In an NDTV 'debate', a student said "This is a democratic country, these politicians are trying to make it into a socialist country". I don't think he knows this: The preamble of the constitution defines India as a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic (wiki page).
"Equality" is a constitutional right in India (including reservations for 'backward' classes).
PS. Hindi is not India's 'national language'. It does not have one.
