No Time to Panic – Rebuttal to Democracy 911! Guest Author Jagdish Patel

Satish Bhatnagar’s article “Democracy Calling 911!” is a sad commentary on polarization in our home America, and our country of birth India. I know Satish and like him, also I believe Modi is good for India, so this criticism, gentlemen’s disagreement,  is about the exaggerations and fictions opined in the write-up. If one believes the presence of an active opposition party is the first nail in the coffin of democracy there is no difference between freedom and captivity. This is not the first time an American president or an IndianRead More

DEMOCRACY CALLING 911! – Guest Author Satish Bhatnagar, Ph.D.

I do not know if democracy, as a form of national government, ever had a golden era in history in the sense when one nation after the other was vying to adopt it constitutionally. However, at present, any signs of its popularity have started to fade. It really bothers me. Having taught in Malaysia (2.5 years) and in the Sultanate of Oman (5 months), both theocratic Islamic states, I fully appreciate the Abraham Lincoln’s famous words on democracy – it is the government of the people, by the people, andRead More
