Till how long are we supposed to go through the same ordeal on a regular basis, its high time that we also wake up and put up our hand to change things around us...we are just doing nothing, people are getting more selfish where one is thinking about themselves, they really dont care who gets elected or something wrong is happening around them, why it is like that one has no idea.....revolt that we are seeing in Egypt is a good sign where people are showing their strength....people should stop accepting things the way they are and at somepoint revolution should happen, it will do good if it happens early...

"Vote out" the Government. We have vote power. Educate the masses to use it judiciously. That is the best way available.

Change the political system to allow only two parties at both central and state level. Only one party can win and people should vote for a president from that party. A single and strong opposition party will  provide the necessary checks and balances. This will completely revolutionise India and transform our country for the better within the next 20 years.

The word DEMOCRARY has completely lost its meaning in India. What is currently happening is a mockery in the name of democracy to which people have got totally fed up. In the current setup parties form so called coalition government which gives way to corruption and absolutely no leadership.

India suffers its maladies mainly due to its current political setup...too many small regional parties having their own power of influence in their states.

Instead our system should change so that there should be only two parties allowed at both central and state level. The system of parties electing a prime minister should be abolished and replaced with people electing a president like in the US.

the change can be brought only by the revolutions and not by the compromise only. in india the chances of revolution are rare, reason being that we have become immuned and we hardly care for our country if our needs are meet out. so it is true that change can be brought only by revolution but this fact cannot apply in india and particularly on us.

Yes it is high time India needs a complete change of governence or revolution, the frustation of captains of INDIA Inc was shared 2 weeks back through an open letter to Government. Egypt, Tunisia and other Arabic countries have appropriatly responded for a change through the revolution.

There should be a change or amendment to our constitution since we are following the same British type model as times are changing to suit the changing scenario of people desire without affecting others.

Uniform civil code across India and Bi-party systems will help to set right things.Uniform education pattern across India should implemented. The land of the law should be enforced without any favoritism or nepotism and everybody is equal in front of law, one may be a MLA or MP or Minister.

In India the law applies only to the common man and not to the people who are in the helm of affairs. Cutting down all unnecessary election expenditures or gifts or money to the vote banks during election are required to be stopped and dealing with severely and in fact these things should be banned. Any violators should be banned immediately and should not be allowed to contest the elections. The President of India or the Prime Minister can be elected by the people and they should not be nominated/elected by the MPs and they require minimum educational qualification to understand the various subjects and to take proper decisions without much depending the bureaucrats.

In our courts lot of pending cases are piled up without resolving the issues and for this the number of courts can be increased and time frame should be fixed without extending the hearings to several months and years.

Yes. The current political format stinks. These politicians will never think of changing the system because they enjoy it very much - much like pigs enjoy wallowing in mud. It is impossible to change the current setup unless there is a revolution.

Revolution does not always mean a violent uprising. It can also be peaceful and can be spearheaded by a single or group of leaders. Gorbechev brought about a revolution in USSR without bloodshed to change the system from an oppressive communist regime to a democracy.

In India, the way we have established our democratic system is at fault. Only a few MPs or MLAs or even a small regional party can bring down the whole government. It gives undue and large amounts of power to some sections of the population. It allows minorities’ total control in the election process thus leading to minority appeasement. How can a few million people decide the fate of the majority billion? This is a flaw in the system. We must find solutions to these and it can only happen through a revolution.

There is no honesty nor any nationalist spirit in our country anomg most of our country men. Nobody actually cares of who rules or what happens with the country unless their personal happiness is in the drain.What we need is revolution of ideology of social responsibilty and a full blown revolt against the national stigmata,that hinders Our country to Greatness. anyone who tells otherwise is just to lazy and selfish to do anything and is very happy with their bank balance and international branded luxury ites in their closet.

Today in India, the political scenario is that of chaos. Scams, corruption, favoritism, and what not. How long we should tolerate this? But with the present structure there is no way there will be any changes taking place in the near future. So, the only way to bring in changes is people should rise against the system. A revolution like. May be with that we may have some real leaders who will work for the country.

Dear Balaji,

You are right to some extent, BUT, who will bell the cat to change the Representation of Peoples Act to prescribe and revert from multi-party system to two party system when at each occasion a disgruntled politician prefers to create another party. It is the people, who can compel them by discarding them and withdrawing their representatives through their annual appraisal system, if introduced for each of the elected representative to be reviewed by public in general through referendums.

