A Royal Death – Sujoy Bhattacharya, Mumbai


Who can avoid the inevitable ? I would invite him
with cordiality to give him sumptuous food to
feast on in an artistic way . I shall give him a cozy
throne to sit on ! A floral shower to give him a warm
welcome ! Whatever awkward he might appear to
look at , my mortal eyes would praise his beauty
delineating with the fancy of a poet ! Whatever pain
might I have felt , I would not allow my smiling face
to deform a bit! I would sing a song eulogizing his
countenance with the ebullient vivacity of throbbing
life ! My kith and kin , near and dear ones would
welcome him with a chorus psalm adoring him with
the garland moist with the dew of life’ s eternal
exuberance elegant ! My funeral procession
would spray elation with joyful ,non- lachrymal
moaning , mourning without sobbing and tears !
He will bow down his morose face in shame and tears

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.
