Analytical study of Democracy in Indian

Author(s): Trilok Chand Singh, Dr. RK Garg
Abstract: India has adopted a democratic, Republic and Parliamentary form of government. The democratic government in contrast seeks to preserve the dignity of man and to build itself on it. But democracy is more than a form of government. It is a special condition of society. It represents a state of society in which the rights of the people are equal and their thoughts and sentiments are similar.

He connected democracy with the “highest human attributes”, and related it to the “inalienable dignity of “mankind” which, he said, 'No force, however humiliating, can destroy.” It is in this sense that one should think of democracy. It exists where the rival claims of individuals and society are equitably adjusted, where every citizen is free and has the right to order his life to his best advantage, where the opportunities for all are equal, where the citizens choose their government by the exercise of free votes, and also control its policy by their opinions freely expressed, where dignity of man and Rule of Law are to be found. So, the present paper will represent the review paper of our democratic system to discover.
