India is sometimes described as “the world’s largest democracy.” With over a billion people, India is second only to China in population, and although it is certainly troubled, it has a more democratic system than its Asian neighbour.  People in India and Indians around the world celebrate on January 26th of each year, commemorating the establishment of the Republic of India with the passing of the Constitution in 1950.
