  2. The logic of democracy is that the people, sovereign in democracy, retain resources at the local level to handle all local matters such as administration of justice, police, education, healthcare land, water systems and forests, and devole a fraction of their revenues, one sixth according to Hindu scriptures, to the state for defence, external relations, higher level infrastructure and coordination, but not interfere in local matters. Controlling five sixth of local revenues the villages and cities prosper, the one sixth of the state shoots up and it to becones prosperous!

    When India was to attain independence, desire of Jawaharlal Nehru to ofter called the last Englishman in India to centralize power led to the partition of India, traumas of partition and the allround social, environmental and political degradation witnessed today.

    The only method by which true democracy can now be instituted is through the referendum process. To facilitate it, we have conceptualised that apart from a parliament and an independent judiciary democracy needs another institution, namely an independent Sovereign Rights Commission with authority to direct referendums, except on issues fundament to democracy or the integrity of the nation. There can, for example be no referendum on making the state theocratic or a region seceding. Superior to the royal priset of bygone days, more like Gandhi, such a commission will function as the non corruptible conscience keeper of the state based on the values of the society as a whole On the bases of the wishes ascertained fro the people, it will prepare a proposed constitution that will be similar to that proposed by Gandhi, and get it approved thru referendum. India will be be on the path of rejuvenation.

  3. I wish to further clarify that the democracy advocated by Gandhi is symbolised in Ram Raj, rule of the epoc monarch Ram. India, nor Britain is the mother of democracy
