I FAIL to understand the way the Indian democracy works. Those who are rejected by the people are made MPs and even Ministers and then elected to the Upper House.... And now there is a demand within the BJP to dethrone Narendra Modi, a person duly elected by the people of Gujarat. Democracy has been distorted to such an extent that it no longer represents the rule of the people, by the people and for the people. It is an exercise in combinations and permutations by power-seekers, secured with the bolts and nuts of compromises and unholy alliances.
