Democracy , never prevailed in India.
It is carelessly & ruthlessly ill-defined.
And asuch, hypes made on the so-called PILLARS, so long, are all bogus and extremely fragile / ill-tempered.
24-hours of airing / projections & writings, outside the PARLIAMENT & ASSEMBLIES, are tantamount to tyranny, mutiny,subversion, against the governance and should call for "CONTEMPT CHARGE" at per with the "CONTEMPT OF COURT"
Conceptual defficiencies about the idiotic "PRESS FREEDOM" should immediately be done away with.
Since independence what has prevailed in the name of democracy is dynastic governance which has again come to the fore by the elevation of Rahul Gandhi. I simply fail to understand why the parties such as Congress cannot find any other leaders to lead the country apart from the Gandhi clan. Its time now for the Citizens of our country to stand up against such politics & vote the right people to govern the Nation!!

After independence we claim that we are a democratic nation. There can be no statement as far from the truth as this one because people's participation is involved in a democracy and the guiding principles are liberty, equality and fraternity. Do we have these? No. Infact in India Democracy is defined as "Govt off the people, far the people and buy the people"
