced me, for it prophesized a divine fascination!
Ah! I pranced that moment for having felt the cognizance,
Should I say I felt thy presence?
Had never the joy of being abroad,
But that moment strewed me a feeling bruiting abroad!
In the powerless mind game of my milieu,
Gushed in a brisk might, bidding its adieu.
All of a sudden, was a fear disappearance,
Yet again, should I say I felt thy presence?
Solemn and baffled was I,
As to who was alloying dirty mind shy.
Though fantastic seemed my time thereafter,
Yet, it left an unanswered question to ponder.
Sudden marvels began dwelling in my heart; boiling hot,
Should I say, thy presence hit the shot?
As has always been my hope,
I surrendered under the feet of my “POPE”.
Yes, almighty was my only counselor,
Holding truth and trust in him bred all wonders!
So limpid and unambiguous stood proud; my heart,
He was my LORD; whose presence, I did feel,
Whose presence, I would hold fierce,
Whose presence, I would never part.
I wish in every soul, thy hand is present,
For, it is an ELYSIUM beyond a golden sand crescent!

  1. The presence of faith and hope makes your poem not just readable, but definitely feeling as close to the presence of supreme soul. Conjured with words of mystic proportions beautify the milieu, if one does confuses a bit, thats due for the wordcraft. This is one such beautiful thoughts poured as poem. Nice one.

  2. It is indeed true that the presence of the supreme soul guarantees elation in one’s milieu.
    I thank you for your humblest feedback .

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.
