'Hail Indian Democracy'
India, land of the poorest of the poor in the world, always boasts of its democracy. Though it ranks first or second in all poverty and corruption lists, the existing system asks people to be proud of its democracy. Seventy percent of Indians are struggling even to live. And majority are struggling even to find a square mean a day as well. The supporteres of this rotten democracy, however, asks those who are trying to replace this system with a better, socialist one to join the mainstream. But the question here is " whose democracy is it?" Is it the people's democracy? No...The reports appeared in various newspapers after the parliament elections clearly suggests that the common man has no role in this pseudo democracy.
