Some links to progress in India

Diversity deficit across apex bodies of Indian parties by Rukmini S:
"Among Hindus, who dominate all six parties, the BSP’s CEC has the most SC representatives, while both the CPM’s Polit Bureau and the Nationalist Congress Party’s National Working Committee have none.
The NCP is in fact the most upper caste party, followed by CPI(M), in this metric."
The parochial Indian by Nissim Mannathukkaren: "India set out to establish a sovereign, socialist, secular and democratic republic. Socialism and secularism have fallen off on the wayside; now it hobbles with sovereignty and a wounded democracy. Ambedkar had warned a long time ago: “There is no nation of Indians in the real sense of the world, it is yet to be created.”"
