Lets Vote Bangalore!

Standard

So today happens to be voting day in my city. I’ve been actually looking forward to voting, I believe actions speak louder than words. Agree??? So today was the 2nd time I voted and I was pretty pumped up about it. The husband had a different polling booth and mine was along with my family in a different area. A, happened to be the 6th voter at his booth. WOW.

I went along with my family later to vote and something really funny happened. I knew which party I wanted to vote for but neither did I know the local candidate representing the party nor did I know the symbol of the party. When I went inside the polling booth, I froze. I didn’t know what to do and I didn’t want to vote for any random person. All of a sudden out of nowhere the name of the local candidate flashed in my head (I had overheard a conversation about him few days back) and BOOM there I found his name. I was happy that my vote didn’t go down the drain. When I came out and told my family they all had to say ” how can you be so DUMB” Was a good laugh after all.

Also,this thought came into my head when I overheard a few people talking couple of days back about how they would vote for a party/ a person based on their caste. I found it really funny. At our place we have different religion people working. My domestic helps are Muslims and my cook is a Christian. The husband and I are Hindus. There has never been a single day when we have differentiated our house help based on castes and religion. So why when it comes to choosing the right person for our country? Think about it!
