..I understand that my friends got offended. Take it cool fellows. I only criticized the so called democracy that is residing miles bellow the poverty line. Not even poverty, CHRONIC poverty.

Stop telling me the stories of Amita Bashan and Shakti Kapoor. Listen guys you need to be realistic. Democracy.. are you kidding me!! look at this you dreaming Darmindras

Democracy - Dignity = WHAT ( I need an answer right here)

tell me how the heck you use your reason. Freedom, what freedom. The people die in the street and go to vote..that is nonsense. I see people in some coutries sell their kids for money..you guys are telling me that candidates do not buy votes in India!! unbelievable. I saw girls in Belgium doing what they hate to do -prostitution- to be able to help their parents eat in the povertocracies like Ukrania. You are telling me that the hungry and forsaken people (Millions) in India are infallible and do not get bribed to vote. You can sell that idea in India but not in the West.

You can look at china in the same way folks and if you never travel there stop blabbing.

China and India will never ever become like or equal to the West. You can add to that Pakistan.

Technology..ok you go eat ballistic missiles and drink chemical weapons..some people are so damn.. How can a hungry man be free!! how can a guy who spends the whole day carrying people on his shoulders or pulling chariots be free...is that freedom and democracy..if that is so, than long live the dictatorship that preserves the minimum human being rights.
The right to eat and drink
The right to have a dwelling
The right to have a minimum income

So this is the real democracy, the rest is bull.
