Democracy with brutal majority by single party,leads to one-man dictatorship and institutional marginalisation. Democracy gives us freedom to elect our own dictators. No rule of Law. Growing  intolerance.

Democracy with fractured mandate leads to political chicanery,the game of 'Snakes&Ladders',horse-trading for quid pro quo, kidnapping elected representatives and locking them inside 5-star hotels, resorts in differen cities to obfuscate their hijackings, transferring black money to allure greedy politicians.

There is cut-throat competition in Maharashtra among unscrupulous politicians to achieve the elusive magic number. Massive scramble for lucrative ( cash-rich) portfolios in Cabinet, as part of package. There is no room for  political ethics and morality in the Indian polity.

In our country, politicians must be changed as often as diapers!

If not done, democracy in India will die a slow death,which it has already started doing anyway.
