Debate: Indian Democracy Is In Danger

India is known as the world’s largest democracy. After her Independence, the subcontinent became a democratic nation wherein the citizens of the country were given the right to vote and elect their leaders. One of the tenets of democracy is that all members of society should be equal. However, there is a huge gap between what is ideal and what is real. Renowned dancer and activist Mallika Sarabhai and writer and sesquipedalian Shashi Tharoor speak in favour while journalist R Jagannathan and political leader Shazia Ilmi speak against the topic as writer Vir Sanghvi chairs what promises to be a rousing debate.

Spinning Tales for the Web: Creating Compelling Content
