It has been a bad year for what some political scientists call 'extreme democracy', as reflected by the Brexit vote or Italy referendum
It seems appropriate, writing on the death anniversary of Babasaheb Ambedkar, that I am mindful of the Indian Constitution. Even as a schoolboy, when it seemed turbid and turgid, I was taught to celebrate the many freedoms he enshrined in its dense prose, long before I could fully grasp the democratic processes it protects. But this year, I’m especially grateful for a democratic exercise the Constitution does not allow: referendums.
