Democracy is one of the best ways to run any Nation. In India democracy has not been adopted, rather we have democratic nature since the time immemorial. We have developed democracy inside us since the time immemorial. Whereas different parts of this world have faced despotic rulers, Indian rulers of Indian origin were mostly democratic. They never behaved like a dictator and the nature of Indian people and Indian texts never allowed them to behave like so.

The fact of the matter is that they always worked like a guardian and made every effort to flourish this nation and in these efforts they never even hesitated to give up everything in their possession. There are many examples of Indian rulers who gave up their every possession for the prosperity of their public and themselves lived like a saint. We also have examples of Indian rulers who were Rajarshis.

After knowing all such facts it is natural that we should hope that India would develop in a very systematic way and the politicians of the present time would behave on the same path on which our Indian rulers of past time have behaved. But when we look at the present situation it looks totally different. Whatever the British did to us were totally against humanity but the question is about our politicians.

Yes, our politicians! Again and again it should be get reminded to us that are they really able to be called our politicians. Have they really such quality?

After independence India developed much. Today we are under top five economies. But are these developments due to politicians? No, India has developed due to the people of India. Another question which arises is what did the politicians do to bring all the people on the same pedestal.

Did they bring equal qualified and standard education and health facilities to all the people of this Nation? If they did, which might be claimed by them because they can claim anything, then where are these facilities?

Now come to peace. No doubt there would be peace in the homes and lives of politicians but what about the public. Are the public always bound to live an unpeaceful life? These politicians use the sentiments of the public from time to time for their own benefits and do not do anything to bring peace in the life of the public.

There are a lot of options left in the hands of politicians with the help of which they play peacefully to make the life of the public unpeaceful and the innocent public do not understand that these politicians are playing with them.

Now talk about prosperity. Who did get prosperity in the last 74 years with very little labour? Labour! Although, I have used the word labour but in truth this word should not be used. Why wasn’t such a word used? Because these politicians have always said and claimed that they are serving the Nation and the people of the Nation.

And in truth they are serving the Nation or ruling over the Nation is a matter of debate. I do not want to get indulged into that.

One thing is also important that these politicians think themself that they are above the Nation and Constitution. When the same Laws are applied over all the people of the Nation then how can politicians think themselves excluded from these.

There are always two positions of these politicians. Either they would be in power or they would be out of power. People can easily understand what would happen when they would be in power and when they would be out of power then they can make allegations that any legal action against them is retaliation. How would the system work properly? Are Laws only for the public? Not for politicians!
