I really hope you aren't blaming Indira and Sanjay's antics on Manmohan Singh.
Of course not. That'd be frigging daft, now would it? Smiley
But as long as deputy commissioners in rural districts are basically little dictators for theduration of their posting in the particular location, and even in a big city like Bangalore the municipal corporation is utterly irrelevant politically and the state cm might as well be doubling as lord mayor officially, I have trouble counting India a "real" democracy.

Plus, I've been reading too much Adiga recently. Smiley

Don't you dare insult India's bureaucracy. It's been their only competitive advantage for the last 60 years. Tongue

You actually once called the "World's greatest democracy" at one point.

It's a figure of speech. Largely related to the county's very size.
