India at one point was a feudalistic society and most of the country was ruled by kings and Zamindars. Though India shed its feudalism and put up democratic colors it has become a fiefdom of politicians and their families. Feudalism might have gone but FEUDALISTIC MENTALITY of the people has not and till such time India will continue to create EQUALS without any EQUALITY.