MPs and MLAs must take a mandate on annual basis from voters of their constituency, like self appraisal is prescribed for the service people. SO, WHY NOT MPs or MLAs? Whosover is unable to get majority vote from the voters, must be shunted out.

Revolutions are to change the whole system, and not to change the police system or election practices!!! What we need is political will on part of our parliamentarians and to this end every citizen, at the time of election, insist on ones candidate that, the things he should do once elected. If he fails the electorate should dump him in the next election. Yes it may take a long time, but that will be the best way

ONLY BABA RAMDEV AND THE PERSONS ASSOCIATED WITH BHARAT SWABHIMAN HAS CAPABILITY TO MAKE INDIA PROSPEROUS, RECENTLY  ON 27 FEB AT RAMLILA MAIDAN IN DELHI WE HAVE ALREADY  SEEN THE GATHERING OF THE PEOPLE FROM ALL CASTE AND COMMUNITIES FOR THE REMOVAL OF BHARASTACHAR FROM INDIA.THEY GATHERED THERE FOR OUR BENEFIT.THEY TRAVELED FROM REMOTE AREA TO DELHI CALLED BY BABA RAMDEV TO MAKE INDIA FREE FROM CORRUPTION. A CORRUPTION FREE COUNTRY MEANS A PROSPEROUS COUNTRY, A HAPPY COUNTRY, A TRANSPARENT COUNTRY,AN EDUCATED COUNTRY. SO IT HAS BECOMES OUR DUTY TO SUPPORT BABA RAMDEV IN COMING ELECTION SO THAT HIS PARTY COULD MAKE THE GOVERNMENT AND COULD ESTABLISH PEACE AND TRANQUILITY IN THIS COUNTRY AND COULD MAKE INDIA FREE FROM ANY BHRASTACHAR. THERE IS NO OTHER OPTION LEFT BUT BABA RAM DEV TO MAKE INDIA PROSPEROUS.

EDUCATE PEOPLE TO VOTE FOR A RIGHT CANDIDATE


In any democratic system like India, revolution is NOT at all necessary. The need is only to understand the voting rights, its importance, and its proper use by the people.


SO, there is ONLY the need to educate people to exercise their voting right properly and vote for right candidate only to weed out the corrupt persons from power.

India is a democratic Country. Everyone has the right to vote for anyone. If u dont find any suitable candidate, be a candidate and contest in polls.

To break this imbroglio, the best thing to do is to disconnect the nexus between the power that be and the perpetrators, as the so called perpetrators act as conduits for the power that be. This can happen only when the Apex Court pronounce tough judgements against those who are involved and also against those who have covered them all these years! Once this is done, dissolve the government and go to public for fresh mandate, conduct free and fair election, the government thus elected would have some fear factor to govern the public!

Do we need an Egyptian-like revolution to change the political system. NO. That would worsen the situation esp. in a country with diverse political agendas.

So what other ways can be adopted - Have a multi-pronged strategy not at a govt. level but at an individual level:

  1. Educate the masses including girls
  2. Vote out criminals, vote in educatd politicians with a clean record
  3. Dispose age old legal system where convicts are either protected or bailed and inject a modified legal system that shreds off the Britishness in it.
  4. <Any other ideas, you are welcome to add here - Otherwise, GET IDEA>

I do believe that the selection process of the candidates in election whether at municipal corporation level or at lok sabaha level, must be improved. i mean the candidate for whom we have to cast the vote are more or less similar, perhaps if we can gat an option of casting a vote for an option none of the above and the candidates are barred from the successive election we can atleast get some quality representative for ourselves. even if we ensure that we vote, whom we are selecting is the most important question, and the choices we get at almost similar. I do also believe if we dont give or accept bribes, the condition will surely improve. what I feel is that we dont have an aggressive opposition at centre and since independence we are giving chance to only one ideology(congress). This is now high time to change our our preferences and one has to think above himself.

Why need a revolution when the power vested on citizen itself. Let me enumerate some points to be followed by citizen for effective & fast reforms in political system.

 1. Ensure that you vote: Voting is a fundamental duty of every citizen. If you wnat to enjoy fundamental rights you have to observe fundamental duties to the nation. Many thinks that voting is unnecessary & can be ignored. The result is only 60% turn out out of which if one manages 30% votes gets elected. Effectively one needs only 18% mandate to rule. Thus corrupt politicians manage this 18% using policy divide & rule. Vote bank politics has the base on non-voting by mostly middle class that is approximately 40% of total votes.

