Overseas citizen of India

I do not understand why India doesn’t allow its citizens to have dual citizenship? Today my brother became a Canadian citizen and unfortunately he have to surrender his Indian passport. Although he is eligible to get this Overseas Citizen of India card, he will lose his right to vote, to serve for Indian government and buy agricultural land in India. One vote less in our process to get a corruption free government for India but may be one vote more to get a stable Canadian government! I don’t know why I was more emotional about it than my brother, after experiencing what I am going through now, I can’t even dream about giving up my Indian passport!

a bit on the lighter side,

sometimes don't you think that too many votes is what is leading to corrupt governments :)
