Abstract: For the longest time human societies have aspired towards and experimented with democratic forms of governing their polities with differing degrees of success.Our founding fathers had immense faith in the ideals of democratic governance and the wisdom of the Indian people to successfully sustain it. This is borne out by the fact that around the time of our independence, there were only 22 democracies accounting for only 31 per cent of the population in the entire world which ensured universal adult franchise to their citizens. The United States of America had yet not given African Americans the right to vote. At birth, India was part of a minority of nations who were audacious enough to embrace democracy. At the time, many western experts did not give India a chance to survive as a democracy. They said that India was too diverse, too impoverished and too uneducated to be able to sustain a democracy. However, seventy years down the line all those voices have been silenced and India has gone on to assume its rightful place among the leaders of democratic nations in the world. We succeeded because our founding fathers treated difference and diversity as a source of strength and not weakness and designed institutions so as to ensure spaces of representation and deliberation among as many diverse voices as possible. Principles of diversity and deliberation were the cornerstone of our democratic experiment. However, by that time, across the world, Second Chambers like the Rajya Sabha, were the exception rather than the norm. The House of Lords in Britain had been effectively stripped off its power and reduced to an advisory role. Second Chambers formed constituent units of the federations only in the United States of America and Australia.
