Indian Democracy: Governed By The Contradictions, And Not By The Will Of People!

RIP Kargil Saheed Capt. Amit Bhardwaj

RIP Kargil Saheed Capt. Amit Bhardwaj.

The Indian democracy is said to be governed by the will of people. It’s not the entire truth. In reality, it’s governed by chosen contradictions. They make us sad, frustrated and gloomy. This time I would not enter into any sort of complicated analysis. Just presenting two news items side-by-side. That would be suffice to make Indians realize that not all is well with this country. The first news item is related with Saheed Capt. Amit Bhardwaj’s birth anniversary. The second news item is related with murder of a Deputy Superintendent of police, Zia ul Haq in Deoria, in Uttar Pradesh.

By means of contrast I wish to know are our soldiers sacrificing their lives for such rulers who appear to be no better than murderers? And secondly, do our citizens, which include judges and bureaucrats too, have no other option other than to live under shadow of such criminals posing as rulers? Anyway, RIP Kargil Saheed Capt. Amit Bhardwaj/Zia ul Haq. We shall always remain indebted to your glorious sacrifice. And for such rulers, it’s better that they get punished instead of making an attempt to define their worth. 

Now the mother of all questions: If that’s the fate of high ranked police officials, how can the judiciary expect a common man to act as whistle blower? Any answers?


Capt. Amit Bhardwaj was leading the reinforcement column of 35 men when they were ambushed en route by Pakistani soldiers armed with light & medium weaponry. With the help of Havildar Rajbir Singh, he decided to divert the attention of the enemy & ordered his Second-in-Command to get the men out of the battle area. The two gallant men were killed, the others survived, though all were wounded. Capt. Bharadwaj saved nearly 30 of his men and killed more than 10 infiltrators, though he himself was hit twice fighting till the last breath. His body lay in deep valley of Himalayas, till it was retrieved on July 13, 1999. The bodies of Captain Bhardwaj and Havildar Singh 57 days later.


Jai Hind

“I demand that the Chief Minister come here and resolve this issue. I demand Raja Bhaiya be subject to a police investigation, and the CBI should also intervene. If the CM does not come here I will not bury my husband. He will have to come or I will commit suicide…….He was under a lot of pressure. He was constantly being threatened and didn’t want to stay here. If justice is not served then I will go to Akhilesh Yadav’s house and kill myself,” ( Wife of murdered police officer)

And who is Raja Bhaiyya? A ruling Minister in UP’s present government against whom  48 criminal cases are pending.

“But this is not the first time that Raja Bhaiya is finding himself under scrutiny for death of a policeman. In 2007, DSP Ram Shiromani Pandey, the investigating officer in the POTA case against Raja Bhaiya, died in a road accident on the eve of his approaching the Allahabad high court seeking action against him. Questions were raised, but nothing could be proven and Raja Bhaiya remained as powerful as ever.”

 If that's the fate of high ranked police officials, how can the judiciary expect a common man to act as whistle blowers? Any answers?

    Koi shaq? Democracy is not the ruling of by the people, for the people. It is only in saying. It also is an imperialism. Democracy survives and flourishes when there is import of slaves/labor, resources at dirt cheap price and inward movement of capital, and exporting finished goods and technology like military etc at exorbitant prices to third world countries.

    One question to you? How did democracy in India arrive? Indian democracy is not like French revolution nor American war nor British industrial revolution, it arrived with the masters coming here, and while they were leaving the nation, implanted their stooges in the name of power. 🙂 So the effects of British legacy still remains here.

    So democracy in India was never with the masses, but with the elites 🙂

    Author’s Response:

    Thanks for your insightful remarks.. Democracy might have worked wonders in some specific areas but it has not change the face of rulers at all. They retain the exploitative tendencies of British era, who prey on the vulnerable and weaker sections of society.

    You read very fast!!!..I hope before posting such thought-provoking responses in a flash, you would have also read my posts with same consciousness!!

    Definitely a big question…

    Author’s Response:

    How can a common person act as guardian of democracy when that’s the way policemen are being killed???

    Thanks to you Arvind ji for highlighting Important issues….

    Author’s Response:

    I cannot change the whole world but what’s in my hand, I would definitely do that with total sincerity and fullest application of mind. And that’s why such issues, due to grace of Lord, make their presence felt via my pen..

  4. Chandrapal S Bhasker, United Kingdom, said:

    Arvind, you mean Indian men. Yes Indian men like all men are disposable, hence are being sent to kill themselves or kill other “enemy” men. It is this hatred of men and complete lack of respect for lives of male gender that needs to addressed and challenged.

    Author’s Response:

    And we still believe that Indian men do nothing, when they are the ones who are all the time paying a heavy price for calling a spade a spade, for being engaged in direct and proxy battle with all sorts of foes! If they are not being killed in brutal way, the survivors of such fatal death are soon in arms of some fatal disease.. So the end result is always death!!