2. Don't sale your votes:- Many sale their votes in cash & kind. Many prefer to vote on caste line. Electing a represantative is a national duty & should be done strictly on merit basis. On the other hand let us consider that we say some MLA/MPs are corrupt. Technically they are represnatatives. Thus to whom a corrupt represent? Is not it the corrupt voters?

3. Don't give/accept bribes:- We are very vocal on corruption but never preached the same. We are ready to bribe Police, TTE, officers to get our work done ahead of rightful candidates. We just scream on corruption when we fail to auction a favour for ourselves.

4. Be Responsible: One example will show our attitude. If there is an accident on road & some body lying injured we all prefer to skip this & just passed the site considering why to bother. But when we or some of our relatives/friends lying there in that condition we scream that the passer's by are oppurtunists.

Thus we have a dual charector. Unless & until our charector changes no revolution or any method will work. If we are corrupt, oppurtunists, selfish, unaccountable etc how do we expect our represantatives be clean!!!

Let's change ourselves, all systems including political system will change. Unless civil society is changed no polity can be changed.

What we are seeing in Egypt is not a "revolution" but a "convolution".The revolution needs a strong leader who leads from the front against the tyranny of the present rulers or administration.There is no such visible leader in Egypt.As for India,there is no tyranny but 'irony' and the change can be brought out by effecting improvement in voting system.At present i see no pan India leader.

Mr. Murthy - How do we vote out a gornment. Once it is elected it stays for 5 years unless afew MPs or MLAs revolt to bring down the government.

And once the government is brought down, then what? Another election and the same kind of blokes come to power.

We cant trust the election processes too. Too many goondas in the payroll of the politicians control the election outcome. Also, one cannot trust the Electronic Voting Machine. Please see this Youtube film and you will know http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlCOj1dElDY.

It is all too rigged and ours is not an honest democratic process. We need a total change in the system and the law as well.

People's will is the Government. Majorities opinion is counted for governance. If you feel that, majority can be mobilized through Revolution only, then the present Democracy what we have is a fool hardy system. Opinion can be, at present mobilized using available mass medias, for that an interested and dedicated agency is required not a revolution. People's will can do a lot, it can be through electoral process for governing and effective communication of ideology to people through public resources after selecting the Government. Presently, what we see is that we select the Govt. and let rule us and not mobilizing ideas constructively. The process of governing is to be made effective by MASS MEDIA by bridging the people to their governing system that we do not have. Mass media is basically aimed at Business and not as a Service.

Mr. Suryanarayan,

How one can vote out the Government and for how many times, when we have already voted them for a minimum period of 5 years? There is no system for the public to vote out the Government in the Indian Constitution or the Election Law. You will have to per force bear with that once you have already voted in favor of the Government.

Changing political system per se is probably the solution. More scientificaly conscious leadership who can incorporate latest methodologies in adminstration and economic development is the answer. First of all the Nations should have a mission like the American soverign mission of 'life, liberty and pursuit of happiness'. Then one declare one intent on the course of Economy whether a 'free market' a 'socialist' or a 'proletarian' etc;. Once these are decided the 'culture can be plnanned, which create the 'homo economicus' man or economic agent which is each citizens role. Once the mission is ascertained it is easier for citizen to incorporate cultural changes supporting the mission. Otherwise citizen won't have anywhere to look to see where they are going or being led towards. So everyone will have personal goals which fulfills the country mission and which inturn fulfills their lives objective working towards it. A collective will gets formed in the bargain among citizen which homogenises their behavior when everyone follows one mission and one collective goal the latter gametheory depicts as 'group rationality'. Planning educational missions to support the nations mission is very important so that skill imparting will complement nations mission. Ours is bicameral system perfectly created for democracy, so no change there is required except may be for more erudition in the part of leaders who are missioned to lead and labor than enjoy their life.

I Completly support Mr.Suryanarayan Murty. Realization is better than a revolution. We can choose better leaders by casting our valuable votes. Corrupts will be there in all over the world. As a Individual Govt. given us the lots of rights to say, to choose, etc., So I dont thing revolution is the only one way to change the political system in India, we can find lots of better ways apart from that.
