Our system of parliamentary democracy is based on independence without any check and balances.
Parliament claims supermacy and the judiciary makes similar claims. The Govt.excercises executive powers without any control of parliament through executive orders.
Checks and balance are more in the name than in practice like impeachment proceedings of President or judges.
corruption was recognised as a serious problem from the time of independence but only half hearted measures were taken to control it.
Lok Pal has been castigated by Rahul Gandhi in Parliament as an institution over and above the constitution.
Mr. S. Roy is also not supportive of LOKPAL insitution.
Judiciary gives judgements after protracted proceedings and delays but not necessarily justice.
Yet are not prepared to improve system of delivery and free from corrupt pratices.
Parliament has failed to legislate,letting the colonial laws to continue for more than 67 years.
Parliament has failed to excercise control over executive.
As an expression of the will of the people,the recent Elections were unprecedented. If we take it as an expression of people,s anger and frustration with the system, can we expect some improvement in the system of governace-less of corrution, qucker delivery of services.

Subject: Re: [IAC#RG] SUPREME COURT CRYING FOR JUSTICE
Ours system works without accountability, Legislative, executive and judiciary are working without any transparency. There should be a proper mechanism to take action against errant member within each body. Unfortunately we don't have that. We are compelled to believe that , "No IAS officer ever going to do any mistake. So he is entitled to continue in service up to the age of retirement. Like wise Judicial members are just like god and there will not be any question of they committing mistakes, forget about corruption,.. So we have impeachment system to remove them from service.. for the last 67 years Not single judicial member had been removed from service, we should be proud of that,. corruption can be committed only by lover level officers,, they have been removed time and again after taking departmental actions. If we want a proper system in place, then all the people who are in enjoying top most power should be made accountable to a transparent and strong lokpal like body. So lokpal is needed only for the top post, these top will take care of the subordinate.
