Indian Democracy by S.K. Kulkarni is a book that tries to examine the current state of India’s democracy. Abraham Lincoln once defined democracy as "The Government of the people, by the people, for the people." Jawaharlal Nehru, a great democrat, wrote about the evolution of the Indian civilisation. He said, "The central idea of old Indian or Indo-Aryan culture was that of dharma which was something more than religion or creed. It was a conception of obligations to discharge of one's duties to oneself and to others." This, in a way, defines the current democratic spirit of India. The book shows how Indian democracy has survived since independence despite various dilemmas and pressures. It talks about how there was never an instance where one-sixth of humans existed as a single free nation. It examines the state of India's democracy while keeping in mind the vision of its founding fathers, its Constitution, and its political history.
