The Constitution of India enshrines the doctrine of equality and non interference in certain matters and non-discrimination on certain narrow grounds. It also holds as sacred the freedom of thought, speech and expression. The unwritten Constitution of Great Britain reflects the will of the people more truly as it embodies the conventions and enactments over centuries. Our Constitution is basically a scholarly exercise in compilation of whatever was thought worth emulating. The lofty doctrines of liberty, equality, fraternity, social justice, secularism, fairplay and, above all, rule of law enshrined in our Constitution are yet to percolate into our daily lives. What is needed is not the dismantling of the system of Parliamentary democracy, but introducing electoral reforms to lend more stability to the coalition governments in India. The stability of coalitions in India can be ensured through appropriate electoral reforms. Of course, for such electoral reforms, what is needed the most is a strong political will.
