That night – Bharat B. Trivedi


Bewitched I was–

when you

looked at me lovingly

and your enchanting eyes

glowed like earthen lamps

to cast a spell on me,

that night!

Passion of your proximity

set my body on blaze.

when sulking sun sank in dusk

and majestic moon burnt brightly

that night!

Cactus shrubs caressed me

with their thorny tentacles

and love showered petite

pink petals on my path

as I walked barefoot

on the desert sand

that night!

When you left me lonely

for the sake of your new love,

rainbows melted into black soot,

like warm wax.

Sobs from the shadowy skies

showered like acrid tears

when my eyes wept in woe,

that night!

I shall snooze in death’s lap

and wait till my soul sinks

deep in the maelstrom of your memories

when the slipping sands of time

come to a standstill

some night!

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.
