That Song…

On ocean blues
straining the heart muscles
written was that song
jana gana mana

the thuds of falling corpses
when synchronized
with the tunes of aeolian harp
played by the cruel Lord of Death
written was that song
jana gana mana

when from the other shores of the Sindhu
to the Southern shores of the Kaveri
the waves flowed with rippling sounds
of unfailing harmony
written was that song
jana gana mana

that song makes me ecstatic
those unyielding tones of land
bring me back, palm-fulls
of those moment slided into
the time’s swirling currents
jana gana mana

let me adorn my Nation with that precious crown
let me abulate my people with that nectar
and let me sing aloud that anthem
on the heart of the world
to bring back the lost peace and harmony
jana gana mana…!

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.
