India’s Democracy is often referred as a ‘Miracle Democracy’ by the western press. No country has more heroically pursued the promise of democracy. Against the odds of staggering poverty, conflicting religious passions, linguistic pluralism, regional separatism, caste injustice and natural resource scarcity, corruption and social unrest. Indians have lifted themselves largely by their own sandal straps to become a stalwart democracy and emerging global power.

Inspite of all the achievements in the last 60 years, we the people in India grumble, criticize and blame the Government, the political & bureaucratic class, justice system, police and the sorts. This only indicates that, there is more to do and more refinements to bring in our democratic system. As a large democratic country, we do have problems. Most of our problems can be addressed by collaborative efforts between people to people, people to government, and people to corporate programs. The New Age interactive media; which is an amalgamation of web 2.0, social media, IPTV, Interactive Billboards, Mobile VAS, OOi Paper and Digital Signage has the potential to provide the necessary framework for interactions and make the collaboration productive, transparent and effective.

The lecture focuses on some of the initial thoughts, concepts of participatory democracy and how most of the current problems can be easily resolved with frameworks based on Interactive Media.
