Indian democracy is a joke

There is more to democracy than elections. In democracy all are equal. What happens in India is what George Orwell wrote in Animal Farm.

In India some are more equal than others. They have reservations in government educational institutions, government jobs, rural and urban bodies, Lok Sabha and Legislative Assemblies. Students in general category who have 92% marks do not get seats but in reserved category get seats with 45% marks. The reservations were meant for 10 years but continue after 60 years and more categories are added. People who are pampered claim they need empowerment.

When something needs to be done for equality no effort is made. Law allows Muslim men to have four wives. Champions of women’s equality have done nothing against it. Married men who are no Muslims have become Muslims to enter into second marriage without divorce.

Law does not allow Hindu men to have two or more wives at the same time. Some Hindu men have entered into second marriage without divorcing first wife. Sometimes women who marry married men and men who commit bigamy join political parties and become MPs.

Reservations are supposed to be within 50% but there are exceptions but all seats can not be reserved and in Nagaland 59 of 60 Legislative Assembly seats are reserved.

Those who lose Lok Sabha elections become ministers and get elected to Rajya Sabha.
SC panel has said Public Distribution System is corrupt.

In Rajasthan on a particular day child marriages take place. TV channels report the events. No action is taken against people responsible for child marriages and people who in authority do not prevent such marriages.

Female infanticides take place in a district in Rajasthan. To prevent it government declared Rs.1,800/- for every female born. Parents have taken the money for females born and then murdered those babies. The murderers are not punished.

In some places panchayats tell married couples that they can not live as husband and wife. Sometimes panchayats have murdered couples. No action is taken against guilty persons.
Freedom of speech and expression is curtailed not because what is said is wrong but because some people get offended and resort to violence.

Constitution is violated. Sessions are extended to next year. The Presidents have failed to defend the constitution. Article 87 lays down that the Parliament’s first session of a year had to begin with President’s address. Once Lok Sabha’s winter session was adjourned in December and not prorogued. Parliament meets for budget session in February. In this case it was extension of winter session for Lok Sabha. The President who has the duty to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution did nothing. Similar things happen regarding Legislative Assemblies.

As per Article 356 President’s Rule in a state has to end after one year. Once it ends a new government has to be formed. In one case President’s Rule was revoked, Legislative Assembly was constituted and again President’s Rule was imposed in a single day.

Victims do not get justice. Rarely someone who commits crimes during riots is punished. Rule of law does not prevail. When a big tree falls the earth shakes was a statement made by a prime minister.
FTV not available from 7 p.m. March 12, 2010 to 7 p.m. March 21, 2010 due to I & B Ministry prohibition order. No channel is banned for glorifying child marriage or bigamy. Adult films are banned.
No action is taken against people who call for murder or mutilation of someone.

Hijackers and abductors have their way. Criminals in prisons are released as per their demand.
Many times India is a mobocracy and quotocracy.

  1. Hi Dattu,

    Nelson had forwarded this article to me and I enjoyed reading it. Today I came to know it’s from your blog. Good one. Keep it up.

    Gracy

  2. the current boundaries and ethnic composition of this country are not final. the history and time say it otherwise.
    chances of disintegeration are increasing with time and as the overpopulation burden leads to cat-dog -fight situation amongst various caste-religious-power groups
    there would be reorganization of the borders, fragmentation into smaller states ; and even somalia type of situation where after indian disintegration there would be large number of clannish groups controlling small areas and fight brutally amongst themselves- loosely controlled by a weak state and under islamic influence [ may be purely islamic in nature].
    indian media, political parties, indian judges and even the prominent personalities are either agents of foriegn powers or under the influence [ UNDER PAYMENT] of them. these powers are middle east, pakistan, underworld, china and USA.
    the sense of a nation is dead.
    there are power groups commanding political power and the resources in a Darwinian fashion; but here instead using the power of sheer numbers rather than intellectual or martial superiority.
    fragmentation would severely reduce sustainable population, resource usurpation by china, bangladesh and pakistan, formation of the client states under influence and for benefit of above countries; and irreversible emigeration of high IQ resources out of the subcontinent would permanently erase hope for civilizational revival [as has happened in failed states of afghanistan or somalia] .
    over and above that there would be severe climatic catastrope in form of global warming, 30% reduction in rainfall, Hardier crop pests and substantial crop yield reduction [ 50%]. this would happen alongwith the severe escalation in petroleum cost upon which our economy depends.
    welcome to an era of quotas, population explosion, climate change darwinian struggle and mass murders.

  3. Wow! great article. Very true.

  4. Hey in India nobody is an Indian but pretending to be an Indian. Everybody in India is just a part of a large business called Government whoes strings are in the hands of various business powerhouses. eventually India is goverened by busines community and useless and hopeless politicians are enslaved to them and the common man is further enslaved by the ass-holes especially the Gandhi-Nehru family the biggest tree of corrption. On our National Holidays Independance days and Republic days we only remember our flag once it`s hoisted afterwards on a loud tone all movie songs are played. It`s sorry to say but India was never Independent and will never bee Independent. 1st we were slaved to Kings and Queens, then the British, then Politicians and now Businessmen-Politician mafia and lastly Terrorists and Goons spread all over the countyr. Unfortunately the people are quiet. Otherwise all these thugs and crooks must be shot dead. Revolustion is the only weapon against these ass-holes.
