possibility of analysis of the post-Congress polity since 1989 As Kothari suggests that phase went through short-term eruptions of public disappointments Have we finally reached a “new consensus” That would be the single-most important intellectual agenda for political scientists for the coming decade in understanding the final collapse of the Congress But above all Kothari’s analysis of Indian politics will be remembered for its deep engagement with democracy This is evident in both his pre-1975 scholarship and his post-1980 introspections What is common to both is a firm belief not only in something fuzzy called democracy but also in our capacity as a society to chart a democratic path as well as his confidence that India (or any other “new democracy”) does not have to adopt the received models of democracy because just as American — or any other Western — democracy with all its idiosyncrasies is an instance of democracy India’s democracy can also have its own trajectory with all its deficits and faults It was with this confidence that Kothari dealt with the Congress system not as an aberration but just another way of doing politics — and hence “an interesting addition to the present typology of party systems” This confidence was not about his formulation but about India’s democratic politics being another normal way of conducting politics rather than a queer animal in the zoo Apart from the creativity of his conceptual formulations this understated assertion about different expressions of democratic politics sets Kothari apart as India’s political scientist par excellence The writer teaches political science at the Savitribai Phule Pune University For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Shimla |

of Bhausaheb Wakchaure the sitting MP from Shirdi who crossed over from the Shiv Sena last month The profiles of the other candidates fly in the face of the promised thrust to young and fresh leaders
