Danger To Democracy
SO long Satiricus was worried because secularism khatre mein hai. Now he is doubly worried, because in addition to Secularism, Democracy also khatre mein hai. For the media has started warning the sovereign citizens of the republic of India that the country is deteriorating into an authoritarian dictatorship due to the menace of ‘Modi’-fication. How true ! Gone, alas, are those delightfully democratic days when Sonia Gandhi’s “advisory” council had to go beyond ‘advice’ and issue ordinances which she liked and Rahul Gandhi could publicly tear up ordinances which he did not like. And of course both did what they did for Desh-ko-bachao-ing. Now who can we look up to, to save the country from sinking into communal prosperity and raise it back to secular poverty?
