Dance of Democracy
by Dr. Jaipal Singh
Bookmark and Share
 

What is expected of citizens
In a civilized society
And a mature democracy?

Parliamentarians debate over issues
Intellectuals share common concerns
People avoid disputes on roads
Courts expected to deliver justice
With Idiot-box to play entertainment

But look at the irony
In the Indian insinuation
Boasting the largest democracy!

Parliamentarians entertain
Intellectuals take sides
People fight for justice on roads
Courts are the site of compromise
And Idiot-box offers spirited debate.

(This is after watching the quality of debate in Parliament, fate of the most crucial cases in apex court affecting millions of Indians, politically biased pseudo-intellectuals and heated and futile debates on hyper-active media news-channels)
