On June 25th 1975, Mrs Indira Gandhi declared a State of Emergency. The press was muzzled, civil rights were abolished and tens of thousands of political activists, including Jayaprakash Naryan (After emergency his JANAT PARTY won the assembly elections becoming the FIRST NON-CONGRESS government  ). In Effect India came under the influence of dictatorship.
This was submitted by Ashok Mahadevan a former Editor of Reader’s Digest to Times of India for publication.. This column was actually an excerpt of an article “Death of Democracy” which originally appeared in Sri Lankan paper when Emergency was declared in that country. The ingenious item death with the demise of “D.E.M.O’Cracy”, who left behind several relatives, including son named L.I.Bertie.
