Answer :

There are many challenges faced by a democratic country. Casteism, communalism, poverty, illiteracy etc., are some of the challenges.

1. The Government carefully monitors the situation and enacts new Laws and makes some amendments to the constitution.

2. However, these changes alone cannot help in overcoming the challenges.

3. The political parties who differ in their opinion always pose a threat.

4. In a populated country like India, it is very difficult to implement the legal changes made from time to time.

5. For example, many laws have been passed to abolish dowry. Still, there are many rural villages who are not aware of this Act and hence dowry still persists in those communities.

6. Even among the educated population, dowry is still in practice as a status symbol.

7. Many laws have come up against child marriage but still, people of remote villages who are stuck to their million-year-old traditions are not ready to come out of that and child marriage is still in practice.

8. Education is made compulsory by law up to the age of fourteen, but due to poverty many of the rural population and Below Poverty Line send their children as daily wage earners.

These are some examples to prove that legal-constitutional changes alone cannot overcome the challenges in democracy unless the citizens of a country are ready to change themselves.
