This blog tells us why England is the hub of democracy.Though India suffered a lot due to British Imperialism, she learnt many things from England, especially in Judiciary, administration and Elections.All of us feel it is English and the English who made us world citizens.
This lesson helps one to know howmany different ethnic groups exist and how they live harmoniously despite the difference.What is true of England is equally true of India too.After all , we are the two great democracies in the World.Of course, America will join us.This is a wonderful blog on cross cultural links.Bravo! the British council
