What does democracy means to us?
Democracy is a form of government which is by the people, for the people and of the people. This means the citizens elect representatives from amongst themselves who work for the good of all. Democracy gives equality to all and also encourages diversity. In democracy no distinction is made on the basis of caste, creed, religion or language. Since in India is a land of diversity, with so many religions, languages, food habits and culture, it is important that all are treated equally and no distinction is made on the basis of different culture or religion. Democracy helps us in maintaining this and thus is very important to all of us.
