This chapter sums up the conclusions drawn from the qualitative and quantitative analyses undertaken in the earlier chapters in the book and places them in the context of democracy in India. Public discourse in democratic societies is marked by the tension between the rights of individuals to form associations and express themselves, and the need for public order. This chapter underlines the maladies in the events occurring in the public space in India, and its impact on the social and political discourse in modern India.

Keywords:   democracy, public discourse, democratic societies, public events, social discourse, political discourse
