Two netas up in arms over the US thinktank Freedom House having downgraded India from a ‘free’ society to only ‘partly free’.
1st neta: The cheek of these Americans saying that our democracy is only ‘partly free’ and not wholly ‘free’. It just shows how ignorant they are not just about India but also about what true democracy is and what it means.
2nd neta: Very true. Indian democracy is the best democracy in the world, and much better than that so-called democracy they have in America.
1st neta: That’s right. Because their nakli democracy is based on the principle of a government that’s of the people, by the people, and for the people. Which shows it’s not a real democracy at all.
2nd neta: Correct. Whereas our democracy is based on the principle of a government of the government, by the government, and for the government, which is us netas, you and me.
1st neta: Just so. Who better to govern a democracy than the government, right?
2nd neta: Right. That’s why we’re called the government, because our job and duty is to govern our democracy. And we’re on the job, doing our duty, 24×7, governing by making up new rules, or statutes, like overnight demonetisation, and rolling out GST faster than you can say Good and Simple Tax and coming up with the CAA and the NRC, and the new agri laws.
1st neta: Yup. The symbol of America’s bogus democracy is the Statue of Liberty. Our asli democracy is the Statute of Liberty, in that the sarkar is at total liberty to make as many statutes as it likes, when it likes, and how it likes, without so much as a by your leave, or consultation with aam janta.
2nd neta: Which might explain why aam janta gets all exercised about all these new rules we keep making up and starts agitations against them, like the farmers are doing against the agri laws which we so freely made.
1st neta: And which farmers now freely oppose. All of which shows we are not a ‘partly free’ democracy but a totally free democracy – otherwise called a free-for-all.
