In the world over uprising is gaining momentum. In a democratic set up, all are kings, but practically it is not so. Only few people with power and money enjoy the democracy, and others are simply witness the democracy. Without money and power, a normal can not enjoy the fruit of democracy.All the law makers are very rich and trying to make more and more money by misusing the power. Democracy can only be felt when the people of the country is ruled by the self sacrificing and sincere people. what do you say?

Democracy is a country where the people have the power but nowadays this isn't so. The leaders are acting like they are the ones who have the power. That is wrong. We, the people should have the power.

When the power comes to people only then we can say it is democracy. The power should not rested on certain people who have no respect to people and act on their own.
