Mother’s Devotion – Anmol Vats, Haryana


Today I am transformed into a lucrative man,
All the restrictions of my life have turned into ban.

Today I have achieved that I dreamt,
But this long list will never have a denouement.

When I spot the old pages of my past,
The first thing that turns me on is grandpa’s podcasts.

Father always considered me as his younger brother,
Quite often he used to say “Son don’t you bother.”

But! Hold on, I can never forget the most pacific and soothing memory that exists in mother’s lap,
Where, I used to have a very comfortable nap.

How ironical is God’s creation.
Life and death occurs without any pre-information.

But God’s irony fades away, when it comes for a mother,
Who’s, next to compressed leather,
This, gets smashed after excessive triturate, but never loses its ability to consolidate.

When I recall my past, which “briskly blew away”,
I feel that I have something to say: someone to appreciate,
Who, throughout her life remained deficit.

I still remember her pervasive style,
That, she used to produce a responsible smile.

She never grabbed the chance to be in front,
Same as a councilor acts when the king accomplishes his interest to hunt.

In my colorful life there is some blank space which would only be filled by mother’s face, with festoons of roses and the blooms of her college life proposals.

Hey Lord! Take away all my valuable assets,
but for once return me mother’s lap where my life subsists.

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.
