What is Government?
A government is a group of people who manage and protect a country. Government could be democratic (chosen by the people), or autocratic (controlled by a dictator, or by a monarch)
The democratic government in India functions at three levels: local, state, and central/national.
Key Elements of a Democratic Government:
People's participation is a very important feature of a democracy.
Disputes and conflicts in democracies are solved with the help of fair laws and courts.
In a democracy, everyone is treated equally and justly, without any discrimination.
