India has been battling basic contradictions between constitutional morality and hierarchical feudal constructs in society. In particular, we have been grappling with constraints of inequality in forms and structures of participation, linked to caste, gender and religious prejudices. Yet we have failed to address political culture and the overwhelming influence it exerts on public life and ethics. Where did we go wrong?
