How will like minded people coalesce around the idea otherwise ? Besides, what RoyG is talking about is legitimately "evolving" our "democracy", using constitutional means. Indian constitution has many provisions in there to effect such changes. One effective provision was already tried, but by the wrong person. Clearly, there is another provision, called "a process to amend the constitution", which has been used many times in the past 65 years.
To use the constitutional rights guaranteed by the constitution is the "right" of every individual or group and to come together for that purpose is not only a right but a duty of all individuals, if they truly believe that things can be improved. It is the civic responsibility of every citizen, to not stay apathetic but be an active citizen of a free, democratic, socialist country.
If it is already "Constitutionally" all-known, cheers then. Why the question as to "why/where/who"? Its there in the "Constitution", a divinely perfect work of art. Its already "free+democratic+socialist" country. In that case RoyG's concerns do not exist in reality, so he has no obligation to spell out the details of who/where/how.
Apparently, the level of "socialism" wasnt/isnt enough, so it creates the legitimate super grievances of Naxals/Maoists. Are u proposing to "amend the Constitution" to increase the level of socialism so that no single individual remains dissatisfied with existing "socialism"?
u think apart from the 2/3 of both houses thing, no other institution can trump the legislatures proposal to "amend"?
to come together for that purpose is not only a right but a duty of all individuals,
has this right and duty been formally given in the Constitution with no glorious conditionalities on the "Hindu"? remember the woozy feel-good stuff comes right at the beginning, and the meat of laws that trump those pious wishes come later within the body.
