India’s Silent Majority

Looking at the mess that India’s politics is (and this is across all political parties) and an era of quotocracy (as Pratap Bhanu Mehta put it in an Indian Express article recently), I cannot help feeling that at some point of time Middle India will need to stop sitting back quietly and actually do want to do something about it. This will happen soon – probably before the next Lok Sabha elections.

Parties are pandering to their respective votebanks. The small numbers who band together are getting more than the large numbers who are divided. We need to think of a way how we in Middle India can come together to create India’s biggest votebank – and get solutions and money to improve daily life in the urban sprawls that we live in. The Silent Majority cannot and will not be for much longer.

    In partnership with the Ideas for Development blog, the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG) is launching an online debate that will contribute with inputs for the forthcoming IBSA Academic Forum, which will be hosted by IPC-IG on 12-13 April in Brasilia, Brazil.

    We invite you to participate in this discussion and reflect about the following issues:

    – What is the role of the emerging countries in shaping world politics?

    – How can India, Brazil and South Africa strengthen cooperation in key issues on the global agenda?

    – In which ways an improved policy dialogue among developing countries can contribute to the implementation of effective policies towards the achievement of inclusive growth and human development?
