Mindscape -Anil K Prasad, KSA

I wake up after a dream

And I move out into the unconscious

That is spread out in front-

Of my window on

The beautiful desert landscape

Of the neighboring Empty Quarters

That interacts with the senses

And with the tips of tiny icebergs hidden

And ride the boats of the past

To reach the haven of future

On the waves of the present sandy moments

The oars roar with the racy vehicles

On the conscious asphalt

Senses too are conscious

Of the heat and dust and the breeze of the changing season

The dewdrops meditating on the cores of the xerophytes

And bury themselves in the subconscious

The caravans of cars and camels pass

The senses devoting

Themselves to the destination

Of the great landscape

Crossing the mirage of conscious mind

Of the great glasshouse

Splinters blaze on the sandy terrain

Waiting for the rain and rhythm

Of the tiny drops that will moisten  their lips

For the voice of tomorrow

That will open their windows

Showing us the striking landscape

With a  tableau of hues and dunes

That will soothe the soles of  souls

A rosary that turns like a wheel of will

Merging today’s pains and tomorrow’s gains

In the eternities of space and speechlessness…

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.
