Q.3 :- After reading this chapter, three students drew different conclusions. Which of these do you agree with and why? Give your reasons in about 50 words.
(a) Thommam Power sharing is necessary only in societies which have religious, linguistic or ethnic divisions.
(b) Mathayi Power sharing is suited only for big countries that have regional divisions.
(c) Ouseph Every society needs some form of power sharing even if they are small or do not have social divisions.
We are agree with Ouseph because every society needs power sharing even if they are small or do not have social divisions. A democratic system of government ensures that the citizens acquire a stake in the system by active participation. It prevents conflict between different groups in society while promoting belongingness. It helps to maintain a balance of power among various institutions and helps check how this power is exercised. People will be more satisfied when they have a say in the functioning and decision making process in the system.
