1977. Emergency.

Sandeep has a seriously interesting post about the Emergency, with first person accounts from people like Khushwant Singh and Kuldip Nayar on what happened on the day it was declared.

Further to what Sandeep writes, I think the rejection of the Emergency and ejection of Indira Gandhi from power marks the high point of Indian democracy.
