Congratulations to Obama and Democracy

In a few months, United States will have a new president and President Obama will start writing a new chapter in the history of United States and, perhaps, the world.

Democracy and Capitalism are two ideologies that are very close to my heart. Growing up in one of the most vibrant democracies in the world, and debating in the great colleges of Delhi University, I came across many arguments for and against Democracy and Capitalism.  I devoured “Das Kapital” and loved every page of “The Wealth of Nations”.

As I learned more, I was convinced that the principles of Democracy and Capitalism are the only means to deliver Liberty, Fraternity and Equality to all mankind.

I still remain firm in my belief.

Democracy has already shown its power today and while the world may be losing its faith in Capitalism, in the years to come, that faith will be restored too.

My congratulations, from one great democracy to another.

Wow! That is news! It will be interesting to see if the sales of religious books has also gone up?

After all, “religion is the opiate of the masses”
