Equality is a democratic ideal and in this age of democracy, it is the sine qua non of a democratic govt. The history of mankind is the history of equality and liberty. Throughout the nook and corner of the world the march of equality is received with cheers. Equality literally means a levelling process whereby the difference between the rich and the poor can be minimised. Equality is of different types. From the beginning of human civilization and the quest for knowledge, the political philosophers have tried to analyse this concept. Legal Equality or Civil Equality -It means that all are equal in the eyes of law and there is rule of law. It also means equal opportunity must be provided by law to all without any discrimination. All persons must be subjected to same civil law and without this democracy will be a theo­retical absurdity.Secondly, Social Equality :It means that all citizens in a society must be treated at par with each other and there will be no discriminatory treatment on the ground of race, sex, religion, education, caste etc. The Preamble of our Constitution aims at social equality and the directive principles of state policy further strengthens our cherished ambition. Thirdly,Political Equality-it is the nerve-centre of a demo­cratic polity. Democracy emerged and thrives on this principle. It means that all the people must be provided with equal right in the field of vot­ing, contesting and holding public offices. The highest office of the land is within the reach of a common man in the street.Fouthly,Economic Equality-It means that wealth should be enjoyed by all equally. Last but not the least, National Equality –it means that all the nations of the world are equal. With the growth of international outlook the idea of 'one world one state' has been put forth by some writers to save this world from atomic warfare. All nations are equal in the eyes of inter­national law while dealing with other nations of the world.Thus, to conclude, equality is an abstract concept with a magical touch that has inspired timid millions to revolt in the past. Political philosophers and revolutionaries have used this concept profusely to win over the hearts of the common man. Thus, democracy as a form of government and a way of life can succeed only when there is equality in general and political equality in particular.

Thanks Kusumsharmaskm
This is the best
Equality is one thing which a country or state need to develop.equality helps every citizen of a nation to develop leader ship quality.

equality leads to unity,unity leads to development of nation.

For example INDIA-in past india their were many battles and disunity between each empire this is due to equality if india would have thought that all the citizen are equal then sure we would not suffer alot.then british took a chance and they invaded india then they thought to settle completely in india and at last they maid clashes between two kings of different kingdom and they finally won and got a chance to rule india this is due to un equality between indians if they thought that al are equal then british who came as an invader would have not got a chance to rule india but at last india struggled  lot finally they won and they thrown british out of the nation.

This is just an example their are more than hundread example like this so  equality is the main thing to the development of nation.
