Civics

Democracy provides a method to deal with differences and conflicts. Elaborate this statement.


SOLUTION
(i) In any society people are bound to have differences of opinions and interests. These differences are particularly sharp in our country which has amazing social diversity.
(ii) People belong to different regions, speak different languages, practice different religions and have different castes. The preferences of one group can clash with those of other groups.
(iii) The conflict can be solved by brutal power. Whichever group is more powerful will dictate its terms and others will have to accept that. But that will lead to resentment.
(iv) Democracy provides the only peaceful solution to this problem. In democracy, no one is permanent winner. No one is a permanent loser. Different groups can live with one another peacefully. In a diverse country like India, democracy allows different kinds of people to live together.
