I woke up to read that Rahul Gandhi would take over the congress. If you think about it, he would in fact be the 5th generation of people from the Nehru family to hold a high post in politics; Motilal Nehru being the first.
In a democracy, if one family had been at the helm for the better part of 5 generations, you must wonder if the process has been truly democratic. I pity the congress for its narrow-mindedness. To have no democratic process to elect party leadership makes the largest single party in our democracy a family business. And this is true for a number of other parties in India. This has led me to believe that the Indian democracy has unfortunately become no more that an alternating two-family anarchy.
