Is boycotting polling correct?

For a democratic system to sustain and flourish, it is voting that is the most important tool. If we the people don’t elect and choose the right leader to take up our causes, we lose our own voice. 

WTN- Voting is not only a democratic right but also a duty of each eligible adult individual in a society. This is what strengthens the democratic process. Democracy is the most acceptable form of government that has been decided upon unanimously by social scientists and for a country like India it is especially the most suitable form because of her diverse cultural and ethnic mapping and the political representation we need for all.

For a democratic system to sustain and flourish, it is voting that is the most important tool. If we the people don’t elect and choose the right leader to take up our causes, we lose our own voice. Voting is empowering ourselves because it is one amongst us who is going to sit in Parliament or Assembly and try to use his power to address our problems. In a large section of today’s youth there is nonchalance and disinterestedness in exercising their right, which is a regressive and detrimental trend inimical for the country’s present interests and future possibilities.

If we don’t use our intelligence and discretion to choose the right persons to lead us, it will only be the wrong ones who would get on to the seats of power. If the country today is fraught with problems, the only way to address them is to vote and give power to the right leaders and change makers who can do it.

Complaining and whining about them won’t solve them in any case. If we have any last option to go for, it is voting only, which can make a difference to the fate and fortune of the country. Each and every vote counts and each one of us can make a difference. One vote can set the right candidate apart from the wrong. In democracy it is the power of the individual that counts, because our leaders and our democracy are only as strong as we are and we want them to be. The spirit of democracy has to be upheld at any cost.

If democracy fails, it will be autocracy, aristocracy, oligarchy or dictatorship that will take its place. Many countries have regressed back to one of these and shunning democracy has done no people any good. It has only promoted religious bigotry, violence and hatred among people and global isolation – like North Korea or Iran. It is only democratic societies which have grown prosperous and laid the foundation for better life to its people. People have fought wars and laid down their lives for centuries to establish democracy, where everyone’s voice could be heard and valued, so that no one remained neglected or deprived.

By not voting we not only weaken this precious legacy of freedom but also do a disservice to our society, nation and civilisation. We don’t need to find substitutes for democracy, what we need is only to strengthen it by our active and robust participation. -Window To News
