write short note on equality in indian democracy
|In indian constitution, article 15 guarantees equality to all the citizens of the country. The article also
says that no individual should be discriminated on the basis of race,
caste, religion, place of birth or gender. The Indian Constitution also
abolishes untouchability, ensuring that every person gets equal access
to every public place.The Indian constitution also gives all the adults the right to vote
irrespective of their education, caste, wealth and religion. This is
known as the universal adult franchise. The government in order to
implement equality in the country, implements laws and schemes or
programmes to improve the lives of people.
Though the Indian Constitution guarantees equality to all the Indians, religion, economic background gender and caste play an important role in the society. However, India is not the only country struggling for equality. In spite of the government implementing various measures to bring equality, several communities are still struggling for their dignity.
Equality can only be achieved when one changes his attitude and starts treating every individual with respect and dignity.
