Indian democracy has come a long way since its inception through the elections of 1951. Although many European countries were skeptical about her success, she proved her mettle. However, this was possible because of the efforts of her founding fathers and middle class educated Indians. The democratic values of secularism, pluralism, institutional autonomy, and scientific temper were assiduously installed in the very fabric of Indian democracy. However, these dearly cherished principles of our beloved forefathers are threatened in recent times. If we cannot reclaim that, the underpinning of the democratic set up would demolish.
