By Carol Naidu from India
India is the largest democracy in the world, with over 133.92 crore people of different cultures and religion. Cultural aspects of north India are completely different from that of south India. Similarly, central India has its own distinct cultural and linguistic heritage, which is completely different from north east or far west. Due to the huge cultural and religious diversity in India, every religion has its own political representative.
This is why Indian politics is more complicated than that of western countries. A politician in India can only be successful when he/she manages to collect the support of different religions, cultures as well as castes. Politics in India isn’t easy and provides a quite challenging environment to even the most adept politicians.
The political leaders and parties in India come into power by voting system. Indian citizens above the age of 18 years can vote and elect their leaders. However, it is a government by the people, to the people and for the people, the common people suffer a lot. This is because the political system of our country is corrupted.
If you go in this link (www.trausparency.org/country/IND,) you will get to know the corruption perception index 2018 of India. India is on ranks 78 out of 180 countries (78/180), with a score of 41/100. Germany is on 11 out of 180 countries (11/180), with a score of 80/100.
Due to which many countries have not developed as much as they should but never the less there are many people out there who are really working hard towards the development of their country.
It breaks my heart every time whenever I see news, I am so angry about it and sometimes, I feel so helpless. I think that not only Indian political system but also political system all over the world must be changed for good to bring about a positive change in the society, which will also contribute in making this world a better place to live.
