Essence of Democracy
Doomsday and damaged democracy
The largest democracy, India, witnessed doomsday on June 25, 1975, when the democracy was crushed by India’s PM Indira Gandhi by declaring emergency, & 45 years later, the doomsday emerged for the oldest, but now badly bruised and damaged, democracy- the USA.
Some curbs are need of the hour to save democracy
Often it so happened that Governments which wanted to make democracy relevant and thriving found themselves handicapped by the very edicts of the democracy and democracy too in turn many a times suffered at the hands of governments who were too meek to do the needful to make the Democracy relevant.
Impact of democracy in political system of India
The present style of democracy in India was inherited from the British but the core value of democracy is existing still in our system as per Vedas in Ancient India.
Are we really a democracy in the true sense?
Are our politicians an elite class, above the law? Is the common man a piece of dirt? Can we ignore the serious repercussions of the Air India incident?
