The Path of Nirvana – Karthika S B, Kerala


Who is the carnifex of my thoughts?
I am in the midst of some insights
The shadow in the front is not mine
The length and width seem different
It is perspicuous
That…that of my thoughts are ridiculous
But all the embryos of my thoughts incinerate
The lovely moments and eventful life leave me no subject
My life blood begins to boil as lava
It will surely take my ‘jeeva’
Incognito! Incognito!
Bosh, the shadow seems to laugh at me, growl at me
But my brave look incarnates the body of the shadow
Hurrey! Hurrey!
He is the awakened man from Plato’s cave
He holds my hand …
Together we walk..
Together we talk…
Together we think…
Together we realize the charming life of Lord Krishna
Together we listen to the ennobling tale of Messiah
Together we know the blissful life of Allah
Together we attune to the path of Nirvana..
The enigma seems blurred
Our thoughts are clothed with holy veil.

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.
