In the pursuit of You – Aparna Prabhu, Karnataka


It’s been an year since you left.
You left, leaving a trail of memories.
Following the trail, I found myself
stuck in a labyrinth.
My desperate cries remained unheard.
I stumble on the fragments of your soul,
that are scattered in all directions.

The morning dew on my cheeks,
reminds me of our first kiss.
Your smell still lingers in our room.
I can feel you in the evening breeze,
playing with my curls.
The sleeve of your shirt,
always asks me for a dance.
These things have now become
the guardians of my memories.

I look at your photo with teary eyes.
You try reaching my face to
wipe my tears.
I gaze at the night sky.
The stars have aligned to form a curve.
Maybe it’s you who is smiling at me.

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.
