Communist countries only restrict your economic freedoms but not your day 2 day life.
In democratic India, if u take a girlfriend to a lodge, u r harassed by police. In parts of the country, if you camp in a beach beyond 6 PM, the police drive u away "for your own good." Communities in semi agrarian / semi urban locales outcast u if u consume vices (this is more in South India than in North I admit). ALmost every vice except liquor and cigarettes (the most dangerous ones that too) are banned.
You get the right to vote and elect even dumb and deaf persons and once elected they begin to speak as well as hear what others say and thereafter learn all the ways of becoming rich by adopting short cuts.

U r right. Unfortunately, the mind-set of young Indians too r going the conservative way. So there is no ray of hope friend. Also u misunderstood that there is democracy in India. Here citizens r divided on the basis of religion/caste etc and spl provisions made in govt jobs/admission to educational insititutions, armed forces etc, which is not the concept of democracy. Honour killing, dowry deaths, rape etc r the pillars of the so called Indian culture. Phir bhi mera desh Mahaan.!!!!
