Alright Ma'm.

1. US is a presidential democracy while India is a parliamentary democracy.
2. Indian head of state is symbolic, real show is run by PM, in US prez is the de facto head.(same thing as #1 but who cares)
3. In India states have no sovereignty, so they are provinces unlike US.
4. No PM post in US (unofficially speaker of the house is known as PM)
5. Lower House is congress Upper house is senate in US/ In India Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha
6. Prez's term is 4 years, in India it is 5 years
7. In US Prez(same person) can be elected only twice. No such limit in India.
8. In US one has to be US citizen by birth to hold the highest office. Not so in India.
9. In india we have more than 650 political parties, in US there are hardly 5 or 6 parties.
10. US considers itself to be a capitalist country, India still holds the socialist tag.

3 improvements:
1. Tainted politicans should not hold any public office.
2. Every politician should submit a progress card at the end of each session.
3. voters should have the Right to recall.

Hope this satisfies your needs ma'm.

Just a few corrections:
1) The US is a republic, not a democracy
2) The US President isn't the de facto head of state, he is the head of state.
3) The states in the US do not have sovereignty, that's one of the reasons for civil war
4) The Speaker of the house isn't known as the PM. There are no ministers in the US. The Speaker of the House is the leader of Congress and the third in line to be President.

It was said in comparison to indian prez... In India PM is de facto head...prez is a stamp.

States here can have their own laws, they are not given to oblige the centre on legal matters.
4) The Speaker of the house isn't known as the PM. There are no ministers in the US. The Speaker of the House is the leader of Congress and the third in line to be President.
In the US, the Speaker of the House holds an equivalent office to a Prime Minister. As such, he/she is the leader of the larger portion of the legislative branch of government, while the office of the president comprises the executive branch. Linkwa
Shaart message...verry shaart..

India is a direct democracy, the US is not. The framers of the US Constitution specifically and explicitly did not want the excesses of a direct democracy. I suggest you read up on it, particularly some of the Federalist Papers.

Dude, the Indian PM is not the de facto head of state. The head of state in India is the Indian President. The Indian President doesn't have the legislative prerogative, but is still the head of state. The head of state is a ceremonial position in India.

States in the US can makes laws, but federal laws take precedent over them. The states are obligated to follow Federal laws.

Dude have you read your own link? Seriously man, the head of the legislative branch, The Speaker of the House, isn't the Prime Minister.

Will do...will sure do...AFAIK republic and democracy are not mutually exclusive and latter can't exist without former.

Dude, the Indian PM is not the de facto head of state. The head of state in India is the Indian President. The Indian President doesn't have the legislative prerogative, but is still the head of state. The head of state is a ceremonial position in India.

As you said in India prez post is ceremonial. On most of the matter it has to agree with the recommendation of parliamentary committee. I never said that it is not the head of state...I said that the show is run by PM.

States in the US can makes laws, but federal laws take precedent over them. The states are obligated to follow Federal laws.

I might have erred here... Don't know the details.. through news etc.(and the fact that laws are different in different states) I gathered that states are sovereign here.

Dude have you read your own link? Seriously man, the head of the legislative branch, The Speaker of the House, isn't the Prime Minister.

Read again I wrote "unofficially"... I forgot the incident.. once a visiting head of state joked about it too to Bush...
Shorter the message... bigger the thing...

As far as i know, Direct democracy is one, where people make decisions directly and not the elected reps. In India, people do elect MPs who in turn select the PM (at least on paper it is supposed to work that way)

One country which comes close to a direct democracy is switzerland where most of the decisions are made by rfrendum

You're totally right. As I recall, I could totally be wrong, they have one of the lowest voting percentages as well.

Sarah Palin / Mamta Banerjee

although that arguably qualifies more as a similarity than a difference in many ways...

BTW, what are the pitfalls of direct democracy? I know it is not practical for a large electorate like India's, but just asking.
