The South Asian re­gion be­came ben­e­fi­cia­ries of demo­cratic rule at a time when Europe and the Amer­i­cas were al­ready be­gin­ning to en­joy its ad­van­tages. Though lag­ging be­hind in many as­pects, still, many South Asian coun­tries are ac­tu­ally be­gin­ning to catch up with their Euro­pean and Amer­i­can coun­ter­parts, as high­lighted in the ar­ti­cle, ‘The Democ­racy Route’.

Pak­istan seems a bit worse for wear as com­pared to neigh­bor­ing coun­tries such as In­dia, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Nepal. How­ever it is some­what com­fort­ing to learn that th­ese coun­tries have their own set of prob­lems to over­come. Pak­istan could take a leaf out of their book and fol­low their ex­am­ple to ul­ti­mately im­prove its own cir­cum­stances.
