It is really heart warming to see how indians rally to vote for an idol. The number of sms pouring in the media coverage and mileage for a show that makes mockery of originality. With all due respects to the participants and judges i dont mean to crticize them. Only if we could show the same enthusiasm for the social issues surrounding us I am sure we can achieve the vision India 2020.
Why not make the Indian election similar to Indian Idol?
People have time to sms their vote yet they fail to turn up in the electoral booths to cast the vote inspite of election day being declared a public holiday. Why can't our Election commission of India learn from the nation's favourite pass time show Indian idol and use a novel approach such as smsing your vote or better email your vote. I am sure the percentage of people who vote will surely increase. This would also give opportunity for people who are away to cast their vote from the convinence of the workplace or from their home away from home.
