Taiwan, India united in democracyBy Rup Narayan DasOn Aug. 15, India is to celebrate its Independence Day. Both India and Taiwan have had a checkered history in their trysts with democracy. The growth and prosperity of India and Taiwan achieved through democratic means are not palatable to the autocratic regime, and Beijing never loses an opportunity to debunk the democratic credentials of India and Taiwan. It is in the larger interest of democracy, and in the interests of India and Taiwan that the two need to collaborate and learn from each other to make democracy robust and bolster people’s faith and trust in the efficacy of democracy. However, unlike Taiwan, India is a vast and complex country.
