Thousands – Kusumita Mukherjee, Kolkata

Wonder_eyeBeauty is in the eyes of the beholder

A thousand lights cannot enrich like the sun reflected by a dewdrop on a Dahlia.

Pure

Unblemished

True

 

The flames of the forest ride the sky on their brown minions

Below lay crushed and mangled

Yet not without the hint of life and colour.

A thousand feet cannot rob it of its glory.

It may degrade

But never perish unacknowledged.

 

Our hearts may be broken a thousand times

But it will never be castrated enough to belie the joy of beauty.

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.
