Why Democracy is not suitable for India?

Democracy has been a failure since Independence. Let us understand why Democracy is not suitable for India-
    The democratic elections are not based on the merits or in other words, election is a competition about fooling the citizens of the country. UPSC sets the toughest exams for the selection of executives but for those who direct them, there are no criteria. If there is any problem due to imbalance decisions (which is common) then who is responsible. It is only we who have to suffer every time. The only thing that would happen in a democracy is that there would be just a possibility for that political party to lose in the next elections. But again, Democracy can’t make sure that in the next elections there would be a right party and ultimately it is the people that have to suffer. Democracy says that people can correct their own mistakes but again it can’t make sure that the mistakes would not be repeated and most importantly, why to make such mistakes. Democracy enhances the dignity of citizens by giving equal opportunity for all to vote. In a democracy, we can imagine the standards as just a simple right to vote is increasing the dignity of citizens. Democracy says that elections are a good way to choose the leaders. Let’s consider a case – In a constituency out of hundred people there are forty-nine wise and honest people and the rest are foolish and dishonest people. There are two contestants in the elections, one is good and other one is bad. The wise voted for good and the dishonest voted for bad and simultaneously the bad contestant won. In this case the majority is won. Here, only the majority has won. It means that Democracy can’t make it sure that the decisions that are taken are wise. In a country where only 74% adults know just to read, write and understand in a particular language, how can we expect them to take such mature and sensible decisions? As we know the Indian tendency and conditions, policies that are their rights are treated as big gifts by the people similar to a dog getting bread after many days. And for that also they vote for party. Abraham Lincoln said that Democracy is by the people, of the people and for the people. But in India one thing is for sure that Democracy is neither for the people, of the people. It is just by the majority of the people. They say that people are responsible for their decisions. So it’s clear, that we are first imposed to elect and then the results are also our mistake. Every time only we are wrong not the Democracy. Let the people die but the democratic spirits must not be hampered. This is the scenario of Democracy. What would you prefer Success or Democracy?

Duties towards the nation


Every person expects some or the other things from the government but is that enough. Isn’t it our duty to return as much as we can to our nation? After all, we are the citizens of this country, we have some responsibilities. But we all are just bothered about our rights. Nobody has a right to criticize anyone if he himself is wrong.
       Many say that the govt. is corrupt. We can’t do anything. We all are trapped in this system. Let it be. But, whose duty it is to show the right path to the government. We citizens of India are all responsible for it. We have many ways which we can shape the decisions but we hesitate to come up. Some wait for one day that would bring a miracle. Some say that we will do something in future. For those people, there is a famous phrase ‘Fursat to mujhe bhi bahut thi desh ke liye magar pet bhar gaya to neend aa gayi’ (I had plenty of time for my nation but when my stomach was full, I felt sleepy). Our country doesn’t have as much danger from terrorists; our own people are responsible for the downfall of this country. These people with slave mentality are burden for all of us. How shameful it is for that country whose citizens themselves are the biggest threat to it.
        When something bad is happening, we just remain spectators, we just know to point out at others and prevent ourselves from getting involved in any problems. In a race to become distinct from others, we are making profits at the cost of our own people. A country runs efficiently not only by the efforts of the people but also when citizens cooperate with them.
         It is not enough that you pay the taxes on time, stand at the time of national anthem and it’s all over. As much as you can give to your nation, you must give. Apart from it, as a citizen, it is your duty to identify every citizen as your brother and sister, to safeguard public property, to constantly achieve and make the nation proud and to defend the country when required.
         The govt. is not doing anything, we all know but despite knowing all these, when we too indulge in such activities, that is nothing else but betrayal with our country.
