Democracy provides a method to deal with differences and conflicts. Explain.
a. In any society, people are bound to have difference of opinion and interests. These are particularly sharp in India which has an amazing social diversity.
b. People belong to different regions, speak different languages, practices different religions, have different castes. The preferences of one group may clash with those of others.
c. This clash of decisions can be solved by brutal power. Whichever group is more powerful will dictate its terms and others will have to accept that. But this will lead to resentment.
d. But in a democracy, one can find a solution to this. Here no one is a permanent winner. No one is permanent loser. Different groups can live with one another peacefully e.g. In India different people live together.
