Since the time man found the way to express with words, and evolved enough to understand
others' words, speech; in its presence or absence, has played an important role
in the development and shaping of human society.
Speech has always been seen with the power to bring one closer to a person or the
effect to take a person away from one.
Speech played such an important role in human society that people grouped themselves
on the basis of their language, their ideas as expressed in their speech, and their
interests as they were passed on verbally.
Speech in human history has become the biggest unifying or dividing factor and to
a great extent an instrument for change.
Speech is the only human faculty by which a human being has found a compelling way
to influence another human being particularly with speech's power on emotions and
its ability to touch the ego. Speech has become the universal common medium for
exchange of thoughts, ideas, feelings, demands and desires.
Speech is a facility that can be employed by a human to connect with any other human
being. Speech gives identity to the self, and speech at its collective best at the
macro level has given birth to the best system of governance and attempt for social
order known to mankind called democracy.
The hallmark of democracy is, that differences between human beings are seen through
spoken words and at the same time unity between people is also achieved through
speech, and all human weaknesses, failings, strengths and divinity are expressed
The most superior human ability speech, manifests itself in a democratic society
as a healthy debate between right thinking individuals.
To imagine a vibrant society without healthy debates is like imagining a glorious
symphony without sound.
India, the biggest democracy in the world is proud of the fact that a country of
one billion, with nations within the Nation- where landscape, culture and language
change every hundred kilometers, has still remained united as One, only through
the biggest interaction of politically expressed differences, by way of debates
in this living democracy.
The soul of India is its democracy and the heartbeat must be the debates as heard
from the by lanes to the parliament, that give hope for every citizen to be heard
and his ideas represented.
