The definition of Democracy as peoples right has changed in India. From US President to the common man in this vast world calls India the largest Democracy. But does an Indian exercise his right of Democracy in our country??? Its a million dollar question.
In our country Democracy is in the hands of the poor. Our leaders are elected by this group of people. They are targeted by the politicians to become the elected representatives. The rich and the middle class neither exercise their right nor take any active part in the so called democratic process. The rich sit in their posh drawing room with a glass of whiskey and discuss politics, while the middle class spend their time in front of the Television or use the social media to make statements about what has to be done and what not. None of these come down to participate in active politics or progress of our country.
Definitely the question is about the quality of our politicians/leaders of our country. The quality is deteriorating, especially politicians who want to be elected leaders. And the successful ones are with criminal background or film stars. Why?? The poor idolise these people and vote for them. Either money power or criminal power or the star power which attracts them and make them choose them as our elected representative.
We are a country with people of great talent and intelligence. Why can we not have good leaders from this pool of intelligent people??? Paradigm of thought has to be changed to get such talented people as our elected representatives. What ever economic class a person belongs to has to participate in the progress of our country by exercising his/her democratic right. We will definitely have a better society and life without corruption.
EVERY INDIAN SHOULD COME OUT AND ACT FOR THE COUNTRY, VOTE FOR THE DESERVING AND NOT TO THE POWER MONGERS. MONEY FOR VOTES SHOULD STOP.
