India Shining?!!

What happened in India?
India is shining….no doubt …. a vibrant democracy which threw away the ruling party which told the electorate that India was shining! Probably that is the beauty or the beast of a democracy.

The shining part of India is the voter, who actively participated in the election excercise and I hope they made a choice which they wanted.
