If ever


If ever my shadows leave me,

and I’ll know that tomorrow it will,

I will plant some mango trees for

the people, I’d leave my hefty will.

If ever the Abdiel presents before

my naked eyes and touch my hands,

I’ll hold his hands tight, and ask to

leave my body in my beloved’s hands.

If ever the Orion asks me in

the cold moonlight of the Indian plains

to come and join after I am passed

I’ll pull it with a rope to my low plains.

because I know death is the destiny,

we all share, it can’t be still, be only at all

for all the moments we lived and loved,

those were not to end on death, not at all.

Because till it is passed over and over

my love, to the last heir of the human race,

and then even when the last heir dies,

that race will not be the final race.

Because it is a revival, we live when

we live when we know death occurs once,

and revival it is when we also know that

not only death but even life occurs once.

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.
