We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.

A new meaning of Democracy ...

A great quote by Pratap Bhanu Mehta in his article in "Indian Express", on "Mandate for a dream" , about landslide gradual change in the Indian democracy ...

"Democracy will not bring angels to power. But its dignity is something deeper, and altogether more enchanting. It allows for the greatest freedom: the capacity for reinvention. Democracy will give even devils a second chance. In doing so, it tames them, rescues them from their own hubris."
