The Eternal Love – Pallavi Banerjee, Kolkatta


111The old man gazed into the still eyes of his beloved

who was lying on her death bed.

He was struck by an epiphany when he realized that years ago on the same date,

their dear ones had showered blessings and  confetti  upon them on their wedding day.

He was overwhelmed with emotion when he realized that

the promise to grow old together had been fulfilled.

He avidly desired to embrace her for the one last time.

But the very next moment, he realized that

she would not be able to feel his touch anymore.

As he starred at his wife’s old white wrinkled face,

he fell in love with her once again.

He planted a kiss on her forehead and dropped a tear,

and waited for the seraphim to take her to the heavenly abode

and  accompany her beyond the sphere.

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.
