it is important to live in democracy.
We all are born with equal rights despite of who we are, where we are born whether we are rich or poor and democracy protects those rights for every individual.
Democracy clearly means rule of people. Equal rights for every individual is a main intention of democracy. We people are dreamers. we all dream of something since childhood and as we grow we work hard to make those dreams reality and directly or indirectly democracy plays major role in bringing those dreams in reality by the different rights those are provided to us by democracy.
Some major rights of them are Freedom of speech, The right to a fair and public trail, The right to due process, The right to vote freely, The right to worship freely if it wasn't for all these and other rights we would be leading totally different lives.
Freedom of speech let us express ourselves and our opinions.
The right to a fair trail, it is a right given to us to enjoy a legal process that is just and fair. The right for a free and unperturbed media, democracy only functions effectively when it's ctizens are given access to information and are properly informed about the affairs of its government.
The right to vote freely, one can vote any party which he/she thinks is proper for the place of governing body.
The right to worship religion, one can choose freely to worship any religion he/she want to feel some level of spiritual fulfillment.
But the most important right is Freedom of information, one can dig in and get any information he/she want. Learn whatever he/she want. These and many more other rights given by democracy ensures every citizen of the country is treated equally and properly also all these rights defines freedom given to every individual which he/she deserves. Democracy let one walk in this world being oneself and living freely.
Also as we all know, democracy has different types, some of them are Direct democracy, Representative democracy, Presidential democracy. A direct democracy is when citizens get to vote for the policy directly. People vote on issue and decide the fate of their countries.
Representative democracy is when people choose to vote for who will represent them in parliament.
Presidential democracy is when president of the state has significant amount of power over the government.
All these democratic government works differently but one thing is common in all of them that is all the citizens of country even the king or an elected president are equal under the law.
As the definition given by former president of US, Democracy is a government of the people,by the people, for the people, governing body doesn't rule people neither is it above them it takes care of it's people as being on of them.
