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.

Think about it: The election commission of India decides to go for ‘Electronic voting machines’ for an electorate of 650 million! I dont know how many countries need to be put together to get that figure. 375 million voted, …. electronically. The results are out …. more stats at http://www.eci.gov.in

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.
