Today is the first phase of Indian General Election to the Parliment..
For my non – Indian friends..To be to the point…In India elections are always held in 3- 4 phases over a span of 15 – 20 days in different states considering the vastness n the population and the security reasons in the country..
Very unfortunate. though M eligible to vote and I have a Voterz ID ,I haven’t voted so far in any of the Assembly /Parlimentary Polls… cos every time during the election M here In Singapore… N In India voting is not mandatory…
But i have always felt that voting should be made compulsory in India..cos every vote counts…And very surprisingly ,the very educated society forms the bulk of this non-voting community
SO this time I was taken by surprise ,by seeing the television ads by many newspapers,media creating awareness for voting… The ONE i could vote THE BEST of the AD’s is below..
But though i always think is that so that someone has to come n tell u to vote.?Itz u’r right exercise it.. atleast vote invlis rather than someone voting in your name… Now i feel..yeah atleast this kind off awareness will atleast send the 10% of non -voting community to vote -Machines…Better
But is India voting for a change is a BIG question to be answered!!
Part _II to Be continued… May be later in the day?