  5. As per Plato, Oligarcy leads to Democracy which in turn ends up in Tyranny. Plato was a great critic of democracy as it was run by propaganda not by reason.

    Now the whistle blowers are blowing the donated whistle and put the air from others breath! We have seen many such so called blowers, who are ostracized by the people, and other blowers use their corporate link.

    Author’s Response:

    So happy to find someone from my own city having a brilliant take on the whole issue… You sound so right like any conscious legal hawk.. The irony involved in the whole issue is that these sponsored love, sponsored hatred, sponsored disputes, sponsored issues, and , above all, sponsored whistle blowers, supported by hidden negative forces, make the cause of genuine souls weak. That’s the worst development. That’s why if there arises any opportunity to wipe out negative forces, do it well, not for the sake of one’s natural moral duty but for the sake of cause of genuine souls. It would help to create space for right people. I hope you get my point well..

    The real change will come from thje common man itself. The Kalki avtar would be ‘Janavtar’. Let’s keep doing our due!!

    Author’s Response:

    Well, let Kalki Avtar manifests at its own appropriate time but before that let’s creating better scope for right men and women. That’s no pretext to forget our own little but significant steps. Anyway, thanks for letting me know your view.

    1947 में नामर्द की करतूत की सजा अब तक भुगत रहा है भारत – वो तो पूरी नहीं हुई – दूसरे नामर्द की करतूतों की सजा शुरू है ।

    भारत नामर्दों द्वारा शासित होने के लिए शापित है ।

    I will definitely read your write-up. If “Neem” has fallen in love with “Karela” what can we do? Nothing other than destroying both Neem and Karela together 🙂

    Indira Gandhi ne Bade-bade rulars ko kinare kar diya thaa. In media walon ki sic mansickta ne ek gaon ke jagirdar ko RAJA bana diya. Shame on such Channels…Jab kalam bikaoo ho jae to….samjho sharafat ka ant aagaya. Hame bikaoo cheezen achi nahi lagti….Apni-apni samajh hai………..Hum kabhi glass ko khali nahi dekhte…….Bab ki kuch logon ko glass khali nazar aata he..

    Author’s Response:

    Indira Gandhi was a flawed lady and the only right thing about her was that she used her flaws to wipe out the greater flaws of other beasts quite well..Be they appeared in form of nation or individuals..However, she went overboard and simultaneously wiped out good elements/institutions as well….

  11. Anand G. Sharma, Mumbai, Maharashtra:

    I was wondering about the bitter Truth you have brought forth, of “Sponsorship” of all issues favourable to negative forces.

    Misleading from core issues and keeping people indulged in petty, trivea, childish issues is also heavily “Sponsored”…Isn’t our History too is written by “Sponsored” writers, surviving on state alms ?

    Author’s Response:

    You are guilty of making me think deep…When messages appear or response flow from thinking people like you, it’s very tough to handle them.. That’s because my mind is already saturated with so many themes related with different issues..And when a conscious remarks come, I am just not able to sideline it…That’s all…History, by and large, has been written by Chamchas ( sycophants) of Winners. How it can be true???….Rest you can guess….

  12. Chandrapal S Bhasker, United Kingdom, said:

    Arvind bhai, that’s what Indian men need to do – nothing. That’s what Pakistani men need to do, in fact globally men need to reject the self-sabotaging masculine roles that have been imposed on them by social “expectation” and embedded in them by maternal imprinting.

    Author’s Response:

    Yes, read my next write up…It would appear in few minutes..I feel I have said exactly the same thing but in a different way…By the way, your ideas are not easy to grasp.. They are subtle and also ahead of the time..Anyway, I can see meaning in them..So don’t be anxious that no one is finding meaning in them..Great words..Keep it up…

  13. Chandrapal S Bhasker, United Kingdom, said:

    Thanks brother. These ideas, I must admit, are emerging from a global mass movement – the Men’s Movement, hence, however original they might sound are not mine but ours – they belong to the Men’s Movement, a global community of men waking up to their gendered oppression, as I do.

    Author’s Response:

    Your humility impressed me ..But I am in no mood to ignore the medium of such great ideas. One should always honour the medium..And that’s what I am doing..Appreciating you 🙂

  14. Baijnath Pandey, Patna, Bihar, said:

    Truly, the innocent soldiers are protecting the people who are the blood suckers of common masses. An average Indian, to be correct, doesn’t lead a better life than Mughal and British periods. Then, whom are they protecting ???????

    Author’s Response:

    We need better rulers…We need conscious individuals, who can get their priorities right..That’s the only way we can bring better changes…Or else, a “better future” shall always remain an utopia. It’s a sad commentary on state of present day affairs that people at helm of affairs are behaving in irresponsible manner. This tendency has to be curbed that you can fool all the people all the time !!
