India: et Modi(g) valg?

"We will take democracy to every corner of the country." Rajiv Kumar, leader of India's national election commission, echoed these words as he announced the election dates.

From April 19th and for six weeks ahead, nearly 1 billion Indians can go to the ballot boxes. That's almost 1/8 of the world's population. Why do we know so little about this historic election? How has democracy functioned under Prime Minister Modi? Is India actually called Bharat now? And if India is to be a guiding star for the future of democracy, how does that affect us?

On Tuesday April 16th Studentersamfunnet in Bergen organized a debate where we collectively took the temperature of the world's largest population - and democracy.
