Celebration of India's Democracy at Lincoln Memorial, Washington, DC

Democracy survives in India.

The world was looking up to India for its sustained democratic structure, and thank God to the people for regaining it. The key element in a democracy is to debate and discuss every issue and not pass important legislation in the dark hours of the night. India had lost the debate and discussion part in its parliament in the last ten years. Thanks to the people of India for waking up and giving the opposition enough seats to prevent corruption, nepotism, authoritarianism, and abuse of government machinery to silence the opposition.


We appreciate India’s journalist heroes who vigorously fought false information, denigration, and hateful rhetoric toward significant nation populations. They did not fear going to jail, nor were they bought out, as much of the Indian Media speaks for the governing political party. Here are a few names.

Dhruv Rathee, Siddharth Varadarajan, Karan Thapar, Arfa Khanum Sherwani, Ravish Kumar, Ajith Anjum, Abhisar Sharma, Zubair Muslim Mirror, Pragya Mishra, Rana Ayub, Aakar Patel, Sakshi Joshi, Sham Mira Singh, Kumkum Binwal, Deepak Sharma, and many more.

Way back when PM Indira Gandhi had imposed the emergency rule in India, Indian Express fought off and Mr. Goenka even went to jail to save Indian democracy.


You are invited


What: Celebration of India’s Democracy. We invite you to join us in singing patriotic songs, seeing posters of inclusive India, and hoisting the Indian and American flags by members of all communities, preferably children, at the Celebration of India’s Democracy.
