You Forget to Smile – Anand GR Viswanathan


You Forget to Smile

Wake up in the morning

Drink a sip of coffee

A quick glance through newspaper to keep you updated

Patch up with your kids to keep them keyed

Realizing time is getting late to office

Rush yourself to snatch a quick bath

And get dressed up to match up

Without even knowing eat up breakfast

Just about to leave home

Realize that your sweetheart is waiting to hug…

Life is mechanical, life is mechanical

Grasp through your emails

Just to ensure nothing essential

Immerse yourself in the office tasks

After completing your tasks and meetings

The known missed calls history in your mobile

Makes you remember it’s time to go to home

Shock to see clock stuck past late night

On the way back home ensure to pack some foodies,

Just to bribe your loved ones at home

Life is mechanical, life is mechanical

By the time you reach home

Realize your kids are almost in half sleep

Your sweetheart with a disappointing face waiting to dine

Ready to eat and sleep

Few words along the dinner with the family members

Your eyes already drown to catch up sleep

The day sunsets as you fall asleep

Life is mechanical, life is mechanical

The Sun rises again bright in the east,

To make you run through miles

Finally comes a day,

Just to make you realize

You forget to SMILE! You forget to SMILE!

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.
