I suppose I would say that it has been the fact that India has managed to remain a democratic country ever since independence.  Compare India today with Pakistan and you will see why this is a big deal.  Pakistan went down the road to military dictatorship and then a weak civilian government that has to keep the military happy.  India is better off with its democracy and that's a big achievement for a country that became independent so recently.
