Try to give two opposing views too. Somewhere this essay tends look completely biased towards the positives of social movements. There are examples of revolutions being good for a nation, or some social movements, such as feminist movements still struggling to find a foothold and larger acceptance in the dynamics of many societies.
In democratic societies, civil disobedience as such is not a crime. If a disobedient is punished by the law, it is not for civil disobedience, but for the recognised offences she commits, such as blocking a road or disturbing the peace, or trespassing, or damaging property, etc. Therefore, if judges are persuaded, as they sometimes are, either not to punish a disobedient or to punish her differently from other people who breach the same laws, it must be on the basis of some feature or features of her action which distinguish it from the acts of ordinary offenders.
Whereas a revolution has a tendency to turn violent. It leads to loss of life and property. Because revolution has a lot of force in it, it is also short lived. A revolution is led by radicals and therefore doesn’t work towards achieving a conciliation. The French revolution and Bolshevik revolution were able to over throw the imperial powers however those who succeeded the imperial government, turned into authoritarian regime. There is a danger that revolution follows a authoritarian or unstable form of regime.
Some thoughts on role of education in creating political awareness along with social awareness was necessary. How education can enable one to use tools like RTI for effective empowerment by making accountable the administrative machinery that do not acts on constitutional mandate is also missing.
Social movement is considered as the part of democracy. It is accepted as the method to bring the changes in social , economic and political system for the benefits of the society as a whole.
Its power is evident from the fact that Gandhiji and INC won the freedom using the same method against the powerful british raj. Gandhiji is opposed the violence and won the support of the masses.
India in the past was composed of large kingdoms ruled by kings. The position of king was hereditary. It is stated in Arthashastra by Kautilya that one of the main function of the king is welfare of the people. No where he has mentioned any formal control structure on the powers of the King. Therefore King was supreme.
Liberal thinking and free speech are vital organs in a democracy. The right to liberty, equality and fraternity are ideals incorporated in various democracies all over the world. These are the main pillars upon which the institution of democracy rests upon. These rights enable people to criticize governments on issues and policies which are not pro people. The government can be brought down and another put in place if the government become autocratic and arrogant. Moreover, the judiciary also try to check the government if it becomes coercive.

Men still think of women as an object of sexual pleasure. Movies have played an important role in putting forward such stereotypes. Sexual harassment in work places, voyeurism, stalking has been indicative of such mindset.
Revolutions is a stage marked by high level of violence, exhausting population and grass root efforts.. Revolutionaries mobilize people based on their emotions instead of mindful consciousness. Destruction is a simple process but it is a building process which is fundamental for democracy because democracy deals with different people, ideologies and methodologies. But what will happen after the revolution has succeeded to topple the existing system. Who will replace it. Democracy develops gradually with the continuous negotiation & dialogues. Revolutions fails to establish the democratic culture. In absence of democratic institutions, revolution sometimes ends up creating more chaos.
