Indian Politics

Updated on April 29, 2014

The Problem

Indian politics is in bad shape. Political parties keep blaming each other for the havoc that is there, and do virtually nothing to solve it.

Now, different people have different opinions. So, people do have conflicts in their opinions. But the truth is always one. It is not different for different people. There may be different ways of understanding the same thing but truth is always one.

"Politics is not a game. It is an earnest business.
-Winston Churchill "

Good governance can only be achieved when the people(and hence their representatives) are on the same page. That can be done only with finding the truth/right thing to do amongst the varying opinions on a(each) subject, which is possible with argumentation where compulsory expression of truth is mandatory/complied to.

So productive argumentation on each subject shall lead to a better society and a better nation. But people don't speak the truth. They shout lies. That being said, it is clear why there is no good governance in India.

IMHO, democracy is a weak system for governance when people are not true to each other and are selfish. In such a scenario, one needs to be vigilant and strict laws have to be imposed to the society. I say imposed because I don't remember signing a contract of citizenship where I have to abide by all the laws set by others!

"If you have ten thousand regulations you destroy all respect for the law."
Winston Churchill

"A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus."
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Please vote, it'll take just a few seconds

Do you think we need to fight for a change that should lead to a better society?

See results


Well you can sure make a change in the current democratic function but it'll take a hell lot of effort and more than a life-span to set things straight in India.

So, the way to go is to change the mindset of the people first. One man will not make the entire difference in society but he can be the initiator to a revolution where people just follow and in turn make a difference to the society. For better governance, we need better society. For a better society we need better people. For better people, we need each human being to be good and follow the righteous path.

Fighting won't resolve issues. Vote bank politics will not make any party win in the true sense. Parties following good politics(or claiming to do so) will not succeed unless they also turn the bad people to their side. People say it is sometimes necessary to fight. It shouldn't be if people understand that good for one is good for all.

The only solution according to me is to make people believe in a win-win situation. And this is a very tough thing to do.

"Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future."
-John F. Kennedy

      4 years ago from Chennai in Tamilnadu, India.

      This is virtually what Anna Hazare has conceived and what Arvind Kejriwal tries to follow. But in India, political success is decided by money, muscle and oratory skills of the leaders of the party. Everywhere there are blatant lies and people are enamored by personalities and not the actuals. When the media depicts Modi as a hero, people blindly follow it. Power seekers can never bring the changes in society! Nice hub.
