The most popular definition of democracy is “Democracy is a government of the people, for the people and by the people”. This definition holds good position in political context.
But in social context or in our daily lives, it may be redefined as
(i) The rulers elected by the people must take all the major decisions.
(ii) Elections must offer a choice and opportunity to all the people to change the current rulers.
(iii) This choice and opportunity should be available to all the people on an equal basis.
(iv) The exercise of this choice must lead to a government, limited by basic rules of the Constitution and citizens’ rights.
