I was recently looking into politics in India, having read the book “White Tiger”. I was interested to see whether India benefits from having democracy, from the point of view of comparing the Indian system with the Chinese system.|
What I sensed was that India’s politics, religions, ethnicities and even classes, present the most amazing myriad of problems. What was also interesting, is that it was stated that in the union which is India, no territory can leave that union and political, regions are based on language rather than ethnicity, which can create even more problems.
Curiously, of the many reported riots and deaths, none of these make more than a splash in the international news as other than being just a local problem. There are no calls from the international community for less violence from the police or autonomy or independence for that region, even though many parts of India see themselves as unique ethnicities with a unique language and culture.
My questions would therefore be:
1) Because India is democratic:
Do the international community see inner turmoil and deaths from riots and police brutality as a normal standard?
2) Due to India being a populous developing country the same as China.
Would the Indian political system work better as a one party state with regard to law and order, social stability and economy. Or is it fine as it is?
I know we have some Indian friends as forum members and I wonder if you would make a comment.
If I have misunderstood the situation in India, then please forgive me if I have been naïve.
I can see that some of the situation is multi-faceted.
If this topic has been addressed before then please point me to that thread.
I did read thoroughly the thread on trains, very informative.
