That Loved Flower – Sudama Chandra Panigrahi


Blossomed just now, to her content,
Aromatizing the atmosphere, with her fragrance.
Entices all and sundry, even the conceiver,
Whoever sees her, describes a perfect creation.
Smiles she effortlessly, that showers pearls,
For one smile, bees of all hues gather.

Come bees from every nook and corner,
Roam around her in search of nectar.
Come some with pearls of pen,
Cherish some dream to kiss her with no end,
Desire some to hug her never to release,
Pray some to pass their life sitting by the nymph.

Some only pass amusing judgments,
Recite some, famous Urdu couplets.
Shy some to even sip her fragrance,
Quarrel some to pluck, among themselves.

But everyone, dreams her presence,
To smile on one’s personal flower vase
And to sip the enticing fragrance,
In solitude and in the world’s absence.

But she herself knows well,
Whom she loves and for whom smells.
Other bark only like stray dogs,
At the back of elephant’s trots.

Trots fearlessly elephant, cocking its fans,
Only howling and poking nose, nothing happens.

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.
