My inquiry was never on whether India is a democracy or not.  The facts are
such that India's creation is probably the most civilized in human history.
Nowhere else has any other nation exercised or even conceptualized a more
intelligent form of power transformation.  If any nation has a chance at
becoming a model democracy in this century it would certainly be India if
Indians would want it so!!

> That means, stop asking questions like "IS INDIA A MODEL DEMOCRACY?"

No, I did ask this question and I was referring to the fact the current
policies that are in place (though changing by each day) are no more different
than those under the British Raj.  I only meant this in the sense that Indians
should rise to the occasion to run their own Government better or even take
pride in politics and participate in the world's largest democracy!!
