    I'm thrilled to see the ideas and views of all the experts. And I think what can be the better moment to stop any discussion when we have all the parameters explained.
    I thank all for the participation and I hope for similar good response in future too.

    Our sysem may b longest written, it is may b one of da perfect in da world but it will b da best only if the guardians of system(politicians) keep it best.

    I very much agree with gopal, It’s unfortunate that v call our system a monarchy, 62 years have passed since 1947. Out these 62 years, Congress ruled for 49 Years. Other Parties Ruled only 13 years. Almost 80% of Time since Independence Congress Ruled India. Yes the parties was democratically elected same was da case in west Bengal were communist party continuously ruled for 34 years. India got a population of 125million but if v look at politics now der is only one single party which has da majority to rule, der is a saying among Indian “born in gandi family = born as pm”.I am not criticizing any party, people accepting dem so dey r i... view more

    I would like to add another dimension to the topic that if it is perceived as that democracy necessarily involves corruption then think about China. They don't have democracy and there are rumors that China is above all when it comes to corruption. But, as their Political and Bureaucratic system is Oblique, not even translucent, so, the Scams do not get in the eyes of the common man.

    Nikhlesh Mathur See sir, if I talk just on the topic of the discussion then also I will say, yes! But, do the story ends here? I think, as Neelu Kapoor mam/sir said, in other words in democracy a leader elected is a five year king! And also that his future is not secure. It doesn't mean that he will do whatever he want, he can do. He has to do work for his people either willingly or unwillingly for the sake of his people, as he want himself to be in the same chair for another term as well. So, this differentiates a Monarch from a minister. 'IDEALLY'!Now coming back to the discussion topic, if we want democracy, then corruption comes as an ad... view more

    We could know about corruption because of democracy We need to introspect ourselves first that are we not the one who is encouraging corruption may be due to little personal favor or fear in getting trouble or losing job We either encourage by supporting in the act that helps other to undergo corrupt ways or remain silent remember what Mahatma Gandhi had said not opposing violence is violence similarly not opposing corruption is corruption

    (the usage of Monarch in my texts is not meant in the derogatory sense, the best known indian rulers yet have been monarchs, and are widely respected in even non-indian companies)

    Survival of the fittest is a maxim and not a rule which can be enforced. Likewise, what should happen is not what happens. A system would redesign itself based on human frailties and available ground for interpretation. No written line exists which can't be interpreted differently. Since democracy doesn't ensure that the ruler/ leader feels secure about his future unlike a Monarchy, hence the system evolves and takes the shape that the indian democracy is (hence the case for monarchy). We can harp about what should happen, but we need to consider what can happen before designing a system. Again, an example that illustrates in can be that if ... view more

    In my opinion citizens are also responsible for corruption, If citizens will not know their rights , then how can we imagine a good future for that country , It is also a worried part for INDIA , All citizen of India will be know about their rights and their voting value , we always only talk that there is so much corruption and all leaders are responsible for this but nobody does not even a try to remove this , trying to get the job done quickly, we are encouraging it (Corruption)

    I have mentioned some improvements to the system. I think, this is what Anna's Anshan was for. He demanded the Lokpal Bill to carve out, 'I repeat', carve out corruption. He demanded the 'Citizen Charter' to bring transparency to the Bureaucratic system. He demanded Judicial Accountability Bill to bring transparency in the Judiciary. If we say our democratic system a Monarchy, then we must think about our Constitution which is the World's Best written. Yes, I agree corruption is there, BUT HAVE WE HEARD ABOUT A MACHINE NOT HAVING FRICTION IN IT. As is the case for friction, "CORRUPTION IS A NECESSARY EVIL TO OUR POLITICAL SYSTEM."

    Neelu Kapoor Nikhlesh Mathur .I have an objection with the word 'MONARCHY' here. See, its very easy to criticize when it comes to the Indian Politics and above all 'the SYSTEM.' This is really unfortunate that if today the opposition says A.Raja, the Govt. says Yeddyurappa!
    Being an Indian we should acknowledge what we have and think about the improvements that can be incorporated to the SYSTEM. These 'YOU THERE I HERE' type of things we should leave for these leaders. What is your take on this sir. Arvind Joshi245.

    I think our attitude should change first,
    As neelu pointed few sitting for 5yrs as monarch it obvious it roots corruption. v should realize dat in a democratic country people r rulers n politicians r da representatives who works for people unfortunately it never happens n results in misuse of power. Wat ever b da system, democracy or autocracy its v who accept and follows it. V should react if v feel its wrong else it will b a price v pay for our own ignorance….

    Why at first place should democracy have a price as high as corruption? Why can't the rules & regulations made in a democratic country be followed religiously by every single native. If one follows the regulations without trying to interpretate them to suit personal needs then corruption would not be there. Democracy is there to give power to the people contrary to Morarchy which gave power to only one person. In India the powers are distributed amongst the politicians and those with money + muscles or snatched by . I do not call it democracy in true sense at all. Such so called democracy is worse than Morarchy in my opinion.I do not largely... view more

    surely there is some sense in this. a king is accorded permanent wealth and status and his decision can be made without consideration. however a 5 year king has to consider a lot of influences including various favors incurred during his journey to the throne.

    I personally think that everyone, say it's politician, govt. employee, we the common mass and everyone is involved in corruption. Democracy is a tool, but a tool should be in a right workman. What do you all say? Is this sentence that "Corruption is the price we pay for democracy" is justified?
