Indian Democracy

IndiBlogger Badge

What can people do in a democracy
if asked to choose
between the devil and the deep sea?

Voters' plight remain the same
whether living in the eastern part
or western part of country
or  God's own country...

So  corruption of previous regime
and other problems don't go away
they merely take new forms & colour
as example, look at the irony
in God's own country...

The red flags bat today
for the land mafia, resort owners and
private college barons, condoning
even killings of vested interests...

The martyrs of the movement,
the founding fathers
shocked by present day party men
must be turning in their graves...

PS: (1 )Link to the poem I had written on the activities of the previous regime -
(2) Latest reports from a major state in the country show on audio tape a criminal don speaking on telephone from prison to a key politician of the Government directing him to take action/ show the Government official ( Block development officer, Police officer) his place. The politician assures him of full support!


  1. Yes. Democracy is just an illusion of choice.

  2. Thank you for sharing your thoughts DP!

  3. Nietzsche said, "That which now calls itself democracy differs from older forms of government solely in that it drives with new horses: the streets are still the same old streets, and the wheels are likewise the same old wheels."
