SATYAMEV JAYATE– Survey Study A report by foreseegame.com & Microsec Research 12th August 2013 | 2 SATYAMEV JAYATE Foreseegame.com, in association with Microsec Research presents herewith an Online Survey on the current Democratic system in India. Is it the right time to hold the flag of democracy high? Does the present Democracy mean just a right to vote, or does its meaning really includes the right to live in dignity, equality and liberty? As India prepares to celebrate the 67th Independence Day, we at Foreseegame.com sought the opinion of our countrymen about the prevailing post- Independence democratic scenario. Foreseegame.com in association with Microsec Research presents its exclusive report titled Satyamev Jayate – a survey on the mindset of conscious, watchful and intelligent citizens towards the present democratic set up. Foreseegame.com is a unique portal of consumer engagement, which provides a platform for two way communication and engagement between the brand and the consumer using games of foresights. Microsec research is the research wing of Microsec Capital having experienced analysts across the sectors. We used the online feedback from the users of www.foreseegame.com .The users have been registered only on the basis of a unique mobile number and hence, it provides authenticity and genuineness of the participants. The participation is being monitored by Google. This survey witnessed the Pan-India wide participation of more than 17,800 participants; however the limitation of this sample is that it is from the group of people who are users of internet. The take away points: 1. 60% of the respondents expressed their unhappiness under the current democratic set-up, rating it as either poor or average. Only 40% of the respondents rate the happiness under current democratic system at above average levels or higher. 2. Most of the respondents think that Indian Democratic System failed to properly handle terrorism. 61% of them say that India’s performance in dealing with terrorism is either poor or average. 3. When it comes to freedom of speech for media and individuals, the figures are alarming. Close to 50% of the respondents said that Indian Democratic System does not provide freedom to its media and individuals. This clearly indicates there are inherent weakness in the system and the core value of democracy is under a question mark. Executive Summary
