Democratic Voting a Failed System?

The Democratic Voting is a statistical fallacy. Why? Let me come to my point, why is the concept that majority wins followed everywhere. Where in the statistic does it tell that the majority is always the correct. According to mathematics, majority only shows the likeliness of the people to choose that particular person. But nowhere does it say that it is the correct one.

Therefore, should majority be followed even if it is known that the choice is WRONG. What is the justification for it? Or has anyone even tried to justify it? Is this the natural law that must be followed blindly?

History have shown us how a single person have fought against the majority. Starting from all the scientists to leaders. Should the truth always remain fighting against the majority. Is that how it is, and should be? Can't we adapt our senses to bring the right choice rather than a major choices?

May be its the survival of the fittest, where the more stronger in number always wins. Right choice are always smudged by the majority. Every year we see the election process go on and on , and the mistakes seem to repeat itself. Very rarely does it happen that the right choices are made and even that happen as an alternative choice or a choice due to helplessness.

Most people can't differentiate between right and wrong. Haven't we learnt enough from the reality TV shows where the winner is not always the best. Isn't that the most visible truth of why majority or democratic voting fails.

Further democratic voting is never so democratic. Democratic means decision made from unbiased analysis. Do you think that happens? Often people make decision based upon others choice and not their own. They feel insecure doing free thinking.

Thus I say Democratic Voting is a failed system. We need something else to determine not the popular choice but the right choice.


  1. Deep,
    The points you have made are true, but I don't think there is any other better way.

    By now we know that Monarchy, Feudocracy, Elitism, Communism etc all forms of governance where few people decided for the whole nation has failed. The big question is if one or a small group decides, who or which group should be that?

    Taking all these things in consideration, I dont think Democratic Voting system is failed. After all, all the major developed nations follow this form of election. And it has worked for long.

  2. Yes, I do agree with you on that point that most of the other options seems to have failed in it self.

    But, still my concern is can we come up with a new system of thinking as the internet has been so influencial in the recent 2008 US election.. I was just wondering if we are stumbling upon a new area of Voting or election.

Good Ad Versus Bad Ad

At InRev, for past few days we have been working on our new project. The project is about collaborative blogging, from the blogger around the world. As Bhupendra and I have been blogging for long time, with his immense experience, our team has been working to revamp the globalthoughtzand create a new blogging experience. In this site, we are planning to add a section where people can add their advertisement. We thought lets start by our own :), with already so many products on the line, it was obvious.

So there goes an effort to create a small 128 px by 128 px logo. If you are a designer, you know that designing is a very time consuming process. For hours, you just test around with colors. Remember there are 256X 256X 256combination of colors!! Its hard job selecting one.
Lets start with F-Cube: In short F-cube is a Free Economic Reporting Site. Let me exhibit some Ad made for it and its pros and cons. (Please don't click on the image. Wait till the end. Thank You)

Selling a Comb to a Bald Person?

Here my friend, Ashay, put it very truly to me that the marketer's most challenge is to sell a comb to a bald. First, I am not trying to justify anything here. But I just couldn't help thinking how on earth am I going to sell a comb to a bald. How? Just how? I kept pondering upon it till late night. I actually had very few options with me, the first was obviously to use Google and Find? :)

But, I didn't do that. Some how I was still in confusion. Then just before going to sleep, I had an discussion with my other friend, on types of marketing on issues related to customer centric marketing. Hmm. Then some how it hit me. I went back to basic on my own philosophy, sell things that is needed. So here is a small anecdote I prepared :
Sale Person: Hello sir. How are you? Do you have a time, plzzz?
Bald Person: (Almost confused and in social causality) OK OK what is it? I don't have time.
Sale Person: Here sir, do you want to by a comb? 
Bald Person : Can't you see I am bald? …

Passion and Flying

There is an interesting aspect of flying which grasps everyone's imagination. The freedom and the control of moving around the space without any obstacle is just too much to ask for, in one man's life :). Isn't it?

As a young kid like everyone, flying was a dream. Not to mention the great stories of Leonardo Da Vinci and the Wrights brothers, who not only dreamt but also went on designing one, would inspire you to believe that some day in future it would be possible to fly like a bird. So let me tell you a short story about myself where I took myself to some limit into achieving this. :) I have been wanting to tell this for a long time but never found any occasion or reason to do so.
It was long ago when I was still in grade 3/4, should be around 1993. Space Channel was just installed in our house and I would spend time watching cartoons and other science programs. That was when I noticed gliders and parachutes. The shear simplicity of the design took me by surprise. Just…
