Smile

spot_imgspot_img

I use to wear it so simply
The radiant armor, my pretty smile
One can see me as warrior
While I wear it brilliantly

I sometimes may conquer hearts
Consent, console and pardon
And sometimes I dagger hearts
And deflagrate the mind too fast

It won’t hide my glowing face
Nor it veil over my wish
But it hides my lurid look
My weeping eyes and face at times

Yet I stick to show my will
Brave and bold and stronger still
Hence I wear the armor! SMILE!
That glows my eyes and fervent heart

  1. smile is really a
    potico of a passive soul,

    Brave and bold and stronger still
    Hence I wear the armor! SMILE!

  2. Oh your first work is in first person huh… Good work Sandhya ….BTW all these days I never thought you were hiding a “lurid look” 🙂

  3. Smile…… the greatest metaphor available only to humans, the others being in the writers / artists world, the eternal space. The poem magnifies the vision aptly..

  4. Lovely Sandhya..smile doesnt cost a penny but it conquers everyones heart and also brings life to some one who needs it most.
    love

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.
