Atanu Dey On India's Development

  • Notsure

    I have my quips with democracy in india, mostly I see too little of it.
    I want to see a real president a real rajya sabha (with the same number of reps coming from each state)
    I do want to see municipal body be able to collect and dispose of taxes rather than VATs and octroi crap
    Your writing
    “I am also not sure that granting universal adult franchise was the right thing to do at the time of India’s political independence in 1947.”
    is highly repugnant and isnt even worth ridiculing.
    I am a long time reader of your blog and do agree with you on most issues concerning liberty, individual freedom and find your doubts regarding voting rights annoying to say the least.
