Oh Ruby Flames – Nithya Mariam Kurian

spot_imgspot_img

Oh! Ruby Flames, you mesmerize by

Your golden beauty,

With what you consume,

And you rule where you stand;

Embracing evil and innocence

With those flaming hands

To your burning heart and bleeding amber.

Burning into the depth of darkness

You bring light and life,

Warmth and care, sacrificing yourself

For those praying souls.

With no fear and no care, you

Flow through the deepest oceans too.

Hiding in the care of mother earth’s chest

Dangerously still is your interest.

Virtue or vice, none matters,

For you hold, the wisdom of centuries,

You burned down barns and thick dense woods

And even countries by your strength.

Held in your blazing self,

Love and lives, hate and betrayal

Beauty and deceit, rage and vengeance,

You could never be stopped,

By grand walls, giant gaits or hades on guards.

You bow to none and as no king could be

You are an unbiased executioner:

Great warriors’ and lords’ dearest destroyer.

Earth holds no limits, nor does heaven,

Chaos or even hell at your name,

To your might none could match

And you heed to no reasons:

How I wish to be held in those ruby hands, till

I dissolve into you, to the eternity’s end, still!

  1. Thanks Nithya for the experience. The wild beauty and might of the “unbiased executioner”, its dynamism, power to transform etc…. all have been beautifully sketched !
    Themes like death, fire, snake etc creates a strange feel in human minds… fear on one hand and allurement on the other… fear because it can destroy, and allurement because of the beauty of creativity and truth that they hold. The weaklings look away but the gutsy ones are fascinated by it, and falls in love with it………..”how I wish to be held in those ruby hands, till I dissolve into you, to the eternity’s end, still!.

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.
