How long will it take for democracy to develop into a mature, responsive, incorruptible and effective system of governance in India ? Or is it a pipe dream ?

Unfit to democracy of current format,where votes are obtained on caste,religion,give-aways,currency notes,rosy dreams and inside house,those eleted forget their voteers but become faithful dogs of their party.
It's party-cracy,not democracy.

I am surprised when (supposedly) intelligent people ask such questions.
We, Indians, have lived under monarchy for thousands of years. For us the king has always been right.
What makes you think that this mentality, which is embeded in our DNA, will just disappear like magic and an imported concept of democracy will take strong roots in such a short span of time of sixty years? After all sixty years is not more than a blink of eye in terms of history.
So rather than keep fretting and cursing ourself, I like to mainatian a postive outlook and celebrate, at least, what ever we have achieved so far. We could have been much worse off like our twin brother next door in our west
