Democracies are good at all sorts of things, but not always at making decisions.There’s a perfect example of that here in India, the world’s largest democracy.

There is a reform which would benefit virtually every Indian and which both main political parties agree should happen, yet which has been blocked in parliament for years.
So why is the country finding it so difficult to take a decision which should be so easy?

Democracy is the worst form of government. Political parties were following their own narrow self-interest.

I Word Understanding

Reform– improve
Virtually– effectively
