Democratising India’s Political Culture | Samruddha Bharat & Global Forum for Democratizing Work


Unless a State invests in socialising its citizenry to progressive values, democratic norms will not be embedded in society. Without equality and fraternity, there will continue to be exclusions on the basis of gender, caste and creed- in the nation’s social and economic life.
