The Indian Constitution was born in 1947. The idea was pure democracy where pwople will have fear of law and will have all rights which a human needs to have. The principle was untangalement of power, power with masses and creation of a fearless society.
62 years have passed and I am sure that if the framers of the constitution were alive they would have cried and would have committed suicide. We live in an era worst than dictatorship. If you strongly feel against a strong political person, then also you must keep quite and bear the atrocities or else you would land yourself in trouble. You fear the local leaders and goondas. Atleast I do, as they can beat you and the police will do nothing. You may knock the doors of law but result will be more harrassment for you.
Not only do the politians threaten you, but also police and who ever is a little powerful than you. To sum up its a rule of "jiski lathi uski bhaas".
And for the law, the threat is much more. The demo of the same is from the fact that many had very hard feelings against the CJI's decision on non disclosure under RTI, there was resistence and protest inside but not open as all fear that he will as constitutional head may make you face Contempt of Court. For me a Judge is a person who stands for justice and is above self, who knows the pain of the commonman and gives them justice, which brings confidence in the masses towards an organised process of law and its execution. A judge is non controvercial and whenever he feels that people are not satisfied or his decision has caused harm to a person or the faith in justice, he steps down like a humble warrior, without any resisitence and even before any one demands action. I do not know the right or wrong but know one thing.. I have fear and I am afraid of the police, politians, judiciary and even local small time self acclaimed leaders (dadas). For me all are the dictators and I am their servant who has no guts to protest a loud. I fear more the common man who will not support me if I say look here this is a wrong thing, but instead some will critise me, some will victmise me and some will pat my back and say "you are right, but hum kya kare, humbhi darte hai".
THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS THAT WE ARE IN DICTATORSHIP OF SO MANY DICTATORS AND THE SPIRIT OF DEMOCRACY HAS BEEN ASSISNATED...
